Mission: Welcome to Preemie Prints a 501(c)(3) non profit organization based in the Brazos Valley offering information, support, complimentary NICU or preemie photography, and preemie gift bags to families with babies born prematurely or with serious health issues who must be in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). In addition we offer complimentary photography to other families with children suffering from health conditions due to being born prematurely, babies or children suffering/recovering from childhood illnesses or diseases, babies born out of crisis or teenage pregnancies, babies and children recently adopted or those in foster care, and handicapped babies or children.
Results: We are a start up non profit and have spent our time in 2011 organizing the model, creating marketing materials to reach families, meeting with hospital staff, business partners, churches, and others. We are organizing two fundraisers. The first will be a pancake breakfast with the Easter Bunny where we will take pictures and have breakfast. The second will be a bar-b-q with silent auction and live music. We will have a variety of speakers and preemie families there to demonstrate that there is a need for our services.
