What started out as a small steak night put on by two moms (whose newborns lives were saved by the Saskatoon NICU team), has grown into a non-profit, non-funded charitable organization (Bloom in Support of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), organizing annual events to raise funds for the NICU. Each year, hundreds of babies are admitted to Saskatoon’s NICU for treatment, monitoring and lifesaving measures. As parents, relatives, and friends of babies who have required NICU care BloomNICU is an organization (run solely by volunteers) looking to make a positive impact on the future of patients and families in neonatal care. Since 2012 BloomNICU has developed an amazing community of supporters, sponsors, and donors who have made it possible to raise over $400,000 to date for neonatal care initiatives in Saskatchewan.
Donated since 2012
BloomNICU’s continued success depends on the added support of our local community through donations and sponsorship by providing in-kind services, financial donations or by providing cost-sharing opportunities or discounted rates.
We were expecting a baby for September 19, 2013, and instead, she decided to come at 23 weeks and 6 days. She weighed 1 lb and 7 ozs. I was ambulanced to Saskatoon as soon as my doctor figured out what was going on. They managed to hold it off to administer medication for her…
Our success is warranted to the tremendous support BloomNICU receives from local community through corporate sponsorship and from the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. A variety of sponsorship packages are available.
