Pampers and Unicef have teamed up for a great project. I don’t have a baby in diapers, but I know a lot of you do! Have you heard of the “One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign?
Oh, well if you have seen the specially marked packages of Pampers products, this is the scoop.
“One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign – a global initiative with UNICEF to eliminate
maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), a preventable disease that claims the lives of approximately 128,000 infants and up to 30,000 mothers in less industrialized nations each year – that’s approximately one newborn
death every four minutes.
From February 5 through May 1, 2009, parents in the U.S. and Canada have the opportunity to help UNICEF protect moms and babies around the world against tetanus, by simply purchasing specially-marked packages of Pampers diapers and wipes. Each product purchased, triggers funding for one life-saving vaccine.
It’s that easy!
To increase awareness, Pampers is asking you to look for the specially marked packages when you purchase their products. It makes a difference. And we are all about that.
Visit the Pampers/Unicef site for more information and to find out about the wonderful things they are doing.
You can register your points at Gifts that Grow which rewards you for buying Pampers.
