Don't Forget to Shop Barnes & Noble this Week!!

Hi everyone! Just a reminder that you can shop at Barnes & Noble this week and help Melissa's Fund!

It's so easy. Print this voucher and take it to ANY Barnes and Noble. You can use it at any store because the barcode is specific to Melissa's Fund. When you check out, give it to the cashier and Melissa's Fund will get a percentage of the sales.

Our plan is to use the money we raise to purchase the book "On the Night You Were Born" for each baby who is in our NICU during the holidays. We were so lucky that Ann Catherine wasn't in the NICU during any major holidays. It's hard enough to be separated from your child while he or she is in the NICU, but during Christmas it can be especially tough. We hope giving parents this special book will make their holidays just a little brighter.

By the way, I bought this book after Lily was born and I absolutely LOVE it! We plan to put nameplates within each book to remind the parents that the books were a gift from Melissa's Fund. This could be so touching for parents years after their children are released from NICU.

So, please use this voucher this week and help us make the holidays brighter for our NICU families. It ends this Saturday, November 8th. I'm told you can't do it online - you must make your purchase in a store.

As always, thanks for your support of Melissa's Fund!!
