Baby Jack Blankets chooses to contribute to a select group of children's organizations providing comfort where it is needed. In the past, we have contributed to Autism Speaks, Celebrate the Military Child, The Special Olympics, Healing Hailey, Go Bright Pink and more.
This year, our 2014 selected charity is March of Dimes, and specifically Friends of Maddie. Maddie is the daughter of Heather and Mike Spohr from top blog The Spohrs are Multiplying and this non profit was created in hopes to assist families with babies in the NICU after she was born on November 11, 2007 at 26 weeks and 6 days; over 11 weeks premature. Maddie's lungs were left scarred due to her prematurity and became an angel unexpectedly on April 7, 2009 after coming down from a severe respiratory infection. Friends of Maddie was established to tribute to this beautiful little girl and the light that she brought into the world.

Show this family, and many more that they are in your thoughts. Their struggles have not gone unnoticed and that their strength is admirable. Let's all March for Babies in any way we can.
When you donate or walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. March of Dimes have been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2.3 billion to benefit all babies.
