Thanks to Pierce's Project, you can support preemies in the Charlotte area!
Pierce's Project was founded in order to help support families of premature or chronically ill infants before, during and after their NICU stay. This year, they are supporting parents of preemies by offering professional counseling, along with the many other services they normally offer.
Why do I care? I'm not just a photographer... First, I was a nurse. Then I was a NICU nurse! Working with NICU babies and preemies is what I love! These little ones are so sweet, innocent, and need all the help they can get.
In 2016, I partnered with Pierce's Project to bring portraits to families with babies in a local neonatal intensive care. This service gives parents some sense of normalcy during a very stressful time. Even though a stay in the NICU may not be an expected outcome, they can make memories of their family together in their new environment.
Spending any amount of time in the neonatal intensive care nursery can be an extremely challenging time with many ups and downs. The financial burden of a NICU stay can be overwhelming, and the emotional toll can be just as devastating. Please join me in loving and supporting the population that I hold close to my heart!
My goal this year is $1000 and all funds raised will go straight to Pierce's Project to support families of preemies in the Charlotte area! Let's show these families how a little can go a long way!
