Make An Impact with Kmart & March of Dimes

This post is sponsored by Kmart.
When was the last time you tried to style a t-shirt? And I’m not talking about just any old tee. I’m talking about a t-shirt with a very special message. One that encourages us to “Make An Impact” in the lives of our little ones. As most of you know, I’m not a mama. But, I am a proud aunt and godmother. And I care about my babies with all of my corazon and most importantly—their health. That’s why I was super proud to rock this new March of Dimes/Kmart t-shirt exclusively designed by celebrity fitness star Jillian Michaels! You’ll even have a chance to win your own shirt below.

For the 32nd consecutive year, Kmart is supporting the March of Dimes. It’s also their 23rd year as national sponsor of the annual March for Babies® walks. And this year, they have teamed up with Jillian to kick-off its 2015 fundraising campaign.

March of Dimes does amazing work in helping moms have healthy full-term pregnancies and researching the problems that threaten the health of babies. The funds raised by Kmart (more than $125 million over 31 years) will help support the teams of scientists who are working hard to discover the causes of premature birth and develop innovative treatments at five March of Dimes Prematurity Research Centers.

My nephew Nathan (the cutie I’m holding below) was born a few weeks prematurely. My sister-in-law took amazingly good care of herself and she was still faced with the thought of him not being fully developed or having issues with his hearing. I couldn’t even imagine how scared she was or what our life would be like without him. Today, I’m happy to report he’s a healthy two-and-half-year-old. Unfortunately, not all moms and their babies are this lucky. That’s why I’m more than happy to support this amazing cause.

    So glad that your nephew is happy and healthy. Thank you for supporting the March of Dimes! I lead a team in my local March for Babies each year. I walk because I have lost three babies to premature birth. I walk because my heart has been touched by the many preemie heroes and angel babies in my life.I walk for all my friends who have experienced problem pregnancies and delivered healthy babies thanks in part to the medical discoveries of the March of Dimes.

    I love that Kmart is supporting the March of Dimes. My daughter was preemie at 2lbs. and I have walked before with March of Dimes in the past for her. It’s close to my heart.

    Babies/kids are our future. Future politicians, future doctors and scientists so we need them to grow healthy and strong! Would proudly wear March of Dimes tees.

    I would love one of these shirts to help spread awareness. I love Jillian Michaels and I’m so glad she’s helping the cause. I don’t have personal experience with march of dimes, but I love to support organizations for kids.

    After my daughter died of SIDS 3 years ago, I asked for donations to March of Dimes, not flowers. It’s held a special place in my heart. A lot of people don’t know they also support SIDS research.

    This would mean so much to me as I love the March for Babies walk. Our daughter was born 2 months prematurely and had so many medical problems.I met so many other moms when she was in the NICU whose children also had difficulties due to premature births. Today my daughter is a healthy little girl but I walk it every year in honor of those mothers who were not as lucky as I was.
