One corporate initiative I’ve admired recently is Pampers’ Miracles Missions in celebration of its 50th birthday. It’s a “pay-it-forward program designed to deliver acts of kindness to little miracles while challenging the public – like you – to support others within their very own communities."
If you haven’t already, I strongly encourage you to check out Pampers’ facebook page, where you can pledge to join a miracle mission yourself! If enough people pledge on Miracle Mission #2, Pampers will throw Father’s Day cook-outs for dads and babies across the country… (And a side note: You are entered to win a year’s supply of Pampers diapers and wipes when you pledge.)
Back to that trip up north. Pampers had sent me a $50 American Express gift card that arrived just in time to take with me for a pay-it-forward mission.
While “living” in the hospital much of the week, I realized there weren’t a whole lot of entertainment options. At the end of the hall on my mom’s floor was a sitting room of sorts – a bunch of scattered REALLY outdated magazines haphazardly spread around. So I decided to “pretty-fy” one of the tables with a silk plant and a basket with a few magazines (including a children’s mag), puzzle books, pencils, etc. A simple thing that hopefully made at least one person’s life a little more interesting and/or bearable during a stressful life period.
What would YOU do with $50?
Pampers wants to send YOU a $50 American Express gift card, too! For a chance to pay it forward:
