The calendar was produced by Moms of premature babies who were cared for at a special care unit, and the proceeds will go to a preemie treatment centre in Kent, England.
Preemature baby equipment is extremely expensive, and officials say that more government funding is needed for research and equipment.
I have to say, I was drawn to this story in part because of Stephanie Klein's tender, touching story about her own premature babies in her blog. I know I've profiled her already in the last month, but that entry taught me more than I ever realized about babies who are born a little before they're ready.
If I lived in England I'd be buying one of these calendars.
