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.

Make your donation to the March of Dimes today to celebrate a hero in your life!

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

Be a Hero for Babies Day

Posted by Linda
July 22 is Be a Hero for Babies day!

July 22 is Be a Hero for Babies day!

I won’t watch a scary movie by myself, I’m deathly terrified of spiders and am already teaching my son to fear motorcycles. No hero by any standard.


But this, I can do: go one day without my skinny latte, bring my own lunch to work, skip pizza Friday, have date night at home…


That’s all it takes to be a hero for a little baby.


July 22 is “Be a Hero for Babies” day and starting today, our friends at Farmers are doubling every gift to the March of Dimes.


You can give as little as $1.99 and they’ll match it. And when you’re done, you can pick up our avatar (the cute picture above) and show off your new superhero status to your friends on Facebook or Twitter!


I know you worked hard for March for Babies. But the fight goes on for babies born too soon or very sick. Please give your $1.99 today. Or tomorrow. Don’t wait to long though – Farmers’ match is only good through the 22nd.


What can you give up today to save a baby?


Update 7/20: Only three days left. Time to get out your cape – or your credit card. Be a hero for babies, I know you have it in you!
