From February 5 through May 1, 2009, parents in the U.S. and Canada have the opportunity to help UNICEF protect moms and babies around the world against tetanus by simply purchasing specially-marked packages of Pampers diapers and wipes. Each product they buy triggers one life-saving vaccine*. These specially marked packages of diapers and wipes cost the same as traditional products and are available wherever Pampers products are sold. For more information, go to the website.
In addition to product, parents can also redeem a special campaign “baby body suit” or baby body suit using Gifts to Grow points though Pampers.com. Check out Gift To Grow and get your body suit now. I’m so passionate about the new 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine program from Pampers.
I will have to start buying more often because one pack is one life saving vaccine!
Win It! Three of these adorable onesies from Gift To Grow and one coupon for a free jumbo pack of Pampers diapers.

Helping Those in Need
Pampers is committed to improving the lives of babies around the world. Working with parents, together we provide more than $10 million in donations that effect more than 50 million lives each year. Working together with parents and UNICEF, one area we’ve chosen to focus on is newborn tetanus, a major health problem in developing countries. Newborn tetanus claims the lives of more than 140,000 babies each year, but this disease is preventable. If an expectant mother receives the vaccine before she gives birth, both she and her baby will be protected from this disease.
