march for babies blog
Around the country, Pampered Chef representatives are hosting March for Babies parties for walkers to help raise money, donating a portion of proceeds. Fabulous chef or quick and easy cook, there are wonderful kitchen gadgets and cookwear for all! The March of Dimes National Office Team had great success with this – and so can you. Bon appetit!
Whether on a Family Team or Corporate Team, volunteers are boosting team dollars in creative ways beyond getting individual sponsor donations. And with budgets so tight this year, many people love the “two for one” of fundraising when there’s something in it for them yet proceeds go to the cause of babies — whether a purchase or a party!
Here’s what’s going on out there: bake sales, scrapbooking or Pampered Chef parties, golf tournaments, poker nights, chartible dinner (checks instead of hostess gifts), birthday parties, no presents birthday parties, pj days, and more! What are you doing? Also check out the Youth and Family Teams blog for more ideas.
Wishing all March of Dimes volunteers across the country peace and prosperity for the New Year. Without volunteers like you, we can’t achieve our mission — walking together to the day when all babies are born healthy. Many thanks for your help 2008 and in advance for 2009!
