TheMomBuzz was recently affected by a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital and is so HAPPY with the service it provided. We are thrilled to share this sponsored buzz on how your donations make a difference.
My “babies” are all grown up. Okay, just thinking about that makes me weepy. I feel lucky that my husband has “young” brothers that have gorgeous fiances and girlfriends and *I know* they will make me som gorgeous (and tall) nephews and nieces one day. Like the “old lady” I am, I have so much WONDERFUL advice on marriage AND babies I can offer! And one IMPORTANT thing is that not all diapers are created equal.
I was a Pampers Mama – and I KNOW not much has changed since the days I was changing diapers. I mean, I bet all diapers have gone through some changes. But Pampers was the GO TO diaper. Other brands might be cheaper, but the quality reflected that, as well. Tabs broke the the minute you stretched them and they barely wicked any moisture from delicate tooshes. Pampers ROCKED in both areas, though.
And now the diaper brand you would already buy because of QUALITY gives you even MORE reason to purchasee them. Helping OTHER children. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to children that may suffer from common childhood afflictions like asthma and broken bones, as well as those that fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer. To show support for the organization and the one in 10 kids in North America who are treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year, Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to donate $200,000 this month of June.
By purchasing products like Pampers Swaddlers at your local Walmart, portions of the proceeds will go to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. You can look up hospitals in this network by visiting the Hospital Search. I can tell you that this past weekend my niece was at one of those hospitals – All Children’s in St. Petersburg. She had Deep Veing Thrombosis, a blood clot in a vein. I was so scared, but she wasn’t. The hospital was so prepared for children, making her feel at ease, even as she received blood thinning shots in her stomach and xrays, catscans, MRIs and more as they tried to find a “risk factor” that would lead to this illness. Thankfully, none was found. Yet at the same time, why is a NEWLY 10 year old getting a blood clot in a vein?
I was in a hospital when I was four. It’s a vivid memory of feeling like a caged animal. I still remember being in the hospital and being so scared. My niece had the expertise of specialized doctors, along with rooms and amenities that made her feel at ease. I am SO glad that she portions of proceeds from products like Pampers went to this hospital, helping in her care. And that is just ONE story. Every day, member hospitals treat 16,000 children in emergency rooms. You can see how easy it is to “hit home” with how someone you know and love can benefit from a simple purchase.
