Hi, I'm not a mom to a preemie but I would like to donate blankets to a foundation for preemies or to a NICU. I like to sew so I'd like to make my own blankets. Are there any charities, foundations, or hospitals you can recommend that I can mail the blankets to? Thanks in advance :)

Sewcrafty, try asking the hospitals in your area what organizations they work with for this kind of thing. The NICU dd was in handed out hand-crocheted baby blankets, but I am pretty sure there was a non-profit involved that had taken recommendations on patterns, sizes, and kinds of yarn, and passed on only conforming items.

None of the hospitals here seem to have anything related to preemie blanket donations, however they do take breast milk donations. I may just have to do an internet search and see what comes up.
