DONATION: South Shore Hospital NeoNatal ICU

9 Nov

Wrapped Up in Sports donates 20 quilts to the South Shore Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

 

They are already in use and are the perfect size for the isolettes.
When the infant patients are ready to go home, they will go home with one of the quilts that helped to keep the light out and keep them warm.

ABOUT

At South Shore Hospital, our family-centered care is the primary reason why we’ve become the region’s number one choice for maternity care.

Family-centered care means honoring patient and family preferences. Our approach is built on five principles:

  1. Respect
  2. Information sharing
  3. Collaboration
  4. Family-to-family support
  5. Confidence building

When you combine our philosophy with our medical and nursing expertise and our partnerships with world-renowned academic medical centers, families experience an ideal blend of skill and compassion.

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Staff believes:

  • In caring for babies with tenderness and love.
  • That families are not visitors.
  • In promoting strong family bonds.
  • In working with parents so they develop confidence and skill to care for their babies in the hospital and at home.
  • In maintaining a warm and nurturing environment for families.
  • In providing the most advanced technology delivered by a skilled team of professionals.
  • In welcoming families to provide care and comfort for their babies.
  • In creating opportunities for mother/baby intimacy within the context of a high-tech environment.

EXHIBIT: 9/11 Peace Story Quilt

5 Nov

While in NYC for the September 11th 10 year anniversary memorial, Wrapped Up in Sports founder, Kate McCullough, came across the 9/11 Peace Story Quilt at the MET. We hope many of you get the chance to see exhibition.

9/11 Peace Story Quilt

August 30, 2011–January 22, 2012


The 9/11 Peace Story Quilt was designed by Faith Ringgold and constructed in collaboration with New York City students ages eight through nineteen. The quilt poignantly conveys the importance of communication across cultures and religions to achieve the goal of peace. Comprised of three panels, each with twelve squares on the theme of peace, the quilt will be displayed alongside several original works of art that inspired its content.

Faith Ringgold is well known for her story quilts: art that combines painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling. Her work has been exhibited in major museums around the world and can be found in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and The Museum of Modern Art, among others. In addition to writing and illustrating eleven children’s books, she has been the recipient of more than seventy-five awards, fellowships, citations, and honors, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Fellowship for painting, two National Endowment for the Arts Awards, and seventeen honorary doctorates.
