Congratulations everyone!
     With everyone putting their best foot forward and donating to the cause, Counting Z's was able to provide over 40 Zaky's to UNC Children's Hospital NICU!  Since the hospital already had 6 or 7, we can proudly say that each and every one of the 50 beds in the unit will have it's own Zaky for every infant that needs the comfort and care.  We couldn't have done it without you!  And a special thanks to the Zakeez Inc. for their amazing "donate to a NICU and we will match your donation."  Without them we couldn't have reached our goal.  We are so blessed to have all your support and are striving to keep pushing forward and providing every NICU that we can with these wonderful creations.  God bless each of you and thank you for your donations.  They will go a long way in helping these beautiful bundles that are fighting for their lives!

In memory of Avery Elizabeth Blum, we are collecting donations for the UNC Children's Hospital NICU. The NICU has wonderful comfort aids for the preemies that help them stay calm and comfortable. Two of the most important aids are Zakys and Z-Flo's. Unfortunately, they are in short supply. The NICU has 50 beds available and only a third of these wonderful creations to go around.  The Zaky company also runs a program that will match any donations made to hospitals.  So however many Zaky's we can donate, they will send double the amount!  If anyone would like to make a donation in Avery's name, you can send donations made out to Avery's Memorial Fund to 300 South Harding Drive Apt G Goldsboro, NC 27534. Thank you all for the support you provided to us during this difficult journey. We are all so blessed to have so many wonderful people involved and were grateful for the time we got to spend with Avery. God Bless!
