GIVEAWAY-Pampers-Little Miracle Mission & Wants YOU to Pay-It-Forward***CLOSED


Pampers is working hard to make this world a better place for every little miracle.

Little Miracle Missions is a program that encourages people to help one another in fun, unexpected ways. From time to time we'll suggest a way for you to support a little miracle. Gather some friends to join the cause and Pampers will complete their own larger mission reaching families across the country. Think of it as a chain of good started by you.

Once you finish your mission, share your story and photos of how you inspired us all.

Every time you do some good you can enter The Little Miracles sweepstakes for a chance to win free diapers and wipes for a year*. *Limit one entry per person per day.

Everyone can easily participate in a small way by logging on to Pampers Facebook page ( by hitting ‘like’ and then going to the Miracle Missions tab and committing to Missions. As a side note, anyone who pledges is automatically entered to win a year’s supply worth of Pampers diapers and wipes (and that can definitely help someone in a big way!).

Independentmami received a $50 gift card to Pay-It-Forward. I did not even think twice of who I would help. My family and I are always helping others with money, food, or services. But I had one family in particular that we really wanted to help. My son sings in the church youth choir. He loves to sing. THe youth choir always him to express himself, grow as an individual, and also learn how a team works together. I am so thankful for these individuals who take time every week to practice with our kids for 2 hours a week with no pay. They are even taking the kids to a trip to New York this summer. The are exposing them to culture, and new places. One of his youth leaders got into a serious accident and has been disabled for a couple of months. The entire church is helping them out while he recovers. Well his wife is pregnant and is ready to pop. I know as an expecting parent, (You heard right, I'm pregnant!!), one of the first thing you think about is all the pampers you have to purchase. So we decided to use the entire $50 giftcard on pampers, so Tom will have one less worry when the baby comes. The kids and parents are putting together a baby shower for them as well. How would you Pay-It-Forward in your community?
I have a $50 giftcard for 1 Independentmami reader. How to enter:

Mandatory and only entry-
1) Tell me in details -How will you use this $50 gc to Pay-It-Forward? Who will you help? Where would you help out?

***Disclosure-I received a $50 gc to use as a Pay-It-Forward. No monetary compensation was received. These are my honest opinions.

My best friend has been trying to adopt for about 8 years. She is going to finally have her wish come true this month (hopefully, it's tentative as the mother has the chance to change her mind). I would love to use this to help buy some baby shower gifts for her. She has been dreaming of a baby shower for so long!

I recently heard from a church friend that one of our members suffers from cancer. She is a single mom with one toddler and a 7 yr old. I'd like to give her, hopefully with coupons help to stretch $50, several gift baskets with all necessities and groceries. Thank you for giving the chance to help someone in need of our community.

My mother died a few years ago from breast cancer that metastisized. Before she died however she received some great care from some caring workers at my town's local Hospice. They did a fantastic job. I've donated when I can to the hospice so they can continue they're phenomonal work. I'd use this gc to make a donation to my local hospice on their website to do my small part to make sure they can continue helping others.

I would buy supplies to send to the victims of the recent tornadoes. If I pair coupons with store sales, I will be able to make $50 go pretty far.

I would donate diapers to a home in our town that houses pregnant teens who have been kicked out by their parents. They really need the help!

My sister recently had her first baby. I would love to help out by buying diapers and other necessities for my new adorable niece :)

I’d give this GC to my cousin who is going to have a baby in Oct. He is only 17. When he told us he is going to get married last year. All of my family told him ” Don’t do it !” Yet, he got married and now they are expecting a kid. He is just like a star on 16 and pregnant. I think they could use all the help we could give them.

My husband works with a young woman who as 2 year old...her husband has been out of work for 6 months...she is working 2 jobs to support them
I will give the card to her

Lauren C said...

Give this card to my grandma, she is still working at the age of 72 and with this card it will take some stress off of her. I have always been there for her and help her out with anything I can, and with this card would be even a greater opportunity to help her out even more.

I would donate to the shelter for abused and battered women to help women who have young children to help out with diapers or any other toiletries required for little ones

I would buy diapers for my friends son- he is 5 months old. They are really in need and if you read this-they could use your prayer. The mom had one eye removed about 2 years ago b/c she has a rare form of ocular melaoma-she is only 30 years old. She then had a son- he is now 5 months old and the cancer has returned- to her liver. She needs all the support we can give her. please add her to your fb
fb- benefit for tiffany blair

This is her story:
Tiffany was diagnosed in August 2009 with a rare form of cancer called Ocular Melanoma. This is a very rare type of cancer of the eye. Doctors told her at the time that due to the size of the tumor the best course of action was enucleation, or removal of the eye. Tiffany handled all of this with amazing grace and strength. She had a prosthetic eye made and adapted amazingly quickly. Her insurance would not cover the cost of the eye, as it was deemed to be “cosmetic”, and she had to pay out-of-pocket for this. However, scans revealed no signs of cancer anywhere else in her body and she was deemed to be “cancer free”, and was told she just needed follow-up CAT scans every 6 months for the first 3 years.

She had a beautiful baby boy Dylan in January 2011. During her pregnancy she was unable to have the CT scans completed. She had her most recent scan March 2011. It showed the cancer had returned to her liver and spleen. To make matters worse, she lost her health insurance the day after she learned of this diagnosis. Thankfully, Tiffany has been able to secure insurance from the “high risk pool” in Texas, and her coverage will be effective as of May 1st. However, the premiums and deductible are extremely high. In addition, treatment options are very limited. We are in the process of trying to research the best options quickly. It appears very likely that she will have to travel out-of-state to receive at least some of her treatments. There is a doctor in Pennsylvania that has some potentially promising treatments. We are not sure at this time what all treatment is going to consist of, it is constantly evolving.

Thank you so much,

my postal carrier's a single mom with a bad back and young kids. i'd buy groceries for her, come over so she could rest in bed, and spend the day with the kids cooking casseroles together to stock up her freezer.
