Marvel Club’s Service Project

On Wednesday, March 6, a handful of students showed up to the Physics lab, their sleeves rolled up, and ready to work. Usually, students would enjoy spending their lunch time eating and talking with their friends; instead, nine students (and advisor Jordan Burkey!) chose to spend the hour folding cardboard boxes and baby swaddles.

This is it Network – women’s conference

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (OCEAN CASINO RESORT) — Kelly was honored to share her story of resilience, the power of giving back and the belief that adversity can actually be our asset. Being unapologetic and authentic will allow you to see with complete clarity your purpose and WHY -allowing you to show up for others in a new way.
When you understand that the lens others see you in isn’t yours to be concerned with, the ability to move forward is made easier

The Superhero Project Selected as Official Charity Partner

The Superhero Project was selected as the official charity sponsor of the Women’s Philadelphia Triathlon , organized by DELMO SPORTS. This Philadelphia women’s only event hosts strong competitors from across the country who show their grit and strength in this incredible yearly production This year for the first time, a kids event was featured. The Superhero Kids Splash & Dash featured kids, some of which were NICU graduates, who completed their own race the day before the women.

The smiles and giggles were obvious as these kids raced their hearts out. Racers who graduated from the NICU adorned a different color cap to let others know of their own journey as a superhero. Spectators cheered the kids on as they raced to the finish! We want to thank board member Joe Stampone and his law firm for sponsoring this incredible Philadelphia event.

Save the date for next year: July 9, 2023
We hope to see you there!

Monthly donations to support our mission

With the MLB All-Star game coming up on July 13, we thought now is a good time to start to put together our own Superhero All-Star Team.
I would like to invite you to join the new Superhero All-Star Team through your ongoing monthly support of our mission. These recurring monthly gifts allow us to continue our support of NICU families and extend our reach as we grow and impact more NICU families…one NICU at a time!

All of our All-Star team members will receive various perks when you join the team for as little as $10 each month.

Jefferson Hospital’s ICN Camera Project

I am inspired by the staff in hospitals like Jefferson who continue to put families first. Who, despite the already excessive demands placed on doctors and nurses to perform in stressful situations, make this commitment to strive for excellent family based care values and offer their families every option available to bond.

Huge Donation for Doylestown Health

Did you have a baby that had jaundice? Full term or NICU? If so, read on 🙂

We are proud to donate two of these incredible blanket/cocoons to Doylestown Hospital today with a $13,000 donation. Both of my boys would have benefited from this. Instead of sitting under the lights, they can be on your lap and in your arms… where they belong 🙂

One will be exclusively for the NiCU and one will be on the pediatric floor… many times babies from NiCu get discharged only to still have high levels- but once you leave the NicU you cannot be readmitted so you go right to Pediatrics.

We are affectionately calling this our Superhero Cape Program! Families will be able to bond with their baby while their infant is treated.

Always looking to make the family experience better for every mom and dad.❤️

We are blessed to have the support we do to be able to do so many incredible projects 🙂

a Beautiful day at chambersburg

Beautiful day at Chambersburg Hospital as they welcomed The Superhero Project into their hospital, making the commitment to change the lives of all their NICU families by getting Angel Eye Cameras installed.

Every time I do this, my heart bursts and my eyes get filled with tears knowing every person supporting my organization. It is ONLY because of you guys that these projects get put into fruition. I know that one day, when I get to sit Connor and Curran down, they will learn about how their lives have stemmed so much love and generosity from
Friends, family and strangers.

What a beautiful Easter it will be for families who have to leave their superhero in the hospital ❤️

High-Five Campaign

The Superhero Project would like to introduce the “High-5 Campaign”. Five Dollars in today’s world may not seem like a lot but to NICU Families it makes a drastic difference. Did you know that a Five Dollar Donation…

  • Can cover parking for a family to visit their Superhero
  • Can provide a coffee for Mom and Dad when they are sleep deprived
  • Can provide Mom with a new pair of Fuzzy socks to be cozy in post-partum.

We all been given / have given a “High-Five” and celebrated a special moment. Sometimes the simplest gestures make the biggest difference and feel the best.

Consider High-5 “ing” The Superhero Project today and making the day of a NICU Family with a 5-dollar donation.

Holy Redeemer NICU

In December, 2015, thanks to our generous donations, we were able to present the Holy Redeemer NICU with a check for $15,000 so that they could buy and install Angel Eye Cameras in their NICU beds. Angel Eye Camera Systems offers hospitals a secure, internet-based, video and audio solution that allows family and friends the ability to interact with hospitalized newborns at any time. On April 4th, 2016, the cameras went “live” and NICU families at Holy Redeemer could go home with some relief knowing that they could see their child online at any time!
