We are delighted to be part of the Irish Breeze "The great bottom campaign" along with Bliss the premature baby charity in the UK. For every ten likes their facebook page gets, both charities recieve a pack of water wipes. We will distribute them at our meet & greet sessions and use them for our Tots and treats campaign at Christmas.

Supporting the charities Bliss and Irish Premature Babies.We want every baby to have a the best start in life. This is why WaterWipes is proud to be supporting the charities Bliss and Irish Premature Babies. Bliss is the special care baby charity that provides vital support and care to premature and sick babies across the UK. They offer guidance and information at a critical time in families’ lives. Bliss also fund research, and campaign for babies to receive the best possible level of care regardless of when and where they are born.

Irish Premature Babies is Ireland’s national charity that supports the families of premature and ill term babies. They are a voluntary charity run by a team of dedicated parents of premature babies. They provide information, practical, financial and emotional assistance for families in need. They also fundraise to buy equipment for Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units and Special Care Baby Units.

As part of The Great Bottom Campaign, we’ll donate a pack of WaterWipes to Bliss and a pack to Irish Premature Babies, for every 10 people who ‘LIKE’ Irish Breeze on Facebook. Added to this, we are also supporting the BLISS PARENT PACK, ensuring that their good work continues. Remember, every LIKE makes a difference.

 Why Irish Breeze want to help Bliss and Irish Premature Babies

 We want to help Bliss for the simple reason that they put family centred care at the heart of their approach – helping to give premature babies the best possible start in life, by supporting the whole family. It is this holistic approach to care that made Bliss really stand out for us and why we are supporting the Bliss Parent Pack and donating a pack of WaterWipes for every 10 people that LIKE us on Facebook.

We want to help Irish Premature Babies as they do tremendous work as a voluntary charity founded by a parent of premature babies and now run by parents of premature babies. They are extremely dedicated in the support they provide for the families of premature and ill term babies and also in how they campaign to increase awareness of prematurity and highlight the problems faced by these babies and their families.
