March for Babies 2008

No Comments

Hello fellow Citizens,

My name is Zetaman. I was recently featured in the Willamette Weekly March 5th. I come to you with a new cause that I am working on in April. My team and I are going to participate in the March for Babies walk-a-thon with the March of Dimes.

Donating to our March of Dimes’ page is fast, easy and secure with a debit/credit card or with a PayPal account. If none of these are available, the March of Dimes can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box at http://marchforbabies.org/zetaman.

The money that is raised will help save premature and sick babies. According to various of medical websites –
“Overall the infant mortality rate was 6.85 infant deaths per 1,000 live births.”
And
“Approximately 34% of infant deaths within the first year of life are of premature babies, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. The most common cause of death in the United States, according to official reports, is birth defects, with premature birth as the second most common. However, the new figures presented put premature birth as the leading cause of death among infants in the United States.”

These statistics are 30% greater then what it was over 20 years ago. But hopefully, the funding provided by the March of Dimes will help research and determine why premature births happen and what can be done to prevent it.

There are millions across the country who support the March for Babies every year. It is with humility and respect that my team and I try to help raise money for this honorable cause. Please go to http://marchforbabies.org/zetaman to sponsor me or learn more information on how you can get involved. Together, we can help our newborns and our future.

Thank you very much,

Zetaman
