March for Babies 2008

You may remember way back in November that I told you how prematurity was no joke. Well, here's your chance to help do something about it:


We are joining Team BigGuy (aka Team Aidan), to March for Babies. We are all hoping to raise money for the March of Dimes's fight against prematurity.

Here's what Cracker #7, Karen, has to say:


Yes, it’s that time of year again and Team Aidan is back! I can’t believe it’s been a year already. This year, Aidan is the Bay Area 2008 Ambassador and Bryan and I will be probably speaking at this year’s walk.

For those of you who want to participate, you can go to our team page and sign up to be part of our team, donate or do both. There’s also a link to my personal page on the homepage. I’m very excited for the walk this year, as we are the Bay Area Ambassador Family, and I’m hoping to vamp it up a bit and surpass last year’s donations of $6,500. I’m hoping we can do it because we’re starting much sooner this year. If you have any ideas about some good fund raising activities, please share. You’ve all been so generous already and I want you to know that we appreciate it greatly.

We can’t imagine life without our big guy and without the research and commitment of the March of Dimes, he might not be with us today. Can you imagine that? Weird, right? It really is a great organization and is committed to stomping out prematurity and birth defects. Every baby deserves a healthy start, and if we can prevent even one family from having to go through what we did, our efforts are worth it.


If you can even do five or ten dollars, that would be wonderful. And of course, your donation is tax deductible. :)
If you don't have a team of your own and would feel comfortable doing so, would you put up a banner in your sidebar for us (like the one I've got to the right)? Leave me a comment and I will send you the html.

Thanks so much everyone!

That's awesome! My family marches every year in honor of my husband's firstborn son, who died from complications of prematurity. Good luck raising lots of funds!

Thank you all sooo much for wanting to contribute to our fundraising efforts. YOU GALS ROCK!!!! Seriously. It really does mean a lot to us. We try to keep in mind what we went through with the big guy and how lucky we are that he's such a healthy happy baby today and this really puts things into perspective. Thanks again for helping out Team Aidan. Thanks to Impostermom for being the first to donate!!
