We were blown away by the enthusiastic response and participation of hundreds of nurses this week! Then again, it’s no surprise that nurses would want to spend their week helping others. We’re so honored to be able to work with such a wonderful profession. That is why we have decided to make a donation to not one, but all three organizations!
To honor as many nurses as possible we will be making a donation to NICU Families NW, NCCS, and the Wishbone Foundation!
Are you interested to know which charity received the most votes? That would be NICU Families Northwest!
NICU Families NW exemplifies the values that nurses believe in. They provide emotional and social support to NICU families in the Pacific Northwest. It can be hard to understand what parents go through when they have a premature or complicated birth that results in a hospital stay, but our NICU nurses often get to experience it first hand. NICU Families NW helps create a positive environment for families both online and in person. They have a peer-to-peer network where families can connect and share their experiences in order to heal. They also give families care packages and children books free of charge to combat feelings of isolation and promote parent-baby bonding.
Thanks for your participation and happy Nurses Week!
