When unfortunate things happen, we feel more than just shocked and sad. We also feel powerless and overwhelmed. Often, we wish there was something–anything–we could do to make a difference. Sometimes it feels impossible to make things better. But not this time. You are invited to the March for Babies Open House to scrapbook for a worthy cause–stronger, healthier babies. Get in on the fun while learning REAL ways you can make a difference.

Why This Cause?
The tiniest, most vulnerable humans are often those most at risk. Each year, over half a million infants are born prematurely and face significant health problems. Many have serious health challenges that continue long after birth, and some don’t survive. Each innocent baby deserves the best start possible in life, and the March for Babies walk raises money to help community programs improve the odds of healthy, full-term births. Much of the money raised by the March for Babies walk also funds research into ways to prevent serious health problems and provide solutions for those that do develop.
What Is This Event?
The March for Babies Open House combines fun and creativity with raising awareness of this critical cause. When you attend, you’ll get to scrapbook for babies (supplies will be provided for you), enjoy refreshments, and learn more about March for Babies. Have questions? March of Dimes staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer them. Learn more about the cause at hand, the walk itself, and ways you can help. Get information you can share with family members and friends, and learn how March for Babies can help moms in your community.
Bring the Kids
You don’t need a babysitter for this event. Bring the kids along! The open house will provide fun activities for children as well.
Bring a Friend
Spreading the word is half the battle when it comes to causing real change. Each person can make a difference by learning about March for Babies and sharing his or her knowledge with others. So bring a friend with you to get in on the fun of scrapbooking for babies and learn how to give our tiniest humans a healthier future.
