The Preemie ProjectBy Rachel Choi – 1 Comment
Looking to donate your crocheted items to a great cause? The Preemie Project is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization that was founded in 2005 to comfort premature and critically ill babies. Crochet and knit items such as hats, blankets, and booties are donated to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.
So far Preemie Project volunteers have donated 1,700 hat and bootie sets, 1,500 blankets, 300 bereavement packages, and counting! Here are some free crochet patterns on Crochet Spot that you can use to create items to donate to The Preemie Project and other wonderful organizations:
