Help Us Bring Holiday Cheer to the NICU
Now that the pumpkin donation is over, our 5th annual winter holidays donation is fast approaching! That’s right, for the 5th year in a row, TPP is bringing holiday cheer to the families at the UIHC NICU and PICU with silly, cutesie hats for the babes. Simply use red, green and white yarn to make Christmas/holiday hats and matching booties.
Some examples from years past:

This donation is a favorite of the nurses and families. The nurses take pictures of the babes and make cards for the families. We’re talking crazy amounts of cuteness! We hope you will consider helping us bring cheer to the NICU this holiday season!
As always, it’s all for the babies.
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
