According to the National Institutes of Health, 8%–10% of all pregnancies in the United States result in premature birth. Because they're at a higher risk for health problems due to their low weight and underdeveloped organs, these newborns must receive close medical supervision in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The Arc of Mecklenburg County's Noah's Arc program is a support group catering to families with infants in the NICU at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte.
Many families are not emotionally or financially prepared for weathering the ordeal of a baby's stay in the NICU. Noah's Arc provides them with meals and newborn essentials, as well as information and resources relating to the challenges and health risks facing infants born prematurely. Families also receive care packages prepared and distributed by The Arc. Each care package costs $20 to assemble and contains items such as baby mitts, a pack of diapers, an infant onesie, and two pacifiers.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help support the families of infants born prematurely. If G-Team members raise $300, then The Arc of Mecklenburg County can fund 15 care packages for families with premature babies. Each additional $20 raised will fund a care package for one baby.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
