Sponsor a memory box or NICU care package
You can sponsor a memory box for $50 in honor of a baby. This is our cost for putting together each donation with all of the included items. For each donation sponsored, we will include a special card in that memory box or NICU care package with the baby’s name in which the item was sponsored. To do this, please see our Monetary Donation Page to see how to make donations online or by mail. Please be sure to include the baby’s name with the donation. One memory box or NICU care package will be sponsored for each $50 donation.
