Thanks to our good friends at Signature Little Ones, we were introduced to a wonderful cause called Great. Big. Tiny. Hearts (started by Deedee Crosland and Fabiana Bacchini, who have both experienced first hand the emotions of premature births)
Great Big Tiny Hearts recognizes the magnitude of strength families require in all aspects of their lives to care for their babies in the NICU. Our purpose is to provide support to aid, ease and connect parents so they can face an unimaginable situation with strength, optimism and gratitude.
This year they are donating 60 baskets to families who will be spending the holidays in the NICU at Mount Sinai Hospital. The baskets will have essential items and special little extras for parents, like: diapers, wipes, lotion, baby wash, burp cloths, hand sanitizer, lip balm, snack cups, and Tim Horton’s gift cards among many other generously donated items.
We were asked if we would like to contribute a special children’s art print for each basket, and we were honoured to be able to do so. We obtained permission to use the beautiful quote “I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always” from the Robert Munsch book “Love You Forever”, which was very fitting to the cause.
