These items will help keep neonatal babies warm and also provide a pick-me-up for families who are going through the stress and anxiety of a neonatal journey.  This is another example of The Neonatal Trust helping to support neonatal families.

Points for Purpose Stuff article imageIn the news

As part of the launch of Points for Purpose, the gifting of a new blanket was covered by Stuff.co.nz. This covered the gifting of a 100% wool Swanndri blanket to Mum Brittany Hepi. Brittanys daughter Tiare O'Sullivan-Heemi was born 14 weeks early, weighing just 985 grams - only just bigger than her mother's hand. .

Hepi was hugely appreciative of Points for Purpose and said it helped charities like The Neonatal Trust make life a little bit easier for families. 
"They are amazing. It's a really hard and emotional time. They know what you are going through and know what help and support you need." She had travelled from her home in Upper Hutt into Wellington and later to the Hutt neonatal unit every day to be with Tiare and found the process exhausting.
