NICU Ambassadors Support Parents After Premature Birth

As Graham’s Foundation grows, we’re always looking for new ways to connect with parents of preemies and the NICUs we serve. Part of how we connect with more NICUs and more parents who need support after premature birth is through our NICU Ambassador program. Our NICU Ambassadors are moms and dads of preemies, NICU staff members, and people whose lives have been touched by families coping with prematurity. They act as representatives of Graham’s Foundation in NICUs across the country so we have an opportunity to get to know the staff of local NICUs and they can get to know us.

Here’s a taste of the kind of tasks our NICU Ambassadors undertake on behalf of Graham’s Foundation:

  • Help us understand what both parents of preemies and the staff of local NICUs like about our care packages or would like to see in them by requesting and listening to their feedback.
  • Support local NICUs by accepting care package requests from the NICU director on behalf of Graham’s Foundation and helping us get more care packages into the hands of more preemie parents by delivering Pampers Miracle Mission boxes directly to NICUs.
  • Raise funds for Graham’s Foundation by coordinating local fundraising efforts, promoting our care package sponsorship program, and organizing or helping others organize care package sponsorship parties.
  • Help the people in their personal networks and the staff at local NICUs to collect their Pampers Points so they can pass these on to use as a donation to Graham’s Foundation via the Pampers Gifts to Grow Rewards program.

If you’ve never considered applying for a spot on our NICU Ambassador team, please think about it! We are in need of NICU Ambassadors in San Diego, Washington, D.C., and Dallas as well as any other city across the country. Anyone who cares about parents of preemies and wants to help us fulfill our mission at the local level is welcome to apply. Becoming a NICU Ambassador is easy, and serving as a NICU Ambassador can be a lot of fun and extremely rewarding.

Please follow this link and fill out our application. We’d love to have you on our team!

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder
