The Pampers Little Miracle Mission

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on May 16, 2011

In celebration of its 50th birthday, Pampers is recognizing how much parenting has changed over the years, and is sharing their belief that every baby is a little miracle that deserves to be celebrated, supported and protected, by unveiling its Little Miracle Mission campaign – a program that delivers acts of kindness to miracles and their families while encouraging parents to support others.

Pampers recently gave me a $50 gift card, so that we could get involved in these random acts of kindness, too. They challenged me to use this money in a fun and unique way to celebrate a little miracle in my community. I could use these funds any way I liked, so I decided that I would let YOU decide how we should use this money to celebrate, support or protect little miracles in our community, on behalf of Pampers.

In addition, you can enter to win your very own $50 gift card to find a way to celebrate, support or protect a new little miracle in your community. Just leave me a comment, before 9pm (PT) on May 31st, telling me how we both should spend the money. My family and I will decide which idea we think is the “best” and that second gift card will be awarded to you, so we both can make it happen in our own communities!

I’m sure you’re wondering how else you can get involved, right? Well, you can also participate in the Miracles Missions program, and support little miracles across the country, by logging on to Pampers Facebook page. There you can participate in the second Little Miracle Mission- to help give dads the time he and his baby deserve to bond. Once they get 4,000 commitments to complete the mission, Pampers will throw special Father’s Day cook-outs for dads and babies across the country designed to give dads and their babies valuable bonding time. It’ll be a day to remember.

An idea for you: contact a local womens shelter & ask if there’s either a pregnant lady or mom of young child that you could either take shopping for diapers/baby items (idk if they’d allow? that) or (if they won’t) you could make and bring a package to someone- and then have your kids make cards too for them.

an idea for me: there’s a young lady in my church who’s been married under 2 yrs, has a 13 month old who’s been sick for several months (had to take chemo drugs), and is expecting baby #2 in 9 weeks. Momma has been sick too- and is having surgery this week- her husband works 2 jobs, and her parents live in Alaska. If I win, I’d take the gc, buy her diapers for both kids, and then buy groceries & make her some freezer meals to take some stress off her!

What a wonderful idea! I wish others payed more attention to their surroundings. I remember when I was a young mother, it would have been wonderful to have someone take an interest in me like that!

I really love the idea of making a meal for a family that recently had a baby, especially if there is some sort of special care needed for the baby or family members.

In our town there’s a home for pregnant teens that have been kicked out by their parents. I would donate diapers to those girls because they could really use the help!

An idea for you…donate baby items to a battered women’s shelter, or if you know a new mom who is struggling either financially or emotionally, you could provide some food or baby items to her.

For me…our area had a lot of damage from the tornado outbreak. I know of several young families who lost everything, and I know of several single moms who lost everything as well. I could either choose one and buy some things for them, or I could go out and buy some necessities for all the families!

I have a single mom neighbor whose 6 year old comes to my door regularly to borrow. I think a large bag of cooking staples and some diapers for the baby would be a small miracle but a huge help for them.

I’ll use it to buy a couple of birth kits for our local birth center.

I know of a couple different organizations that are sending relief to the people in the south who lost everything in the tornadoes. I know top of their list is things like diapers and formula and there is a way to buy it on Amazon and have it shipped directly to them!

We should use the gift cards to buy food and household items for people in need, and donate it to our local food pantries. There are a lot of people quietly going hungry, and I like to donate to soup kitchens and food pantries as much as possible.

Create a baby gift basket and take it a nearby hospital. There are always families in need of a gift especially those that have babies in the NICU.

You could use it to buy diapers and preemie clothes to donate to a local hospital NICU. I would buy clothes, books, and baby supplies to give to a shelter for pregnant teens and young mothers.

I will use the gift card for my niece that is expecting her second child. She can use to to buy Pampers.

I am going to buy some Pampers and clothing for a young woman who works with my husband. She has a 2 year old son…her husband has been out of work for 6 momths and they are really struggling…when I was this young lady’s age =we also had a very difficult time and had a baby people were so generous in helping us out–I think its only right that I should pay it forward and give to this sweet young woman
thanks

First of all I have to say that I love this campaign!

I think you should take the $5o and buy 5 $10 gift cards to them to 5 parents, for target or baby’s r us or a grocery store. It’s not much but you can reach a few more people and I think as parents we appreciate all the help we can get.

How about donating the giftcard to a Mommy you see in the diaper aisle at Walmart. It would be like ambush giving. She would be in the market to buy some diapers for her baby and you give her the giftcard so she can stock up on diapers for her little one.

I think they should be donated to a local women’s shelter – they are always in need of supplies!

I thnk it would be a good idea to get diapers and wipes for mom’s at my local Domestic abuse shelter

Roxy May 22, 2011 at 6:51 pm

I agree with all the ideas of giving to shelters as above.

Another idea would be to send an anonymous and encouraging flower to each baby in the neonatal intensive care unit at your local hospital to let them know your rooting for their survival.

I would definitely use it to buy diapers to donate, either to a charity for children or a women’s shelter. Diapers are so expensive and in demand.

There is a home for unwed mothers near me called “Maggie’s House.” I would donate the $50 gift card to their home, as there are sometimes preemies born there. I think it would be great if we could both help a home or hospital, because those places always need more assistance.

There is a homeless shelter in my area that I donate to regularly and I know, sadly, there are small babies living there. I would buy diapers, formula, etc with coupons and donate.

I had two preemies and the best thing that people did for us was bring us a home cooked meal. My twins were in the NICU for 50 days and the last thing on our mind was food. I know what a blessing it would be to bring the fmailies a home cooked meal. Esp, here in Las Vegas where most people do not have family. I know when got through it much better thanks to our church familiy that brought us dinner almost every night.

We have an ill elderly neighbor, so I would put it towards a meal for her. Or diapers for a needy family- there are so many out there. Thanks
