High Risk Hope supports over 2,000 families each year in the Tampa Bay area by providing Bed Rest Baskets and NICU Napsacks to families in crisis. You can now support these families by sponsoring a month of Bed Rest Baskets or NICU Napsacks in honor or in memory of a caregiver, a family member, or your preemie.
Sponsor a Month of Bed Rest Baskets – $500
Your sponsorship will provide 12 Bed Rest Baskets to a hospital of your choice in our network.
Many of the women admitted to the hospital on bed rest have gone in for a routine check-up only to be sent directly to the hospital. These women are not prepared for a long-term stay and find themselves in a very stressful situation. Each Bed Rest Basket includes essential items that would be included in their “hospital go bag”. Items include toiletries, adult washcloths, paper goods, eye mask, and ear plugs, Bed Rest Guide, a journal, a blanket and a calendar full of inspirational stories of families who have made the journey from hospital to home with a healthy baby.
Sponsor a Month of NICU Napsacks – $1,000
Your sponsorship will provide 40 NICU Napsacks to a hospital of your choice in our network.
The NICU can be a very scary place when you are not prepared to have a premature baby. Many families find themselves hearing unfamiliar words and expecting the worst case scenarios. Our NICU Napsacks offer families essential items that will help them during their stay. These items include a NICU Parent Handbook, basic toiletries, lotion, a journal, a calendar full of inspirational stories of families who have made the journey from hospital to home, and NICU Milestone cards that capture and celebrate the important moments in the NICU. NICU Napsacks also include books as part of HRH’s Books for Babies Program. Studies show that reading to a baby in the NICU aids in brain development and impacts speech and language development in the future. The books also offer a simple script so that the parents may begin to bond with their baby even though they may not be able to hold him/her.
You may elect to personalize the Bed Rest Baskets or NICU Napsacks you sponsor with a tag that will be placed on each bag that is delivered to patients and families. You will also receive recognition in our newsletters, annual report and on our website with a link to your corporate website if applicable.
