Today is Be a Hero for Babies Day!

Be a Hero for Babies!

Today is Be a Hero for Babies Day and Farmers agents across the country are doing their part to help fight premature birth. Some know firsthand what it’s like to have a baby born too soon and very sick. Like Jennifer Azaira. Born 10 weeks early, Jennifer’s son Jaxson had to fight for his life in newborn intensive care. Thanks to research by the March of Dimes and the generosity of the Farmers family, his story has a happy ending.

And there’s Jim Mulligan, a Farmers District Manager from Los Angeles who was inspired by a friend’s experience with a premature baby. He soared past his $6,000 fundraising goal and inspired his agents to beat their best. But their real goal isn’t a number, it’s to help the families in their community.

For 25 years, Farmers agents and employees have shown an incredible commitment to helping babies. But their great results wouldn’t be possible without people like you. And today, your gift will do double the good. Make your donation to the March of Dimes and Farmers will match it dollar for dollar.* You can also text the word HERO to 20222 to donate $5 right now.

Thank you for joining with Farmers and the March of Dimes in working together for stronger, healthier babies!

* up to $25,000
