Our Mission

Heartstrings & Angel Wings is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity organization which provides clothing and other handmade items for babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units.  The items aid in comforting the babies and uplift the spirits of the baby's family members.

About Us

Heartstrings and Angel Wings was formed in honor of Heath Logan, a Breaux Bridge area premature baby related to some of our founding members.  Heath was born 16 weeks too soon and spent over 90 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Micro preemie clothing (clothing for babies under 5 pounds) is not readily available, and often hard to find and expensive.  Our goal is to provide clothing for premature babies in the NICU in order to relieve a little of the stress felt by parents in this situation and provide more comfort to the babies.

Our service provides comfort for the families because they can view their loved one in everyday clothing, making things seem at least a little more "normal."  Often, the conditions of the birth and coinciding hospitalization are unpredictable and chaotic, as well as overwhelming, so we hope to take a little stress off of the family and provide their baby with clothing because they probably have none.

The premature babies we provide clothing for range from 1 pound or less to 5 pounds in weight and most stay for weeks or months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Some of our donations made to hospitals - each of the ziplocs you see has at least one blanket and two shirts inside.  Some also contain a hat or two or extra shirts.  We also include one of our brochures.  :)

March of Dimes

We support the March of Dimes and their efforts to help premature babies and prevent premature delivery.  We participate in the March for Babies every May with our own team, and donate money and sponsor the event.  The money we donate comes from our fundraising efforts in March at the Gumbo Cookoff.  If you would like to join our team, please email us heartstrings_angelwings@yahoo.com

If you or someone you know is in need of clothing for their baby in the NICU, please contact us by email, heartstrings_angelwings@yahoo.com, or use the contact us form.
