Put Your Hand Up For Miracles

I had the privilege of meeting Melinda Cruz some years back, at the Earnst and Young Entrepreneurial Awards, for which she was nominated - and deservedly won - the award for Social Entrepreneur of the Year. 

Soon after she asked me to be an Ambassador for her foundation, Miracle Babies - a request that I was honoured to receive and happily agreed to.


Since its inception in 2005, Miracle Babies Foundation has become Australia’s leading organisation supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them. 


Every year in Australia around 45,000 newborn babies require the help of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). 25,000 of these babies are born premature and up to 1000 babies lose their fight for life.


With more than 15% of all babies born premature or sick, chances are you are one, you’ve had one or you know one.
The heartbreaking experience affects the entire family unit and the effects remain long after going home… the comforting news is that, working with health professionals, Miracle Babies is there throughout the entire journey from a threatened pregnancy, the time in hospital and the transition to home.
Here's how you can help...

Firstly, you can support my Everyday Hero fundraising page to help me achieve my goal of raising $1000 for the Miracle Babies Foundation.
