FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Fairfield County-based Tiny Miracles Foundation celebrated World Prematurity Day recently with an exhibit called "Artwork Born Ahead of Its Time," created by local preemies, at the Westport Arts Center.
During this event, over $5,000 was raised to support the foundation.
The event was also sponsored Jerry’s Artarama of Norwalk, Garelick & Herbs, D&D Linen of West Haven, Bar Taco of Norwalk, Cobbs Mill Inn of Weston, Black Cat Grille of Redding and Character Arts of Wilton.
The Tiny Miracles Foundation assists over 1,000 families per year throughout Fairfield County through programs at four partner hospitals in Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport and Danbury, and services to the community at large.
These services are delivered by more than 100 volunteers and a small support staff. Support is provided by TTMF volunteers who have personally experienced the premature birth of a baby, the complications that arise, the challenges families face and, in sad cases, the loss of a prematurely born child.
The Tiny Miracles Foundation is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization that provides emotional support, practical assistance, supplies and information to parents of children born prematurely.
The foundation is also made up of parents of preemies who came together. Throughout the process of their growing babies, they learned how to measure the progress of their young ones.
