This symbolic donation makes the perfect gift for any occasion. Share a truly thoughtful gift with that someone special. Baby's First Day Outside NCIU (Symbolic Charitable Donation) Baby’s First Day Outside NICU - Each year, 380,000 babies are born too soon in the United States. For these families, the reality is their baby’s first home is the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The stay can last days, weeks or even months. When a baby is discharged from the NICU, the first day out is cause for major celebration. Your symbolic donation of $50 makes that moment even better by supporting March of Dimes research, education and advocacy to fight prematurity. It’ll help us give every baby a fighting chance to leave the hospital. Prematurity is the #1 killer of babies in the United States. We are working to change that and help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. From polio to prematurity the March of Dimes has focused on researching the problems that threaten our children and finding ways to prevent them. Please note: Delivery of the donation certificate will be via the email address on file with your eBay account, where you can download it, print it or email it as a gift. About March of Dimes March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. We work to end premature birth and other problems that threaten our babies. We help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. If something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families. We research the reasons why babies are born too soon or very sick and work on preventions.   Our Legacy For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs. In 1938, President Franklin Roosevelt's personal struggle with polio led him to create the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis at a time when polio was on the rise. Better known as the March of Dimes, the foundation established a polio patient aid program and funded research for vaccines developed by Jonas Salk, MD and Albert Sabin, MD. These vaccines effectively ended epidemic polio in the United States. Preventing Birth Defects Following the eradication of polio in the United States, the foundation turned its focus to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screening, and to educate medical professionals and the public about best practices for healthy pregnancy. We have supported research for surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distress and helped initiate the system of regional neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies. Our recent Folic Acid Campaign achieved a dramatic reduction in the incidence of neural tube defects, birth defects of the brain and spine. Fighting Premature Birth Since 2003, our fight to save babies has been strongly characterized by our Prematurity Campaign. The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and the March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity.
