View Full Version : Heinz Labels
Hi to all the parents out there. As some of you are aware Heninz labels will give the IWK Hospital ( our childrens hospital ) 6 cents for each label from baby food, pablum, juice etc. I am asking on behalf of a member here ( i am sure there are others ) to please contact me for pick up of labels or at the very least save and send them in for this very worthy cause. We will also be doing some fundraising for the upcoming IWK Telethon in June...More info to follow..Thanks for listening. P>S> can any moderators please tell me if this is the right forum for this ?? Thanks Tish
Feel free to drop them off at the Forest hills convenience store...make sure they are well marked!!
anyone saving these...it is for a great cause...thank you

goal is to raise at least 1000 dollars,
I told the nurses last year at the NICU2
in IWK that I would be on this years telethon
with a check from Bastiann and my family.
Bastiann was born prematurly @31 weeks.
He also had a right side Diaphramatic Hernia.
His chances of surviving if he wasn't flown to
IWK that day were ZERO. SO he was flown!
Bastiann was a fighter from the start, he made the
doctors wait 3 weeks before he was stable enough
to have the life saving sugery. Sugery went excellent.
Dr Yancher is a pro at what she does! Bastiann came
home to Saint John Regional in July. He needed to grow.
There we found he had another hernia in his groin so he
was flown again to IWK. We will be returning soon to
correct another hernia, hopefully before telethon!
Now we are working to get through the cold and flu
season. He is back on oxygen for now but other than
that doing fine!! My family and friends will be fundraisng
around this city in all kinds of ways. We are hoping to raise
money in his name and present it back to the IWK as
a thank you..!!!
telethon is june2-3!!
watch for Bastiann!!

We just started our little girl on food, and any heinz labels we will save.
02-28-2007, 02:25 PM
I saved them and mailed them from both my babies (7 years diffenence between my kids). It may only be $6 from every label, but every penny counts and god forbid, if you (people in general) ever need to take you child(ren) to IWK, I'm sure you would want to make sure that they have the proper equipment and enough staff available.

yeah when i had my two other kids iwk was not on my mind because i didnt need it,,
when i had bastiann that place became my home...they gave us food,made sure we were stable,,(feelings,life,)
they take care of u as well as your children,
i have also decided that i will b raising enough money to get the neonatl here in saint john a new comphy chair...(they dont have many!! and i kno i spent hours in them)
thanks all who help!!
