There are many families who are blessed with healthy, full-term babies. There are also many families who face pregnancy complications, earlier-than-expected deliveries, and babies who need weeks or months of special neonatal care. The March for Babies campaign from the March of Dimes gives all of us a chance to give back to an organization with a history of success in preventing birth defects and prematurity.

You might remember this campaign as WalkAmerica, but the organization has rebranded it this year and stepped up its use of social networking as a fundraising tool. You can sign-up to walk online as a team or an individual, add a badge or widget to your website and share pictures from the walk via Flickr.

Walks take place across the United States in April and May. Money raised will support research, services, education and advocacy that helps ensure all babies get a healthy start.
