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.

As a thank you, they have given me 4 special onsies (1 per winner) for 4 special readers.

Here’s how you can enter!

Visit  Pampers and tell me one fact you’ve learned about the struggles with vaccines or what Unicef is doing to help.

    I love that Pampers is trying to make a diffrence with this campaign. I learned that so far they have raised 11 million vaccines. Our family has been supporting this program by only buying Pampers Diapers and Wipes. My son would be very proud to sport the One Vaccine Onesie and spread the word.

    They are trying to vaccinate against tetanus. It’s hard to believe people still die from that but they do.

    I learned they’re well on their way to their goal of 31 million tetanus vaccines, having reached 11 million so far.

    I was shocked to learn that neonatal tetanus (which I’d never heard of before, either) kills about one child every three minutes. Unicef’s goal is to vaccinate 31 million for tetanus and they have 20 million more to go.

    I learned that maternal and newborn tetanus claims the lives of nearly 130,000 newborns and up to 30,000 mothers every year.

    I learned that tetnus takes many young babies lives but there is no need for it cause the vaccinations are soo cheap..which is why I donated ALL my points to vaccinate some beautiful babies.

    Tetanus is a deadly disease caused by bacteria called Clostridium tetani that lives on dead & decaying matter in the soil, animal dung & feces

    Neonatal tetanus is the most easily preventable cause of neonatal deaths.
    In spite of major progress made, the disease kills about one child every three minutes.
