Our Top Projects
The Superhero Project is proud to announce our newest corporate partnership with Kindred Bravely.
This incredible company ackowledges the difference of our journeys as mothers yet common in being rooted in love and deserving of comfort.
CHOP SUPERHERO FUND
CHOP has also been the recipient of a 3 year $30,000 grant from us to help families virtually connect with their former NICU team when meeting with their pediatrician for the first time. The Superhero Project now has an official fund at CHOP that donors can elect to directly give back to support telemedicine. Look for more information on this soon!
This endeavor provides every family at Holy Redeemer hospital with a bag to leave home with that includes care items during their stay. It also provides new preemie clothes, hats, blankets and swaddles for families who are unable to afford them.
Increased Financial Support
The Superhero Project has also aided families in their time of financial struggle, for whatever is needed the most. In 2018, this includes paying for funeral expenses for a family who inquired as well as purchasing registry items and baby care packages to help aide in NICU discharge. We have also provided travel expenses from an out of state family from CHOP.
The Superhero Project Annual Calendar Fundraiser
Each year we put together a calendar to showcase the awesome children that survived the NICU. The theme changes from year to year, as well as the calendar kiddos. Stay tuned for some amazing photos taken by the wonderful Rae Hearts Design & Photography

PJs and a Smile
Campaign at UPenn hospital, thanks to the amazing idea and excitement of Bridget McKinney. This initiative provides every NICU mother with a set of fresh PJS, a flower and a card from a former NICU mom. The encouragement to rest and take care of yourself will assist in the physical and mental recovery needed while caring for a sick newborn. We have commitments with several big companies to help bring this gift to families.

Dylan was born 3/23/18 through an emergency C-Section. I don’t remember much from that day besides the fact that my son would be transferred to CHOP...
This Mother's Day The Superhero Project Inc. and some incredible NICU dads take a moment to honor the special women in their lives. Happy Mother's...
