Campaign running from Jul 14th (Abbie's 15th birthday) to July 31st. Please help Give Gifts of Hope!
for families in the CHOP NICU
Thank you for your donations!
Help us celebrate Abigail 15th birthday and honor her 54 days spent in the CHOP NICU to start her life by giving Gifts of Hope!
The Spreading Hope and Smiles Foundation is honored to be supporting a grassroots movement at the CHOP NICU to create the Hope for Families Fund, dedicated to providing support for families who find themselves thrust into NICU life. This fund will provide assistance for transportation, lodging, parking, meals, infant supplies and perhaps some Hope and Smiles.
There are currently 100 cribs in the CHOP NICU, and in an average year approximately 2200 babies occupy those cribs. The average stay in the NICU is 30 days and in those 30 days, between the commute, meals, lodging, parking, etc. a family could easily spend over $3000 to be with their baby. If we can alleviate just a speck of that stress for one family per day, perhaps we can give someone a smile or a glimmer of hope.
We cannot think of a better way to celebrate the 15 years of Abigail's amazing journey than to provide some comfort for other families starting their journey with their special new addition.
Please help us celebrate and give a Gift of Hope!
