ABOUT GIVE DAY TAMPA BAY
Give Day Tampa Bay is a one-day online giving challenge on May 5, 2015 led by the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay and the Florida Next Foundation to raise support for local nonprofits and grow philanthropy in our region. It is a community-wide event to show off Tampa Bay’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort of our region. The inaugural Give Day Tampa Bay in 2014 raised $1.1 million, and HRH raised $15,820 and placed 5th in overall donors out of 384 nonprofits spanning 4 counties! With help from our HRH supporters, Hyde Park Village and the $10,000 matching pledge, this year HRH will be even more successful.
ABOUT HIGH RISK HOPE
High Risk Hope, located in Tampa, Florida, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed on February 16, 2011 to provide support, encouragement, information and resources to women and families who are experiencing a high risk pregnancy resulting in hospital bed rest, potential premature birth and neonatal intensive care after delivery. HRH is the only local or national organization providing these services to women on long-term hospital bed rest and premature infants in the NICU. HRH reaches over 1,200 patients annually, and 2,600 total since 2011, at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital and Tampa General Hospital, where babies are born healthier and their families’ hospital stays are more manageable because of HRH’s services.
Nearly 500,000 babies are born prematurely in the United States each year and 9,000 babies die as a result of their premature birth. With a 2013 premature birth rate of almost 14%, Florida is one of the worst states in the nation in terms of premature birth prevention. Each day a woman on hospital bed rest is able to remain pregnant is a miracle and decreases her baby’s NICU stay by an estimated three days. Lengthening pregnancies at risk for pre-term delivery results in healthier babies. High Risk Hope is a catalyst in the global fight to end premature birth; winning a life-long victory with every baby helped.
