A Birthday Gift for President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Posted by Linda

Today marks President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 130th birthday. Thanks to our nation’s 32nd President, who founded March of Dimes, millions of women and infants have been given the gift of healthier, full-term pregnancies. President Roosevelt’s 130th birthday is a perfect time to celebrate his life-changing contributions in maternal and child health.

Efforts are underway in Congress to mint a March of Dimes commemorative coin. To do this we must secure 290 cosponsors in the House of Representatives and 67 cosponsors in the Senate. This is a steep hill to climb – urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor the March of Dimes Commemorative Coin Act (S. 1935 / H.R. 3187) today!

This would be such a wonderful idea for Congress to approve this coin.
