Tommee Tippee on a mission to support little Miracles

In honour of World Prematurity Day (Sunday, 17th November), Tommee Tippee wants to help support families of premature and sick newborns and is on a mission to raise $20,000 for Miracle Babies over November.

Little Miracles like Piper was born at just 24 weeks (16 weeks early). She weighed a tiny 653 grams and spent 140 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. For mum, Hayley the experience was filled with feelings of powerlessness and uncertainty.

After many ups and downs, Piper was finally discharged from hospital, and able to go home with her family. Now, two years later, Piper is a healthy and happy 2-year-old. Those first years can be difficult for many, navigating the foreign NICU environment and adjusting to life with a baby who arrived into the world not as expected, it affects the entire family unit.

"Piper is doing awesome, better than I expected. I thought that this year we would be in and out of hospital, but Piper is a little trooper and is determined to let nothing get in her way," says Hayley Buhagiar.

For families just like Piper's, the experience can be life-changing and without support, many do not cope. By making a small donation, you could make a big difference. Just $67 could help one more family get support and their premature or sick baby reach their full potential.

Tommee Tippee wants to help more little ones like Piper by encouraging people to open their wallets to ‘tip in’ to help support families of premature and sick newborns. Hopefully with the $20,000 raised for Miracle Babies, we can offer 300 more families access to our NurtureProgram, which includes: 24-hour helpline, in-hospital peer-to-peer support, out of hospital play and support groups, emergency care packs and NICU Survival Packs along with other resources for families and the hospitals that care for them.

Vanessa Gonzalez, Marketing Manager at Tommee Tippee says, "To see little ones grow happy and healthy like Piper just cements for us at Tommee Tippee the importance of supporting organisations like The Miracle Babies Foundation. We would like to encourage everybody to tip in this World Prematurity Day to help those who have experienced having a premature little one, through personalised support and relationships."

"For families challenged with a premature or sick baby, the experience can be life changing. We are grateful for the amazing support of Tommee Tippee. The partnership will certainly go a long way in helping us touch the lives of more families in Australia in need of our support,"  says Kylie Pussell, Miracle Babies Foundation CEO and Co-Founder.

The campaign will run from now until the 17th of November and anyone can lend their support and make a donation any time via tommee-tippee-tip-in.raisely.com with all funds going directly to Miracle Babies Foundation.
