Little bits of comfort at a critical time.
Each year, about 10 to 15 percent of babies born in the U.S. are treated in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The reasons for treatment include premature birth, breathing problems, infections, and birth defects. Babies often spend months in the hospital, while parents and families stand a difficult, heart-wrenching vigil.
Life in the NICU can be confusing, frustrating, and at times unbearable. It’s a time when babies, parents, and families all need extra comfort and care. And that’s what Ella’s Halo is all about.
In 2010, Ella's Halo donated more than 700 baby blankets, 500 children's books, DVD players, CD players and other miscellaneous items to Twin Cities NICUs. Ella's Halo started their welcome bag campaign donating 300 welcome kits for families including a reusable bag, camera, toiletry kits, reusable water bottle, note books and pens. We are excited for even more ways that Ella's Halo can continue to help our friends in the NICU.
Ella’s Halo is a non-profit organization that was developed to help improve the quality of extended stays in Twin Cities Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). Our mission is carried out by providing a variety of items to NICUs, babies, and their families to help impart a better sense of home while in the hospital. Ella’s Halo accomplishes this through fundraising efforts, community events and educating the public about life in the NICU.
