I woke up this morning in absolute and complete shock - you all are AMAZING this was something thought we would have taken months to accomplish, in a little over 12 hours we have collected 200 blankets from the registry and many more coming in from donations! I honestly don't even know what to say! Because of the overwhelming response we are now collecting have added premie and newborn clothing to our wish list (Onsies are awesome, and things that snap so that cords can come out between the holes of the snap)! We are again collecting new or gently used clothing because these items can be washed by the NICU and will stay with the NICU. I have also added items to the Target wish list (which site wide has not been working this morning) and I created a wish list on carters.com to make it easier to see what we are looking for, or where you can purchase an item and have it sent to the Roseville, MN location and we will pick up (shipping is free to stores)! Carters frequently has great sales so if it is not on sale right now plenty of time to wait and save some money!
The link for the Target wish list can be found in the previous post!
The Seize Your Joy committee is meeting Friday night and after which we will begin contacting those who have reached out with donations for pick ups!
Again, thank you so much for your jaw dropping response (guess I am going to have to come up with a new Big Joy for July!), you are all amazing and are going to bring so much joy to the NICU which is many times a very scary place
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU - there are no words adequate, and I am can just see Charlotte doing a HUGE Happy Dance up in Heaven right now
