I'm going to start gathering for this December again soon, I just wanted to say a couple things really quick:

On Oct 5th David's Nightlights became an official registered nonprofit, and I want to thank everyone who has supported this in any way over the past three years. This has been really important to me to do and it constantly amazes me that other people care about making it a success as well, thank you if you've ever donated, shared, or helped with this in any way, and special thanks for those of you who have consistently done things to help this project get where it is today, whether it's helping to build it, give business advice, regularly donating items, making graphics; I will never forget and you will always have a special place in my heart.

So please keep an eye out for more info about this season's giving on Facebook and instagram (@davidsnightlights)!
That amazing Alora!!! :hug Are you set up to be able to receive money from Amazon Smile? If so, I'll switch my charity to David's Nightlights.

That's something I have thought about but it's all pretty fresh (I got the email confirming it earlier this week 😂) so there's a few things I need to do before I can sign up for that, but I'll def let you know!!!!

Congratulations! Yes, if you let me know I'll do Amazon Smile for you too.

I will be lighting my candle for David and the unnamed baby I lost too. I just set my alarm. Thank you for always remembering.

Thank you Jo ❤️❤️❤️❤️

@Polegnyn Nemeara if you still want to make hats/octopi (octopi would be awesome) now that I'm official I want to expand from just delivering to the hospital to also sending out kits by request, and those I can add handmade items to (as long as they comply with the guidelines for hospitals) I would love to be able to send those things out 🙌

It's a little less than a month until the delivery, we can make about 20 incomplete bags as things stand now so if you know anyone who would like to contribute please share this link with them:

Thank you for the reminder. I need to remember to contribute something when I get paid on Friday. Why not ask my parents to contribute something as well, since I was a NICU baby they have a soft spot for the extra small tykes.

Thanks Idine and extra big hugs for you 🧡🧡 🥰

So many of us have known someone that has had the NICU in their lives in some way, it's one of those things that doesn't get talked about that much but seems to be more common than we thought 🧡

Thank you. :hug

Yup, I was a preemie and in the NICU with my mom for almost two months. They tell me stories about feeding me with a feeding tube and how the diapers were too big, etc. I was also born on Christmas so it would have been so special for my parents to have had something like this. When I have the spoons I want to make a Facebook post to share with more people to try and get them involved.

We're getting closer to the delivery date, there are still a few things on the wishlist to complete the bags and as long as they are here by 12/19 they can still make it in!

Alternatively, we are gathering funds to buy lunch for the NICU staff (~100 people) the day of the delivery, you can find that fundraiser here: https://paypal.com/donate/?campaign_id=9W5A6Y86Y6AQN&source=url

Also if you have donated to our cause whether this year, or previous years, can you please spare a moment to send us an email with the following:
-Why you feel called to donate to our cause
-Your personal story if you feel comfortable
-What your favorite item in the gift bags and why
-If we can use your name and statement in a post, or just your statement
-Any pics you want to share of your preemie, yourself, etc

to the following email: Marketing@davidsnightlights.com

We want to feature donators and people who receive our gift bags in our social media and show the impact a project like this has on those who give and receive.

Thank you and if you have any questions please reach out to us!

Awesome idea! I still need to send that money for the nurses’ meals, it’s been a crazy week.
