As you may know, I am an active volunteer with the March of Dimes. Not only am I involved with the Chili Championship, but I also am involved with the March for Babies.
I got involved with the March for Babies in late 2007 after my oldest daughter Jessie gave birth to twins Daniel & Gabrielle about 2 months premature. I had no idea how much money it costs to use the NICU and the amount of work that the doctors and nurses do in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It was quite an emotional experience for our entire family; however today they are healthy 1 year old kids. They are just now walking and are still very small for their age, but they are healthy.
This year I have decided to put together a team and walk at the Winston-Salem March for Babies on April 18 @ Bolton Park.
Here is my request and offer to the many great people who year after year help me with my charitable work:
Request – Sponsor my team @ http://www.marchforbabies.org/TBurriss with any amount of money you feel you could offer.
Personal Offer – For every $10 sponsorship you give, I will enter your name into a raffle for a $50 Starbucks Card. (If you prefer Panera, I will change the card for the winner).
If you give me a $50 sponsorship, I will put your name in the raffle 5 times. $100 – 10 times. $500 – 50 times.
Why March for Babies? Because the March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will help:
– support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
– educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
– provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
– push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
Won’t you please help me in this worthy cause? Contributing to my walk online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal webpage with a credit card or PayPal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my webpage.
