Today I have a lovely way for parents and carers to help support the work of Pampers and UNICEF who are protecting the world’s amazing babies against newborn tetanus.
Did you know – babies can help save lives by doing nothing more than wearing Pampers. Because 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 means that anyone can get involved as even if your child is out of the nappy stage I don’t know a parent who doesn’t still carry wipes around with them!
Amazingly the 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’re halfway towards their goal of global elimination! Thanks to the campaign an estimated 500,000 newborn babies have been saved and a vaccine has reached a mother and her baby every second.
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.
How can you help make a difference?
It is so easy to get involved in this campaign and eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus:
*share a photo of your amazing baby with #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUNICEF, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and Pampers will donate the equivalent cost of one vaccine!
*1 pack= 1 life-saving vaccine: for each purchase of a Pampers nappies and wipes with the UNICEF logo
*donate to UNICEF: by becoming a monthly donor to UNICEF today you can join thousands of other parents who donate every month to improve the lives of these vulnerable children
