Fathers day is a special day for many. For hundreds of families on Sunday 1st September, their memories will be different to most.
There are over 360 incubators and cots in neonatal units across New Zealand. While the unit is the best place for the care of their baby (or babies, in the case of multiples) they would love to be home on Fathers day.
We have organised a pick-me-up package for each and every family with a baby in a neonatal unit to brighten their day.
Our huge thanks to . . .
This support would not have been possible without the generous support of a number of organisations and people.
Our HUGE thanks goes to all those who made this happen:

Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers for the Peanut Slabs
Bauer Media NZ for the magazines
The Body Shop for the samples in the packs
RJ’s Licorice for their yummy NEW licorice choc bullets
