A Kmart & March of Dimes Collaboration + A Giveaway! #TeamKmart


"I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Kmart & March of Dimes.  I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation."  #TeamKmart

 


I'm sure you have been to Kmart before, and you may already know what the March of Dimes is, but did you know that Kmart is the top corporate fundraiser for the March of Dimes? And did you know that they have teamed up with celebrity fitness icon, mom, and Kmart ambassador Jillian Michaels for their 2015 fundraising campaign? I adore Jillian Michaels so this made me excited.  Any funds raised by Kmart will help support the scientists and people working to discover the cause of premature birth and help find treatments at five March of Dimes Prematurity Research Centers!

I think it's great that Kmart is support the March of Dimes for the 32nd year in a row!  They are also a sponsor of the annual March for Babies® walks that happen in 700 different communities across the country.  But why am I telling you all of this? Well, there's a way that you can help out and support this amazing cause.  Now through June 20th, Shop Your Way members and Kmart customers can actually support the campaign by  purchasing Kmart's collectible puppy figurine which is available in-store or online for $5, with $1 being donated to the March of Dimes.  You can also contribute in-store at any Kmart or online at Kmart.com/MarchofDimes, with 100% of funds raised going to benefit the March of Dimes. Kmart is so appreciative of Shop Your Way members that give back, that they are sending a coupon for 5% back in points on your next qualifying in-store or online merchandise purchase! 

More than $125 million has been raise by Kmart over the past 31 years.  Thanks to that, the preterm birth rate in the US has actually been reduced over the last seven years which helps save an estimated $12 billion in health care costs.   Thanks to the money raised it's helped moms get the best information on healthy pregnancy and delivery and overcome substance abuse with community outreach programs.  In fact, all of these efforts have increased access to prenatal care including mobile clinics and transportation to doctors.   Not to mention, generations of parents have become educated on the value of vaccination.  I also think it's great that they've been able to fight for better newborn screening standards in different states across the United States.



So what about this giveaway? Well, two of you will have the chance to win 1 of 2 exclusively designed Jillian Michaels/March of Dimes t-shirts.  Contest entrants are only eligible to win once per sweepstakes, per household as part of a campaign sponsored by Influence Central.
