Tip In for Miracles like Hadrian's in honour of World Prematurity Day.
Every year in Australia, 48,000 babies are born requiring the specialised care of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). Of these, 27,000 are born premature and up to 1,000 babies will sadly lose their fight for life.
Hadrian was born at 26 weeks, weighing just 540 grams and spent 104 days under specialised care. Read the full story here.
How you can help:
1. Make a donation: $143 provides support to one family like Hadrian's throughout their overwhelming and difficult hospital journey.
2. Create your 'Tip In' Fundraising Page: In honour of the miracle in your life, help us spread the word and create a personal fundraising page dedicated to your baby or a miracle close to your heart, and ask your family, friends and colleagues to join you in supporting the cause.
Having a baby born not as expected can be life-changing and it affects the entire family. Babies can go on to face lifelong challenges including disabilities, developmental delays or behavioural issues and parents are 2.5 times more likely to develop post-natal depression.
In honour of World Prematurity Day, 17th November, a global day to raise awareness of the challenges associated with prematurity, Tommee Tippee are asking the community to 'Tip In' to support miracles and their families. Funds raised will go toward the Miracle Babies NurtureProgram, peer support services and resources to families experiencing the birth of a baby born premature or critically ill.
Help families like Hadrian's and join Tommee Tippee to make a difference to the lives of thousands of families across Australia.
