What it is
The March of Dimes has a March for Babies every spring, a fund-raising walk to benefit the “programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies” as well as fund “research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.” I personally join the team I first started with years ago when I worked there, at Lafayette Community Bank in Lafayette, Indiana.
“Your gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
Why I do it
For me, it started as a way to spend time with coworkers I liked and do a good deed; it has become a way for me to show how much I care about the health of mothers and babies everywhere. Well, and do a good deed. I want to help others and donate more than just money. Raising money by getting my friends, family, and coworkers to donate and taking the time to show my support is as beneficial to me as to the March for Babies.
I was very blessed in my pregnancy and birth. I was very healthy throughout the pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful, healthy angel at full term. Not every mother and child is so blessed. Not every family experiences that joy and ease. As much as I feel for and hope to assist all mothers and babies everywhere, I see the March for Babies as a perfect fit for my desires to help.
Too many suffer needlessly because of a lack of information or health care that can be made readily available with your support. Please go to my personal fund-raising page and donate today.
I walk in 12 days. I am hoping to raise $200 by April 24th to walk the next morning, a full 4 miles around a busy part of Lafayette, Indiana. Click here for more information. It’s going to be a fun day! Please show your support.
