We’re Counting on You!

All you walkers and fundraisers out there, I know you’ve done so much already… but we still need your help! 


It’s really no surprise, but March for Babies is feeling the economic crunch. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we’re $3 million short of our online fundraising goal.


I just found out about this number and all I can think about is what a huge amount of money that is. And then I think about how much we could do with that money to help babies and families.


The March of Dimes has already cut several million in research grants. Now it looks like that may have been just the beginning.


Unless we do something now. And we can. Yes, $3 million is big. But if we all join together, it’s not that much!


$20 from every March for Babies participant is all it takes to reach our goal. $20, made as a donation to your own walk. Even if you’ve already reached your goal. It’s all it takes.


You guys, I have never asked you to do anything I’m not doing myself also. I gave my $20, please join me!


I’m counting on you, we’re counting on you. And most of all, the babies are. Help give them the chance they deserve.


We’re Counting on You!

That’s my Evan! If he can’t make you give that extra $20, I don’t know what will.

I personally thought march of dimes was a scam like the guys that sit out side n beg for change! Untill I gave birth to my daughter I was 24 weeks when I went into labor and had her! At the hospital they gave me a march of dimes pamplet thats when I really relized that march of dimes is great! My daughter was too tiny and early to live more than 2 months but with the support and strengh from people from march of dimes I was able to deal alot better with her death! yes premature birth came happen to anyone and at any time! Since her I have had one other premature baby that was way to early at 22 weeks then I had my son who was born at 32 weeks and is doing great! I thought that because me and my family were well off that this stuff couldnt happen to us but it can happen and it does happen every day! SO IF YOU HAVE ANY HEART AT ALL PLEASE GIVE TO THE CHILDREN THEY ARE THE FUTURE AND THEY NEEDS ALL OF US!
