In the spirit of holiday giving, we are hoping you can spare 5 minutes to help us out. Every year, we use online advertisements (banners) to promote our March for Babies event on the Web. This year, our creative department went overboard and produced 6 different banners. We can’t choose, so we’re hoping you can decide for us.

 

Take the survey and tell us which banner is your favorite. We’ll reveal the winner here in the new year.

I have an idea-why not feature preemies who are now healthy, telling their story on video. You could create a section of your blog for kids to share their stories about how much they love MOD and how much they love all the volunteers, fans and fundraisers. You could feature post the videos on Youtube and embed onto the FB page too.

I’m a proud auntie of 2 preemies and my family and I love all you guys do!

I Agree C! I promote all my son’s fundraisers for the March of Dimes through the success of what March of Dimes has accomplished. Seeing 1st hand what this organization is capable of allows it to become real to those who do not understand or know. My son Tanner has touched so many lives with the short life he has had now. He continues to inspire others not to give up, but also we his parent encourage other parents and families to hang in there. One thing..I can’t manage to post my video from UTUBE this year on my MOD pages…any suggestions? As well when I promote MOD page on FB, it does not allow anyone to donate. The page shows up, but the links are not present, just empty buttons. I appreciate what you do for the Mrch of Dimes, and thank you for your time! Team Captain (Tanner’s Team) Tara

I also agree with the above comments! I think if you show pics of actual preemies and their follow up pics (like you do at the end of the walk with the posters) it would have a great impact on people! I am a mother of 2 beautiful children, 1 of which was born at only 1lb 13oz and has grown into a happy, healthy 9 year old!
Thanks for all you do MOD!

I think it is a great idea for follow up pictures and stories. My sister was a preemie baby and she is now 22 years old. She is very healthy even though she was told she was going to have some medical problems growing up. I think the stories of actual people can give so much support to families and their premature babies. It is great to see March of Dimes be so successful with so many lives.

I also agree with above comments. show pictures of before and after of preemies. My daughter was born at 31 weeks weighing 3lb 5 oz. She has mild CP and had seizures from birth up to age 5. She is now seizure free and off medication since 2006.
MOD is awesome and I am blessed to be a part of it.
