In celebration of its 50th birthday, Pampers is recognizing how much parenting has changed over the years, and is sharing their belief that every baby is a little miracle that deserves to be celebrated, supported and protected, by unveiling its Little Miracle Mission campaign – a program that delivers acts of kindness to miracles and their families while encouraging parents to support others.
The brand recently kicked off the Little Miracle Missions campaign by delivering a giant act of support –donating care packages to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) across the country. Celebs Joey Lawrence , Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos and LaLa Anthonywere on-hand in New York City to personally deliver a care package and thank you basket to Mt. Sinai Hospital and their staff.
As part of its Little Miracles campaign, Pampers sent me a $50 gift card to "pay-it-forward". I was challenged to find someone in need and use the funds to help in some way. I decided to help a family in my community who recently had a little baby boy. The family has been hit hard by the economy and their home is being foreclosed on. I have been so impressed by this mother and her faith and optimism despite the challenges they are facing. This sweet mother always has a smile on her face and feels blessed to have this miracle baby, despite the extra financial burden.
I used the $50 gift card to buy diapers and wipes, then I added a few more things on my own to create a baby care gift basket. My mom who was also in town pitched in as well. After all the many wonderful things that people have done for me, it was great to be able to give back. I love the spirit of kindness and community spirit that Pampers is creating with their campaign.
But this is not all...Pampers would like to give one lucky Wilkinson Quints reader a $50 gift card to help YOU pay-it-forward also! If you would like to be involved in this mission to help celebrate parenthood, all you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know what you would do with the $50. On Sunday evening (May 15th) I will choose the "winner". Some ideas are to use the money to purchase diapers for a family who could use them, use the money to prepare meals for a family, or even use the money to host a larger fundraiser for a family. I'd love to see what creative ideas you all can come up with!!
Even if you do not with the $50, you can still participate in the Miracles Missions programs, and support little miracles across the country, by logging on to Pampers Facebook page (Facebook.com/Pampers). Pampers will issue different missions throughout the entire year to celebrate all aspects of parenthood, and with the help of parents, family and friends, they hope to touch the lives of every baby born in the next year.
The gift basket
The quints LOVED seeing the little baby---only 6 weeks old! Holding him brought back so many memories of my own babies! I can't believe my "babies" are almost 4!
Let those creative juices start flowing and leave me a comment (along with your email address) telling me how you would use the $50. Don't wait....the contest ends Sunday, May 15th at 7 pm CDT.
