#BlanketChange | March of Dimes
In 2020 the U.S. is still among the most dangerous developed nations for a woman to give birth. And it’s even more dire for moms and babies of color. This is a health crisis that has only intensified with the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why March of Dimes and partners across the country are demanding #BlanketChange to improve the health of moms and babies. Join the movement and raise your voice by posting on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram with #BlanketChange.
Your donation today can help us provide black and brown pregnant women and families in the NICU with critical support and resources during this global pandemic.
