THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!
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 Anthony were on-hand in New York City to personally deliver a care package and thank you basket to Mt. Sinai Hospital and their staff.
The public 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.
Pampers provided a $50 American Express Gift Card for me to Pay-It-Forward to someone in need. My card arrived and I decided to use it for a fundraising event held for a sweet family in my community, The Falatea Family. Their sweet daughter Lauren had a heart transplant. Her school along with McDonald's held a fundraiser for her. I was so happy that this card came in time to donate to this great family. Here are a few photos of the event.

The hardest, part of this challenge....
Sadly, this sweet little girl passed away from an infection, as she was still recovering.
She was a beautiful girl, with a lovely smile and an amazingly strong will. Her family is definitely strong and I couldn't even imagine how hard that could be. I am definitely keeping them in my prayers.
Thank you Pampers for allowing me to Pay-It-Forward!
Now, it's your turn.
How to enter:
Leave me a comment with your idea of how you can pay it forward. I will use random.org to make my selection, because it will be too hard to pick one person.
This Giveaway will end on June 8th, 2011 @ midnight. MST
USA residents only
(Please think of someone in your community that you could help. One thing you could do is, to buy diapers for a family in need. Or perhaps buy clothing for some children in need. Or help an elderly neighbor.)
