Feels great to help out a charity like MarchOfDimes.com.
At the beginning of March I agreed to make a donation to MarchOfDimes and happy to report that donation was completed today. I was looking to have others help me to donate but up until this point – I have not had anyone reach out to me. So I took it upon myself to make a donation from my family to MarchOfDimes.
Here is the email message I received from March Of Dimes…

Subject: Thank you for your donation.
Thank you for your donation of $100.00. Your generous support of the March of Dimes has:
- helped 3.3 million uninsured children get health insurance
- enabled more women to receive prenatal care
- and helped educate pregnant women about the benefits of taking folic acid – which may help spare their unborn babies from neural tube birth defects.
In short, hundreds of thousands of babies have been saved from low birthweight, birth defects, and even untimely death – because people like you cared enough to give to the March of Dimes.
Each time you read that our nation’s infant mortality rate is at an all-time low or that groundbreaking research is helping women deliver healthier babies, I hope you give yourself a pat on the back.
Because gifts like yours help the March of Dimes make these and other vital advances possible.
Your ongoing support will help fund lifesaving programs that educate, advocate and investigate – all in an effort to save America’s babies from prematurity, birth defects and other threats to their health.
On behalf of our nation’s babies, and their loving parents, I thank you for your support.
