Project Sweet Peas brought me hope when my 25 weeker twins were in the NICU for nearly 4 months. I'm so grateful to have found them. The NICU can be a very lonely place and it helps knowing there are others out there who care and understand first hand what it's like to have little ones in the NICU.

We received a package from project Sweet Peas while we were in the NICU with our 3 month premature baby. The package contained so many helpful things during our stay. The support this organization provides to parents and children in the NICU is so helpful and comforting. This is a world class organization providing a much needed service.

After suffering the loss of 3 pregnancies, I heard about Project Sweet Peas. The support from others who have been through similar losses was a monumental help to me. Now I have 3 angels and 3 rambunctious littles and about 3 years ago I decided I wanted to help others feel the support and love that I had received. I now run the Texas division and am working To grow the hospitals supporting a regular basis along with special requests. All the divisions of PSP are run loving and huge hearted people with a goal of supporting other families.

My son and daughter-in-law received a care package from Project Sweet Peas. It was such an uplifting moment when they were opening the package at a time when my grandson was fighting for his life. It was so wonderful to see the happiness it brought to them. What a wonderful thing that Project Sweet Peas does for families that are in the NICU's across the US.

My son spent 8 weeks in the NICU before coming home and I know first hand how difficult the journey can be. Volunteering with Project Sweet Peas allows me to reach out to those families that are where I once was and let them know that they are not alone. It's amazing how even the smallest gesture of kindness can provide immeasurable hope. Everyone that donates their time to Project Sweet Peas puts their whole heart in to supporting families and I'm grateful to be a part of that.

As a mother who suffered multiple pregnancy losses and had a son who spent six weeks in the NICU I know how difficult it is for grieving parents and those spending long hours in the NICU. Project Sweet Peas supports parents in so many ways by providing NICU care packages, memory boxes, and holds events to fundraise and raise awareness.

So grateful for Project Sweet Peas! As a parent of preemies, it's an amazing feeling to volunteer for an organization that provides support and love to families like mine. Project Sweet Peas provides care packages, memory boxes, financial support, gift cards (among many other things) to families with a baby in the NICU or those who have experienced loss. Love being part of the Project Sweet Peas family!

My son Braelyn was born 16 weeks early weighing 1 lb 3 oz. He spent 4 months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He is now 3 years old and doing great. During our stay, we had many people and organizations that helped us along our way. I knew the that we wanted to do something to help others. We opened up a local chapter with Project Sweet Peas. Project Sweet Peas supports families with premature & critically ill infants spending time in the NICU. It has became a passion of ours to help families during some of their most uncertain days. We supply care packages, holiday gifts, bearavment support, & financial support. Once you have experienced a NICU stay, you realize that the true hero's are the ones that were born into this world fighting for each breath they take. This organization is very important to me and it allows us to be able to support many families. The smallest things mean so much.

After my first two children died, I was given handmade memory boxes by a local chapter of Project Sweet Peas. I knew from that instant that I needed to give back, that I needed to help other families going through the hell we had been through. This year, my husband and I started the #RoarkChallenge. We challenged our community to raise $500. For every dollar (up to $500), my husband and I would match the gift. Plus, through my companies charitable giving program for every dollar we donated, they would match it! Through our collective efforts, every $1 donated by the community then became $3! Within 3 weeks we exceeded our goal and will be able to provide somewhere around 80 memories boxes to local families in need.
