“I wanted to be a part of the solution. Given how lucky I’ve been to have healthy babies, I knew it was my calling to give back.”

“I’ve volunteered for over 15 years with March of Dimes on the local, state and national level. It’s a great organization, a wonderful partnership. There’s always a chance in the initiatives and opportunity to make an impact.”
Every year 4 million babies are born. This is an exciting and challenging time, but can also be scary when everything doesn’t go as planned. March of Dimes supports families before, during and after pregnancy through research, education and programs that create healthy moms and strong babies. It starts with mom but we know it’s a family affair.
Show your support by sending a note of hope to a mom or dad to be or to a family with a baby currently in the NICU. Sharing your advice, experience and words of encouragement. Your note will go a long way in letting others know they are not alone.
We’ll happily share your note at an upcoming March of Dimes baby shower or with a family with a baby currently in the NICU.
Or, download the template and write your own. Once written, please mail your notes to March of Dimes 1550 Crystal Drive Suite 1300, Arlington, VA 22202 Attn: Notes of Hope
Let’s reach as many moms, dads and families as possible!
