I cannot believe our baby, Luca, is already 5 weeks old! Even more so, Mike and I could never have imagined the everyday joys he would bring to our lives. We have never felt so blessed and happy, as we treasure each little moment of parenthood day by day.
90 percent of children in the U.S. live in areas at risk of natural disasters...that could potentially take everything away from moms and their babies.

Now that I’m a mom, I’m extra touched and inspired by projects that allow me to help other moms and babies throughout the world. Therefore, I was honored to help launch the JOHNSON’S® BABY CARES campaign in support of Save the Children, which helps to provide funding and resources to ensure families have basic essentials to care for their babies in times of crisis.

I was shocked to learn that according to Save the Children, 90 percent of children in the U.S. live in areas at risk of natural disasters; disasters that could potentially take everything away from moms and their babies. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be in such a situation with Luca. The idea that we could be without the most basic things like soap or diaper cream… it’s heartbreaking.

The bright side of this picture is that we’re all able to do our part to prepare help for a situation like this. As part of my work with the campaign, I’ll be assembling JOHNSON’S® Baby  “Care Kits” filled with JOHNSON’S® BABY products such as wash, lotion, shampoo, powder and diaper cream, which will be sent to families in need, both in the U.S. and around the world, following a disaster.

Johnson's Baby Cares program

Get involved

With your purchase of any JOHNSON’S® Baby product with a 50 cent coupon at retail stores from now until June 10, JOHNSON’S® Baby will donate 25 cents to Save the Children. You can also visit the JOHNSON’S® BABY CARES tab on JOHNSON’S® Baby Facebook page for more information.

And simply spread the word! Creating awareness is often half the battle, so as we approach Mother’s Day, I encourage you to think about the moms and babies throughout the world that may need some extra TLC this year.

Thanks, all.

Hugs,

Hilary
