View Full Version : Preemie Items Up for Grabs
10-16-2006, 05:19 PM
A while back someone on this thread did a group project for a class where she got everyone to knit preemie items and send them to her to donate. I had asked some knitting friends to join in--some of them I don't see often. We I recently got a load of stuff from one of the girls and I don't know what to do with it...the hospitals around here either already have a group doing it or they are so picky about the colors we use that some of the stuff is going to get thrown away. Is there anyone who collects this stuff that I can mail it to or anyone that has a suggestion as to where I can send it? There is a local chapter of NIN here but I tried working with them before and found the group to be very judgemental and not working at this for the right reasons. I'm sure it's not all NIN chapters that are like that but the one here (which stinks) really ticked me off.

I have donated to the NICU my daughter was in if you would like i can see if i can find the address for you or you can send them to me and i will take them to the hosptial. It is really upsetting that people and hosptial would give you a hard time when all you want to do is help.

It wasn't the people at the hospital--it was the Newborns In Need charity group that knits for the local hospitals. I actually have had someone PM me about what to do with them--I appreciate the offer--I am going to donate them to a girl scout troop and help them do a service project. :)

If you find that you still need an outlet for the preemie items, you can donate them to Threads of Love. http://www.threadsoflove.org/
