All babies are amazing, aren’t they? They bring their own special form of sparkle and magical happiness to everyone that is around them, and of course, they always know how to somehow put a smile on your face or make you laugh. But did you know that babies can also help save lives by doing nothing more than wearing Pampers? Yes, this is correct because now Pampers donates 1 vaccine against maternal and newborn tetanus for every pack of Pampers nappies and wipes sold through the “1 Pack = 1 Vaccine” Pampers-UNICEF campaign.
This campaign is now in its 11th year, and during that time, amazing babies around the world have helped Pampers and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 19 countries with only 19 more to go, they are halfway towards their goal of global elimination! How amazing is that?
Thanks to the support of families, since the Pampers-UNICEF “1 Pack = 1 Vaccine” campaign began, an estimated 500,000* newborn babies have been saved and a vaccine has reached a mother and her baby every second.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?
There are lots of ways that we can all support this important campaign! If you share a photo of your amazing baby with #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUNICEF, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, Pampers will donate the equivalent cost of one vaccine! Fantastic right?
This year, celebrity mum and former Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh is supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign. Kimberley says:
“I feel hugely honoured to be supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign in its 11th year. As a mum to Bobby, and expecting my second child later this year, I feel great empathy with other mothers around the world who, just as I do, want nothing more than to deliver a happy, healthy baby. The reason I’m so passionate about this campaign is that mums and dads here in the UK can make a very real difference by doing nothing more than buying the Pampers that they need for their little ones. It’s phenomenal and makes me feel very proud of what we can achieve together.”
WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO TO HELP?
As well as sharing a photo of your amazing baby, there are other ways that we can all help to work together to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus:
- Buy a Pampers pack with the UNICEF logo (1 pack = 1 life-saving vaccine)
- Donate to UNICEF: you can become a monthly donor to UNICEF today and join thousands of other parents who donate every month to improve the lives of these vulnerable children
I would love if you can join us too! Together, with Pampers and UNICEF we can help protect the world’s amazing babies against newborn tetanus. To find out more, visit their website HERE.
