One day... all babies will be born healthy.
Today... too many moms and families know the heartbreak of having a baby born fighting to survive.
Having the Muffins at 29 Weeks, 5 Days, which is 10 Weeks, 2 Days premature I am one of those moms that knows what it is like to watch her babies fight for their lives. That is something I do not wish on any other woman. It is truly the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
The money we raise for March for Babies will help:
- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects.
- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby.
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care.
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children.
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We've made our pledge - Will you help?
The March of Dimes uses your money wisely: 77% of every dollar supports research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And your funds are used to bring comfort and information to families whose baby was born too soon, or sick.
I have added a link to the top left sidebar that you can donate from.
There are also other ways you can help and here’s a few:
Talk to your employer about doing Blue Jeans for Babies! Set a Friday before our walk on Saturday, September 26, 2009 and each employer pays $5 to wear jeans that day and all proceeds go directly to March of Dimes. (Please contact me via email if you are interested and need more information or need me to coordinate it with your company!)
If you are planning on walking and would like a shirt for/from our Team, email me! Walk with us, show your support for March of Dimes!
The shirts come in two colors,
Where it says, Family Team, our shirts will say
The Cochran Crew.
Shirts come in sizes from Youth XS to Adult XXL.
We HAVE to place orders by September 1st to ensure they will arrive in time. All shirts must be paid in advance. You can either email me and I can send you a PayPal Invoice or you can mail me a check. The cost of the shirts are $10 for adults and $7 for children. Again, all proceeds will go directly to March of Dimes! We will meet up early the morning of the walk to pass them out or you can swing by before then, get some Baby Loving and pick up your shirts!
I’m also open to any and all Fundraising Suggestions/Ideas you have! Please let me know if you have some ideas or would like more info on how you can help!
