The March of Dimes Supports Mothers and Babies
When I was growing up and going to elementary school, I collected donations for the March of Dimes and walked to help earn funds for the group. I never really knew what the March of Dimes was, except that it was supposed to help kids, and we were encouraged to support it.
The March of Dimes is a non-profit organization that funds research to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant death.
Their website has a wealth of information for expectant parents about pregnancy and childbirth. I would recommend reading the information they provide and deciding if you feel it's a worthy effort to support.
If you are interested in supporting this group by walking, donating, or in any other way, please go to their website. There is a March for Babies coming up soon, and you can register for it here. You can use their interactive tool to find an event near you.
