I lost my son, Dominic, when I was 8 months pregnant with him. There were cysts on his brain and the doctors believe he suffered a brain bleed. The next fall I participated in my local March of Dimes. Many of my friends showed up for support and it really helped my healing process to know I wasn't alone.

Helping premature babies is amazing. This organization is amazing. It takes a strong individual to watch their baby begin their life like this. So this organization is great to help them through it. I definitely support

A few years back I attended a March of Dimes event where I represented a little girl who was born premature. I was able to raise over $200 to donate directly to March of Dimes and was so happy to do so. The organization has helped so many families during hard times. It is a very useful and helpful organization.

One of the main way the March of dimes reduces birth defects is to suggest to the woman that she get an abortion if a birth defect is detected. This includes babies suspected of having downs syndrome. This is plain disgusting. March of dimes needs to focus on helping, not hurting babies.

My neighbors have a March of Dimes benefit every year and it's one of the most inspiring things. They donate an incredible amount time and money to organize a huge event that has raised THOUSANDS of dollars!!!

This is a great charity! I think it's great when people help other people in need. I personally have never dealt with them but always see the boxes to donate money and things like that

After doing a bit of research myself, I found that the claim that the organization is called "March of Dimes" because only a dime out of every dollar is donated is false. Actually, out of every dollar donated to the March of Dimes, $0.76 is spent on research and programs, which is a lot, considering the cost it takes to keep the foundation up and running. Not to mention the free and helpful brochures and information passed out to parents and parents to be, including myself, which give you helpful nutrition and health information to prevent premature birth during pregnancy. This organization actually SAVES LIVES.
It is called March of Dimes, because folks were encouraged to donate dimes for charity to this organization back in 1938, when it was founded by President Franklin D Roosevelt, a victim of infantile paralysis. This organization has saved the lives of many premature babies and babies with birth defects. You can thank March of Dimes for newborn screening tests, polio shots and the extensive nutrition information you received during pregnancy. Without March of Dimes, we wouldn't have this.
I encourage everyone to read the annual report. It explains exactly what this organization does. http://www.marchofdimes.com/mission/annual-report.aspx

Great charity to give babies a fighting chance. The fact that my brother was born premature encourages me to donate and walk for the March of Dimes. I try to donate atleast twice a year.
