NICU Cheer
NICU Gifts & Christmas Book Drive

This December will be the first time we’re sending our gift bags out to all tertiary level NICU’s in Melbourne, Australia. Every parent of a premature/sick baby at all 250 NICU cots across our city will get a big swag-bag full of gifts for themselves and for baby, too!

You can help buy items from anywhere in the world from our online gift-registry and they’ll go into the bags.
To donate a gift:
