Christmas/Winter Holiday Donation

We need your help to bring Holiday Cheer to Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Iowa.  Participating is simple.  Pick your favorite winter or Christmas holiday hat and/or bootie pattern. Items may be knit, crochet or sewn.

The Preemie Project donates festive hats and booties to help brighten up the holidays for the families.  We are talking Santas, Christmas tree hats, Grinch Hats, Elf Hats and more.  These special holiday donations have become very important events for the NICUs.  The nurses love dressing the babies up and taking pictures to surprise the parents.
