NICU Donation

NICU Donation

In March this year we received a request from Julie, a mother of two prematurely born boys born at 26 weeks 9 years apart. Julie has been fundraising for March of Dimes for the past 5 years as Preemie Brothers. She also belongs to a NICU support group called Spark of Hope and this time Julie wanted to support her local NICU in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Julie reached out to us in regards to giving Lulla dolls to the Sanford Boekelheide NICU, which is where her youngest son was after he was born.

As many of you know Lulla was originally designed for preemies by Eyrún, the founder of RoRo. The idea of the doll was born when Eyrún's friend had her baby girl prematurely and had to leave her alone in the hospital every night for two weeks. That struck a chord with Eyrún and it was then that she decided to bring the Lulla doll to life. Since Lulla was designed for preemies, we find it very important that Lulla gets into as many NICUs as possible, in hope that the doll will help preemies all around the world. So of course we wanted to help Julie out.

In August, Julie brought 20 dolls to the Children's Castle in Sioux Falls, which were given in the name of Preemie Brothers. They also did a fundraiser at the same time and raised $200 to fund more dolls for the future. They plan on doing even more fundraising in the nearest future. We intend to partner with Preemie brothers as well in future projects and providing more Lulla dolls to families in the NICU.

We are so thankful to be able to be a partner in this project and look forward to working with Julie in the future! Where would the world be without angels like her!
