Why I'm walking
It's that time of year again! On Sunday, April 27th, I will be participating in my 8th March for Babies event in Chicago! I know that it is incredibly hard for a lot of people to donate this year (I'm in the same boat), but I would like to ask you to keep reading this anyway, because there are other ways you can help even if you are unable to donate this year. I am walking to honor Jackson's memory, in the hopes that the more research that is done, the less families will have to go through the pain of losing a child.
Why March for Babies? Because the March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will help:
- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
This year, I would love for TEAM CHD (Congenital Heart Defects) to grow and be even bigger and better than previous years! In 2008, we, as a Team, raised $2,258!! (And that was with just 5 walkers, everyone did awesome!!) Please join the Team and walk with us! There are walks all over the country, and even several in the Chicagoland area, not just downtown. Just go "Join Us" section for links to sign up for Team CHD, and when you go through the sign up process it will allow you to change the location of your walk if you aren't in the Chicago or Indianapolisareas. Have you already signed up for your local walk? You can still join our Team by logging into your account and then Edit Page, and select a Team. You'll be able to join an existing team by searching.
I am asking you to show your support for our Team and our mission to help March of Dimes by forwarding this to your family and friends, and asking them to do the same! You can also share this lens by clicking any of the share buttons at the top of the page!
Ready to donate? Just go to any of the donation banners at the top of the page and you can donate by credit card or PayPal, and you immediately get your receipt for your tax deduction! Want to donate cash or check? Let me know!
