More than 200 WA babies spent their first Christmas in a neonatal unit this year. Some learning to feed and growing just a little bit more, others in the fight of their life. It's a very emotional time on a day that is all about family.
We put a call out as we do annually to our volunteers to help brighten Christmas in neonatal units all over the state. It was wonderful to see such beautiful quilts donated for our families.
This Christmas we distributed in excess of 300 quilts and more than 200 'Baby's First Christmas' ornaments. The ornaments were donated by a local, family run business, Foote & Flame. The quilts and ornaments went out to 26 hospitals around Western Australia.
We know these small gifts make the world of difference to our families during the holiday period. To all of our sewers we can't thank you enough for your continued efforts!
From the Board and members of Tiny Sparks WA we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
