View Full Version : March for Babies

It's that time again! The 2009 March For Babies is fast approaching!

I am participating in March for Babies because I believe in the March of Dimes mission to save babies. Please support my fundraising efforts by sponsoring me in March for Babies today.

Contributing to my march online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal webpage with a credit/debit card or PayPal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my webpage.

The money we raise helps save premature and sick babies. Premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the biggest threat to babies’ health today, and through March for Babies, the March of Dimes is funding important research to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it.

This walk is dedicated to my twins, Jaydan and Raven Skaggs, and to the memory of our son Daniel. Daniel was born at 24 weeks July 31, 2004 and lived 31 precious hours. He is in our hearts forever. Jaydan and Raven were born at 29 weeks 5 days and spent over six weeks in the NICU. Jaydan weighing 3lbs 4ozs and Raven 2lb 12ozs at birth. They are now 3 years old and both are happy healthy toddlers. They are my miracle babies!

With your support, there’s hope.

Thank you!

I would so donate if I could, but since I can't you have my full support.

I had a miscarriage 3/23/08, I was only 5 weeks but it still hurt really bad. Thank you for doing this. :wink:

Thank you!
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks with my first pregnancy also. It is very painful no matter how far along you are.

Should I assume this goes through the entire month of March? I'd like to donate when I get paid next week. :)
