As a regular reader of our blog, you probably heard about our 23rd Anniversary Preemie Photo Contest. We received a lot of wonderful entries! First prize was $250 worth of preemie clothing donated to the NICU of the winner's choice. Recently we heard from Heather Pearson, our first place winner, as she shared how the giveaway experience went. Thanks for the wonderful news and photos Heather!
"Howdy! I wanted to update you guys on the photo contest first prize! I received the box of precious clothes last week and took them up to the NICU today. The nurses were all so excited as well as the unit director. They had informed the COO of the hospital that I was coming and why. He was there to meet me and was thrilled with his hospital's unit getting this wonderful donation.
We spent the afternoon labeling all of the outfits and gear and sent it to be laundered for the babies. Methodist Stone Oak Hospital was so thrilled they will be writing an article in their monthly newsletter & their Facebook page showing the beautiful donation and winning contest photos. They will be proudly mentioning how Perfectly Preemie has mightily impacted their unit and how grateful they are in having these beautiful pieces to dress their many NICU babies in as they come & go.
Thank you for all you do!"
