MARCH OF DIMES
The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. March of Dimes was founded in 1938 by Franklin D. Roosevelt, but was originally known as the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The March of Dimes Mission is “To improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.”
UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, was created after World War II to provide emergency aid to children in Europe and Asia. Today, UNICEF works in more than 150 countries and territories—supported entirely with voluntary contributions. Across the globe, wherever vulnerable children are struggling to survive, UNICEF is there with medicine, vaccines, clean water, and nutrition. Whatever vital help struggling children need, UNICEF will supply. Over the years, UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s mission through education, advocacy, and fundraising in the United States.
