Can You Donate Any Of These Items To CDH Families?

Our charity needs the following items for a project that we are putting together. Perhaps you or your company have some items that you can donate for a good cause.

We are collecting items for families of babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, a severe and often deadly birth defect. You can visit our site, for more information about CDH. The items we are collecting will be used in care package for these families, to help ease their hospital stays. All donations are tax-deductible. We can come pick up local items in the Raleigh / Durham area. Because of the delicate health of these babies, we must ask that donations be new and from smoke-free and pet-free locations.

ANY donation at all, greatly appreciated!!!
