I am a brother. I am a son. At work I am a manager. When I have time I am a soccer player. We all have many roles in our daily life. My favorite role above all is being a father. I was born to be a good father and make my kids safe and happy. When my boys were born all I wished for was that they would be healthy with all 10 fingers and 10 toes. And whenever I see parents to be I wish the same for them. There is an organization called March Of Dimes that feels the same way.
For more than 75 years, the March of Dimes has been a leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
Founded in 1938 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, of the March of Dimes original mission was to defeat polio. By 1955, with funding from the March of Dimes, the Salk vaccine had been developed and tested, followed by the Sabin oral vaccine in 1962, and polio was on its way out.
Throughout its history, the March of Dimes has tackled infant health problems.Campaigns have supported programs related to polio, birth defects, folic acid, newborn screening and premature birth.
Today, the March of Dimes is inspired by all babies – those born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive. These babies are the millions of reasons behind our urgent mission and why the March of Dimes:
- supports all important research into the causes and preventions for premature birth and birth defects;
- fights for health insurance for all pregnant women and children;
- pushes for expanded newborn screening that could save lives and prevent disabilities;
- reaches out to women with healthy pregnancy information and services;
- provides comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care.
I am very proud to announce I am a Dad Ambassador for the imbornto campaign for March of Dimes.
imbornto is a national cause marketing campaign that benefits the March of Dimes. It taps into the collective hopes, dreams and aspirations that we have for our babies and ourselves. All babies are born to do something great; something special and theirs alone. But they can’t do it on their own. Thanks to your support, the March of Dimes can help babies be born strong and healthy. The imbornto campaign raises money for the organization’s vital research and programs that improve the lives of babies and families everywhere.
Doing well as a company leads to doing good for the community. March of Dimes has several partners that have created special deals for its customers that wish to support March of Dimes and #imbornto campaign.
