Neonatal Secret SantaChristmas day is a day for families to get together, be together and make memories. For hundreds of families this Christmas, their memories will be different to most.

Through buying in bulk and also with the generous help of supporters we can provide a special pack to neonatal families – but we need your help to make this support happen. There are 355 incubators and cots in neonatal units across New Zealand. While the unit is the best place for the care of their baby (or babies, in the case of multiples) they would love to be home at this time. We want to provide a Christmas package to each and every family with a baby in a neonatal unit to brighten their day. 

We have set up a special page where you can make a secure online donation to The Little Miracles Trust and also leave your message of support. A text entry field has been provided on this page for people to leave a message of support that will be hand written into a card by a Trust volunteer.
