Little Miracle Mission

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.

Everyone can easily participate in the Miracles Missions programs, and support little miracles across the country, by logging on to Pampers Facebook page (Facebook.com/Pampers). Pampers is also asking everyone to pay-it-forward by participating in the first Little Miracle Mission- to congratulate and offer support to an expectant mother with a gift or surprise gesture. Once more than 2,500 people pledge that they have achieved this mission, Pampers will respond by giving baby showers to expectant mothers nationwide just in time for Mother’s Day. 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.

Here’s where Multiples and More comes in, Pampers is supplying me with a $50 gift card to pay it forward in my community and another $50 gift card for one of you to pay it forward in your community. How great is that?! So what am I doing with my $50? Well, let me tell you…

In my community there is a great resource for young pregnant mothers called the South Lake Pregnancy Center. Here young mothers, often turned out by their families, are offered counseling, birthing classes, breastfeeding classes, all free of charge. The pregnancy center is run by an amazing woman named Eddie and the last time I checked there was over 26 children being supported, several of them are twins. The center helps the girls get back on their feet by helping with diapers, formula, baby food and clothes. I’ve worked with South Lake since December through my church and I would use my $50 to stock their diaper and wipes shelves.

So what would you do with $50 for your community? Leave your responses below and on Monday April 25th I’ll let you know who is going to get to make that dream a reality!

    For 5 years I worked in juvenile probation. I often had teen mothers on my caseload that had very little resources and were struggling to make ends meet. Many of them couldn't even rely on their own families for help. And rarely did the birth dad help in any way. If I won the $50 gift card, I'd put together some small bags of diapers/wipes and drop them off by my old office. That way the probation officers could pass out the bags to teen moms as needed.

  2. Our school system has been hit hard by budget cuts. I would ask them what their biggest need is and see what I could help them with.

  3. I would use it for the local NICU support group that was so fantastic to my husband and I while our twins were in the NICU for 6 weeks (born at 30 wks).
    Every month they make and deliver gifts to the parents of babies in the NICU (little things like personalized picture frames). $50 would go a long way for supplies for these projects and they really cheer up an otherwise scary NICU environment.

  4. My friend, Jeanine (breast cancer survivor & fellow mom), started Little Pink Houses of Hope, an organization to provide week-long beach retreats for breast cancer patients and their families.

    All of the moms undergoing treatment and attending this year's retreats are young and all have young children. Thirteen of the children attending are under 3, and seven of the families have twins.

    The retreats are meant to be a much-needed break from the demands of cancer treatment. The week (housing, food, entertainment, and supplies) is completely free for families and funded through the generosity of donations.

    If I won the gift card, I would use the money to buy supplies such as swim diapers, wipes, baby sunscreen, & beach toys to make the week more enjoyable for the youngest members of these special families.

  5. I teach special education in an inner city school. There are many families in need in our area – our city is really struggling. Our school has a uniform policy and I'd use the money to buy uniforms & books for families in need.

    April is Autism Awareness Month. I'm dedicating my blog all month long to Autism.

  6. Wow! Those are all amazing!

    We have a very sweet family in our support group who have identical triplet boys and a 2yr old! The babies are 2 and a half months now. Her hubby lost his job while she was on bedrest. And about 3 weeks ago one of her triplets stopped eating and started bleeding. He has NEC which attacks the intestines. He had surgery and is now off of a ventilator and his swelling has gone down.n But it is very much touch and go.

    With no family in town everything seems beyond overwhelming to this amazing family. Their need is huge and this would truly bless them. You can read their story at http://www.journeyofatrio.blogspot.com

  7. I worked at an all-girls Catholic high school (where I also went to school). Every year we collected diapers for a local women and children's shelter called St. John's. The last collection we did collected over 200,000 diapers in just one week. Unfortunately our school closed in 2009, so as you can imagine the shelter has had to find other ways to make up for this huge loss in donations. I would donate the $50 to St. John's Shelter.
