Blank NICU Families coming together to form Average Everyday Miracles.
We want to purchase a Giraffe Bed for the Blank NICU.
They are officially called Giraffe Omnibed Carestations, and they are used for babies born at 29 weeks of age or younger. Giraffe Beds continually stabilize temperature while providing an easy workflow for care providers, noise and light monitoring, family-centered care, and excellent infection prevention. Infants will receive all their care in this bed for the first 72 hours of life or longer. The goal for the NICU is to use them with micro-preemies and critically-ill infants from the delivery room to their NICU room in order to prevent intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH - bleeding in the brain) and other complications. The bed acts like a mother’s womb to further stabilize the baby and promote growth and development.
They sound amazing, right? We agree! The trouble is that Blank only has nine of these beds and they want to eventually get 25 Giraffe Beds so they can better serve NICU patients. But the real kicker is that Giraffe Beds cost $36,000!
And that’s where we come in. Average Everyday Miracles is committed to raising $36,000 to purchase a Giraffe Bed in honor of all the Blank NICU miracles in our lives and all the miracles yet to join our group.
We need your help to meet this goal. Here are three easy ways to help us reach our goal:

In honor of Sophia’s first birthday, we are hosting a fundraiser to help Average Everyday Miracles buy a Giraffe Bed for the Blank NICU. A Giraffee Bed is designed to better serve the needs of micro-premies and critically-ill infants.
Our goal is to raise $500 for this cause, and every little bit helps. To donate you can send a contribution to me at <<venmo/payment details>> or donate directly to Average Everyday Miracles.
The doctors and nurses at Blank NICU took such good care of our little girl, and we’re so grateful to be able to give back to them in this way. Thank you for supporting Sophia, and we hope your help us hit our goal of raising $500 for the Blank NICU.
