It’s November, and with the hustle and bustle of the holidays quickly approaching, we wanted to stop and take a moment to think about ways we at 4moms can give back. Many of you might not know that we have a charitable arm at 4moms called 4moms Cares. Our mission is to dramatically impact the lives of children and families through meaningful product donations, hospital discounts, and volunteer opportunities. Throughout the month of November, we want you to get involved, too. Here’s how:
4moms Cares Month of Giving
The Month of Giving will give you a chance to win awesome 4moms gear, AND pay it forward by winning gear for your favorite charity, too! Starting today, visit the 4moms Facebook page, click on the entry form link and complete the form. You’ll need to provide the website of your favorite charity that could benefit from (and would be willing to accept) a 4moms mamaRoo or breeze playard (depending on the week). It’s that easy.
We’ll randomly pick five winners each week. Each winner will receive the featured 4moms product and we’ll directly donate the same product on their behalf to the charity of their choice. Sounds like a win-win to us!
Which Charity Should I Pick?
Not sure where you’d like for us to send your donation if you win? Here are some of our favorite charities we’ve supported in the past. They are all wonderful causes and can truly benefit from 4moms products.
Baby2Baby provides low-income children ages 0-12 with diapers, clothing, and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. They served over 100,000 children in 2015 and this year Baby2Baby helped us distribute over one hundred 4moms rockaRoos to families with newborns.
Operation Shower is an organization that provides baby showers for military families to ease the stress of deployment. We’ve partnered with this amazing organization to donate more than 230 rockaRoos to military families across the country. We were lucky enough to attend five of their showers in 2015.
Baby Buggy provides families in need with essential gear, clothing, products, and services for children 0-14 with the goal of improving their safety, health, and well-being. This June, 4moms supported their Fatherhood Initiative with the donation of 100 breeze playards to help provide safe sleeping spaces to their community.
Another way 4moms Cares gives back is through our growing hospital program. Currently, over 300 Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) use the 4moms mamaRoo as part of their babies’ care. NICUs find the mamaRoo infant seat transformational in the care of their smallest, most fragile patients.
“The mamaRoo is calming because it provides an environment that is similar to still being in utero – babies feel contained, they’re moving, there’s a little bit of sound – and we find that very soothing for our babies.” Alan Lantzy, MD Vice Chair, Pediatrics, West Penn Hospital
We believe that every baby deserves comfort, and strive to make that possible at all hospitals, which is why we offer 4moms discounts to hospitals. We also donate products, both for patient use and for fundraising efforts to these essential hospital programs.
4moms Cares is such an important part of the culture at 4moms, and we’re excited that you’ll be able to join us in giving back this month.
