When I think of first moments and my children I am flooded with so many memories; holding my first son in my arms for the first time and resting my tiny twins in each arm will be moments I don’t need a photograph to remember they are just always in my mind. Since then there have been many times I have recorded first moments either through my blog, or photographs. I remember my little boy walking into the maternity ward holding his Daddy’s hand ready to meet his new brothers, his smile as he looked into their cot will stay with me forever. I remember Arthur learning to clap hands and his excitement when he realised he was doing it right. Then I think of Brandon learning to crawl so he could follow his brother around. So many first moments have stayed with me and there are still so many to come, my twins first steps, Lucas’ first day at school; there are so many for us all to experience.
Luckily we live in a country that has a fantastic free healthcare service. We easily take for granted the things we have access to that keep our children safe and well. Sadly that isn’t the case everywhere which is why Pampers and UNICEF have been working together one their 1 pack =1 vaccine campaign. For every specially marked pack of Pampers bought, Pampers will donate the cost of one vaccine to help UNICEF in the fight against Maternal and Newborn Tetanus. Since 2006, the campaign has funded an incredible 300 million vaccines, eliminating the disease in 15 countries – that’s another five countries since the campaign last year! But there are still babies in 24 of the world’s poorest countries at risk.
Emma Bunton has been supporting the campaign for two years and has recently visited Madagascar so she could see the changes made by the campaign and by parents here in the UK showing their support by buying a pack of Pampers. There is a lovely video showing some clips of her time over there. It is amazing to think what a difference it has made, it is something so simple that we couldn’t even imagine having to worry about!
Pampers will donate a vaccine for every like, share or view of the First Times video and it will definitely bring a smile to your face so please give it a watch:
This is NOT a sponsered post I just think it is a a great campaign.
