About Pampers Little Miracle Mission:
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.
I was offered a $50 American Express Gift Card to participate in the pay-it-forward program and with a couple of my dearest friends expecting little ones, I knew exactly how I was going to use it. After spending quite some time deciding what was the best way to pay-it-forward with my gift card, I decided to use it on a really close friend of mine that was expecting her second baby, but due to the recent storms and tornados here in Arkansas, they had lost just about everything and was struggling after her husband lost his job, so I went and bought a little over $50 worth of diapers, wipes and other must have baby items and fixed them up in a beautiful gift basket. I really wish I would have taken the time to take a photo before I took it to them, but I was so excited to be able to give so much that I forgot to take the picture.
Needless to say the family was thrilled with their gift basket and my friend even cried when she seen I had gotten some things for their 3year old daughter as well. I know that a lot of you guys and gals reading my blog is parents, expecting or knows someone who is and I’m sure you all have wonderful ideas on how to give back with a $50 gift card so I’m going to give you all a chance to win one thanks to Pampers!
