March of Dimes is a very personal cause for me.
For more information on why, you can go to my personal page. But basically, I walk for the March of Dimes because I want to help prevent premature births, and to help support cures and care for the afflictions of those that are born prematurely. Parents should take their children home from the hospital, not to the cemetery.
In 2008, together we raised over $5,000 with just me walking. The last three years, the economy shrunk that number. Let's see if we pump things up again this year. Once again this year, you can do more than just donate to my walk. You can sign up, join Team MousePlanet, and raise money at the walk in your community! My personal goal is to raise another $5,000. Our team goal is $6,000. Join me and help be a part of saving babies! Let's show how big a heart MousePlanet readers and MouseStation listeners have!
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this. I know you care, too. That's why I'm asking you to join us. It's easy: just click the join this team button.
If you can't walk with us, please help by donating to one of our team members, or to our team as a whole. You can do so right on this page. Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start!
Thanks so much for your support!
Mark Goldhaber, captain, Team MousePlanet
The total amount displayed reflects the amount on the team or personal fundraising
progress bar. If the progress bar is not displayed on the team or personal page, the
team/person won't be displayed on the leaderboard. Leaderboard totals reflect cash
and checks marked "received" on the online sponsor form as well as credit card and
PayPal donations. Team captains can enter as cash and mark "received" any money
raised through promotions, such as bake sales and casual days and any sponsorship
money paid to the March of Dimes, on their team's online form. Record all donations
on your online sponsor form before you turn in cash and checks to the March of Dimes!
Funds raised in March for Babies support research and programs that help moms
have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And they will be used to
bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
