March for Babies

So, I have been on the hunt for some kind of organization that is local dealing with pregnancy & infant loss. The reason being that pregnancy loss is a very close issue to me and I have a dear friend who lost her little boy in the fall so that is another cause close to my heart. I have yet to really find anything, of course I have found some, but they are all on the west coast, too far for this east coast gal. Last night I was doing a search and came across March of Dimes, and they do a local walk here in the Spring. I decided to sign myself up. Granted it's not exactly the type of organization I was looking for but it is for a good cause and I'm all about helping out with infant mortality. I've recruited the hubs and the little one will be going for us. Am trying to form a team. And am posting the sponsorship widget on my blog for hopefully some more foot traffic. So please feel free to look around the website for more info or click on my widget if you would like to donate. Even if it's just a $1. The money that is donated supports research and programs for moms and babies. I am hoping to exceed the $250 with the help of everyone. Thank you.

Hi Kathleen! Found your blog through SITS and wanted to say I think this is a fantastic cause to support. I, too, have dealt with pregnancy loss and am so grateful for a healthy child and that's what the March of Dimes is all about. I have made a donation and wish you much sucess with raising all the funds you need for this walk. Take care!
