Everyday as a mother, I am blessed with moments of joy. Starting with their adorable morning stretches all the way to the beautiful contentment displayed on their faces after they fall asleep; I am lucky to be able to enjoy these moments. This past Mother’s Day, I was away from my Mom and it reminded me that I won’t always be able to share these moments with my children. I also realized that sometimes I allow situations to rob me of these moments of joy. I maybe too tired, too busy, or simply not interested enough to appreciate their recent artwork…on my wall, but these situations are within my control and easily remedied by getting some sleep, reducing my commitments, and focusing on what truly matters in life. Unfortunately, some situations are beyond our control like disasters or difficult times such as unexpected job loss. It is very hard to appreciate these special moments of joy when you are wondering how you are going to even take care of your children. So, when I heard about the new partnership between Johnson’s Baby Cares and Save the Children, my heart beamed.
Moments of joy are important to families, especially during times of difficulty and disaster. Our work with Save the Children will help keep families happy and healthy, ensuring they continue to find these joyful moments, no matter the situation.
To assist families, the makers of JOHNSON’S® Baby products, alongside parent company Johnson & Johnson, are making a multi-year, multi-million dollar contribution to Save the Children that will help create and sustain key initiatives. In 2012 we will:
- Donate and distribute thousands of JOHNSON’S® Baby “Care Kits”, providing families with baby care essentials immediately after a disaster. This commitment is an extension of our existing product donation efforts aimed to meet baby care needs in the U.S. and around the world.
- Provide funding that enables Save the Children programming, such as Child Friendly Spaces, which supplies moms and children with safe areas to recover, play and experience the joy of being together as a family following a disaster.
I love when a company, like Johnson’s Baby, will step up and make a difference even in the most basic way. The Baby “Care Kits” will definitely help relieve some of the stress from difficult situations, so families can focus on what’s important, their family. In addition, Johnson’s will also donate $50,000 to Save the Children when they achieve 500,000 views on their “Happy Mother’s Day, Mom — You’re Doing OK” video shown below.
