Kindness like Confetti plans to spoil a few Preemie babies for World Prematurity Day, and they are hoping to donate blankets, booties, beanies and teddies.


Johannesburg, South Africa (05 of October 2021) – World Prematurity Day is on the 17th of November each year, and it celebrates the tiniest fighters. A group called ‘Kindness like Confetti’ (KLC), based in Linden Gauteng, spreads kindness far and wide, and they are hoping to spread kindness amongst Preemies.

‘Kindness like Confetti’ has launched an initiative with Mini Miracles in celebration of World Prematurity Day. They are encouraging supporters who are handy with knitting needles to help them donate blankets, booties, beanies and teddies.

These items will go a long way towards providing warmth and comfort for premature babies. Teddies are often such a great source of comfort, that they become a lifelong treasure. The same can be said for home-knitted blankets.

“For World Preemie Day in November, we are asking for donations of baby wipes and baby soap as well as knitted and crocheted blankets, small toys, preemie-size beanies, booties and matinee jackets.”

So if you have some spare wool, a few hours and a giving heart, Kindness like Confetti needs you!

They are hoping to have all the donations in before the day. So if you are planning to knit something, the last day to send your donations is the 5th of November 2021. You can reach out via Facebook here for more information.
