Be A Hero for Babies Day is this Wednesday!

Posted by Linda

Be a Hero for Babies Day is just around the corner.  It is a day when Farmers agents will reach out in their communities and raise more than $2 Million to support the March of Dimes mission.

Heather Gilbert, District Recruiter for Farmers Insurance and Financial Services, joins all of Farmers in giving back to March of Dimes.  But for her, it’s personal.  In 1995 Heather gave birth to identical twin boys, born at 27.5 weeks gestation weighing in at only 2lbs 2oz. and 2lbs 3oz.  Sadly, only one of her sons, Daniel, survived.  In her own words:

“The March of Dimes is important because there are so many babies born early or with birth defects. These small babies can not battle for their lives alone. They need support and love; not only from their families but from the doctors and staff that care for them in the NICU. The March of Dimes is able to provide research, studies, education and community services to give babies like mine the fighting chance of survival.”

Farmers has an outstanding record of volunteer service, contributing time, energy, talent and financial resources to helping babies. Joining them and be a “Hero for Babies.” Your donation will be matched by Farmers dollar for dollar!* You can make your donation here.

You can also join the Be a Hero for Babies Day event on Facebook here.

*Up to $25,000
