Hand to Hold Kicks Off Its Giving Day Challenge!


Today, September 3, Hand to Hold kicks off its 24 hour Giving Day Challenge! Next month Hand to Hold celebrates its 5th birthday, and we couldn’t do it without the support of all of you who follow us on social media, visit the Hand to Hold and Preemie Babies 101 websites, meet with our Family Support Navigators in the hospitals, and attend our events. And we couldn’t provide these free resources without funding. That’s where our Giving Day Challenge comes in!

We’re asking friends and followers of the NICU community to support Hand to Hold’s mission by making a donation during our Giving Day Challenge. Make a one-time gift or sign up to give monthly, and Andra Liemandt and The Mrs. will match your gift up to $25,000!

But there’s more! For the first 250 donors who commit to donating $5/month or make a one-time gift of $35 or more, The Boppy Company, LLC will donate a hospital-grade Boppy® HealthcarePillow and a carton of Boppy® Disposable Slipcovers to a NICU in need.

Hand to Hold strives to provide comprehensive navigation resources and support programs to parents of preemies, babies born with special health care needs, and those who have experienced a loss due to these or other complications. Parents benefit from the knowledge and support provided from Hand to Hold’s network of families, Family Support Navigators, volunteers, and resources. Make your pledge today to ensure that all babies reach their full potential!

To donate, visit our Giving Day Challenge here! Hand to Hold and the NICU families we support appreciate the generosity of this amazing community.
