So, for every 10 gift boxes we sell, we will donate a gift box to a family going through the journey, to try and make their lives just a little easier.  My NICU journey was all consuming both physically and mentally and that, for me, meant that I didn't want to leave my babies' cot sides for long.  So, not finding the nappies and clothes I needed for...
