May - Misfits for a Cause - Little Misfits x The Linden Fund

Posted on 04 May 2015

Modern medicine has come a long way in the past decade or two. Regardless of the incredible treatments and new drugs however, preterm births are still very much a reality. Approximately 1 in 12 babies in Canada (almost 15%) are born preterm. 84% of those are born between 32 and 36 weeks of gestation. Around 10% are born between 28 and 31 weeks and 6% are born earlier than 28 weeks. Thankfully, with technological advancements, talented doctors, and the financial help of charities like the Linden Fund, those babies have a strong chance of survival even when they arrive as early as 24 weeks.

The Linden Fund is the voice of prematurity in Canada. They are “making a big difference in tiny lives”. They strive to offer hope, encouragement, and support to newborns, their families and the neonatal intensive care units serving them. Their purpose is to provide comfort and support to assist in the mental, physical, and emotional development of these at risk infants and their families. They became a registered charity to provide Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Units up-to-date equipment, and they do this by working directly with the NICU’s to assess their immediate needs.

Here at Little Misfits we have watched friends and family struggle through the early months of being parents to preemies, and all the heartaches and triumphs that time includes. For this reason, we chose to support the Linden Fund for the month of May. Please help us raise $1000 to support these tiny super heroes and their families by purchasing our limited edition Misfits for a Cause duds! Thank you!

 

You can also register for the Linden Fund’s Pedals4Preemies event if you’d like to fundraise and walk/ride with them on May 30th!
