For every sling purchased, we donate $10 to The March of Dimes!
At Comfy Joey, we want to give back! We couldn't think of a better organization to make a commitment to!
About The March of Dimes:
One in 10 babies is born premature, That number is shocking. However, many people don't even realize that premature birth is the #1 killer of babies. The March of Dimes is making smart investments in game-changing research. They're raising awareness and are providing support for parents with babies in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU).
In case you're unfamiliar with the organization, the March of Dimes was founded in 1938 after President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Americans to chip in whatever dimes they could spare (which is why we're called "the March of Dimes") to help fund a cure for polio. With that funding, Dr. Jonas Salk and Dr. Albert Sabin developed a vaccine for polio, ending a major epidemic and saving tens of millions of people from paralysis.
Now, their focus is on premature babies. They've already funded research that helped develop critical newborn screening tests, helped educate expectant mothers on the benefits of taking folic acid and they're helping to fight the Zika virus.
