Help Us Help Premature Babies and You Could Win a Prize!

Last year, we held a toy drive for the Pediatric Unit of Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) in honor of Mikey’s 6th birthday.  Thanks to the generosity of so many of our supporters, we were able to give $800 worth of toys to the children there!

this is only about half of the bags we made!

Although it hardly seems possible, in just a few weeks, Mikey will be turning 7!  As part of his birthday celebration this year, we would like to be able to donate funds to the TMH NICU Milk Warmer Project by holding a raffle in its honor.  As this particular project is to support premature babies, we felt it would be very appropriate to give away two handmade diaper cakes as prizes for the raffle!

Baby Boy Bear Cake (includes diapers, receiving blanket, bottle, bear and pacifier holder)

ABC Busy Little Bee Cake (includes diapers, receiving blanket, bottle, manicure set and bee washcloth puppet)

Tickets for the raffle are $1 apiece and for each dollar spent, you will receive an entry to the raffle for the cake of your choice. (Be sure to specify which cake you prefer when buying the tickets!)  The more tickets you buy, the greater chance you have of winning a prize!  The raffle will run for two weeks (ending on Sept. 22nd) and the two grand prize winners will be chosen randomly from our pool of entries, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Milk Warmer Project.

If you aren’t in the greater Tallahassee area, but would still like a chance to win one of our prizes, donations can be made securely online via PayPal.  (You do not need a PayPal account to participate, just click on the link and you will see an option to “buy” without an account).  Even if you are only able to purchase 1 ticket, every little bit counts and every entry will be greatly appreciated by us and by the babies who will benefit from this donation.

For those of you who may not be able to donate financially at this time, we will also be hosting a FREE giveaway where you can earn entries for this smaller prize by simply sharing the raffle information found on this blog with your friends!

baby “sub sandwich” (includes baby socks, washcloth, blankets and diapers)

I am a firm believer that helping to spread the word about important charitable opportunities is just as important as giving a donation and we want to reward those efforts as well.  So, make sure to tell your friends and then leave a comment on the blog or on our Facebook page telling us that you shared the information and we will add your name to the giveaway drawing!

For more information on the TMH NICU Milk Warmer Project, please read our previous post on this worthwhile cause!  Any further questions regarding the raffle?  Feel free to contact us at!

Thanks to everyone who is willing to once again help us make a charitable contribution in honor of Mikey’s 7th birthday!  We know we can make a difference WITH YOUR HELP!!! 🙂
