March of Dimes March for Babies

On May 8th (6 days after she turns 1!), Sweet P and I will be walking in the March of Dimes March for Babies in Des Moines. I am really excited about the walk and getting involved in this cause. Because of the love and support of my awesome family and friends, Sweet P and I have raised $555 dollars for our team!

How can you help? By clicking on the widget to the right...see it? Yep, right there, on the right. Why should you donate? Well, for starters because it's a great cause and it's raising money so that "one day all babies will be born healthy." Wouldn't that be a marvelous thing? If you're still not convinced (if you're thinking, well, where does that money go?), here are a few things that March of Dimes has done for our wee ones.

You can thank March of Dimes if you:
  • Took folic acid during pregnancy to prevent brain and spinal cord birth defects
  • Your baby was born early and spent time in NICU (neonatal intensive care unit)
  • You had a healthy baby due to good prenatal care
  • Your baby was screened to test for dangerous, but treatable conditions
  • Your baby received the polio vaccine
Even if you didn't have a premature birth or complications, perhaps you know someone who has. Help continue the mission to give every baby a fighting chance. Donate.
