Help us raise awareness and vital funds to support families navigating the challenges of the NICU and receive the financial support they so desperately need. Sign up for the Ambassador Program today to create your fundraising page and join us this September to make a difference for local NICU families.

We appreciate any donation you can provide to support our mission. Your generosity helps local NICU families with their everyday living expenses and supports those experiencing the trauma of infant loss with their unexpected funeral costs. We believe every family should be able to properly memorialize their child.


In 2023, with the help of our NICU Awareness Ambassadors and Partners, we raised $33,341 to support local NICU families in the Carolinas.

Thank you to each person who has donated and made our work possible. Your support means the world to us!
