Throw An Expecting Mom A Baby Sprinkle With Pampers – $300 Gift Card Giveaway

Whether she’s 3 moths early, or 10 years late. Whether he has a young mom or a surrogate. Whether she has special needs or a lot of needs. Every baby is a little miracle, to celebrate, support, and protect. Whether she has one sister or two, every baby deserves to be celebrated in some way. Every mother, whether it’s her first baby or second.

I am one of the rare moms who never had a shower, I was one of those young moms with no family. My husband and I never had a party to celebrate so I wanted to celebrate those moms who are gearing up for baby. Whether it’s a shower or just a sprinkle if you’re a mom already or a first timer Pampers and Our Ordinary Life wants to celebrate you!

This year Pampers is celebrating little miracles everywhere and in doing that they’ve hosted baby showers and daddy cookouts. The showers have been in celebration of moms everywhere and the stories behind them are quite heartwarming. There is a video below that features a om Jessica who’s baby was born too soon. What you don’t know is there was another baby who passed away. Also what you don’t see are all the tears and the fear. This is what I truly love about the Miracle Missions program. This ordinary mom had someone share her story on Pampers Facebook page and I know just how much love went into throwing her that shower, and guess what? Pampers is doing this all year long. They’re simply asking for you to share a story.

Right now Pampers is asking for you to hit the “I support” button and they will help families affected by natural disasters by giving one diaper one pack of wipes and $1 for every person who hits the button. It’s simple, and then share a story. Know someone who has been affected, share the story and you never know who will make your load lighter. It’s a year of miracles after all!

Please visit the Pampers Facebook page and pledge your support.

Giveaway!

I’m a mom who’s never gotten a baby shower and I know there are moms out there too just like me. Do you know a mom who is expected a second, third, etc. baby?  Would you like to nominate her to win a $300 Amex Gift Card to throw her a sprinkle?

    My BF is pregnant and due the end of July with her second child. Her 1st child is 9 yr old so she doesn’t have much for the coming baby! Her friends have gotten her some things but this would really help get her a bigger item she needs or even just to give it to her to use for the baby when he arrives! Would love to surprise her with this she really deserves it!

  2. Dragos says

    I cannot think of anyone more deserving than my wife… I know many men would claim this.. BUT I have every reason to nominate my better half. I am a cancer survivor (at the young age of 26) .. when we found out about my diagnosis we also found out my wife was pregnant with our first. Even through her terrible morning sickness that lasted all 9 months, she NEVER left my bedside at the hospital when I underwent treatment for my osteo-sarcoma.. She pushed me in a wheelchair, and took me to all my doctor appointments and rehab after surgery. She never complained, and always catered to my needs. I can admit I wasn’t the best husband during her first pregnancy, since I couldn’t give her back rubs or a foot massage as others do to their wives.. but I want to show her my gratitude through this testimony.. My wife is pregnant AGAIN Against ALL ODDS!! We are expecting our 2nd miracle (Another princess!) at the end of October. My three girls are my world, and I say it with all my heart.

    One of my best friends is definitely a deserving Mum and I will be throwing one heck of a shower for her.

    Her and her husband have been married for 15years. She was told after several years of trying to get pregnant that they could not find anything wrong but since it had been so long, her chances of getting pregnant were nil.

    They put themselves on the adoption list, but it was going to take years to get a child under the age of 2. Just before Christmas, this past year, they got frustrated with waiting and took themselves off the adoption list and resigned themselves to the fact that they were not going to have children.

    In March, she started feeling awful. She went to the doctor, thinking she had the flu. Well, it was not the flu, she was pregnant!

    She is doing fine. Her and the baby are both healthy. I cannot think of two people who deserve a baby more than them. This baby will be so blessed.

    I cannot wait to have a shower. I am going to make it a co ed shower and it will be a ton of fun!

    I pledged my support to Pamper’s Miracle Mission on their Facebook page.

    I pledged my support on Pampers’ FB page (Alicia Webster). The deserving mom is pregnant for the first time after 10 years of trying. She is employed full-time at a good job, but will have to take some time off when the baby is born. Her husband is unemployed, so she is worried about this.

    I pledged my support of Miracle Missions on the Pampers Facebook page. I’d like to throw a baby shower party for my sister in law . They’re expecting their first blessing and I was just told they’re having triplet. I’m pretty sure they’ll appreciate any help they can get.

    I pledged and Im throwing my friend Jen a baby shower so this would really help

  19. Janice Cooper says

    I pledged my support and I would love to surprise my sister. She recently had her first baby and we did not throw her a shower. I would love to surprise her with some diapers and other essentials for my new precious niece or have a surprise shower: )

  20. Donna B. says

    I pledged your support of Miracle Missions on the Pampers Facebook page for Missions 1 and 2 when they were posted earlier in the campaign, and I just pledged Mission 3.

    I have a friend of mine who’s pregnant and a single mom like me, I’d throw her a baby shower. To make it memorable…hmmm well having a baby shower at all would be memorable for her, but I’d get one of those diaper cakes. I think they’re very memorable and super-cute!

    I’m not sure of the theme, I’d have to do some recon to find out what her thoughts are on the room design. I know the bedding she registered for has a zoo animal theme so something along those lines, I think.

    I know she’d be touched by the gesture and very appreciative of the baby shower and gifts!

  21. Amanda @MommyMandy says

    I’m entering for myself. First off I never got a baby shower with my 2nd daughter, I was told “oh you jsut don’t do that after your first child”
    As you can imagine, the past three years have been a struggle and then with the miscarriage in November I felt like such a failure, like it was my fault, I did something wrong. It was the worst experience I have ever gone through, and no mother should ever experience it.
    Trying to add to your family for some people can be so hard, and some couples never experience being parents.
    When I first saw the new Pampers commercial I cried, and now I cry.
    The miracle I have growing inside me will be our last baby, and I feel so blessed, yet so scared.
    I would love to win this card, and use it to buy a crib and other things we need.

  22. says

    I am already apart of the mission. I would love to throw my sprinkle my friend with gifts. Its hard to throw her a shower since I am in NY and she is in CA. She doesn’t have anything and is scared. I think this would be the perfect pick me up.

    I never had a baby shower either, and I have 3 kids.

  23. says

    My sister is pregnant with her first and trying to get it all together! I would LOVE to sprinkle her like she did me years ago when we brought our twins home from Korea!

  24. says

    Baby showers are so great. I would throw a huge shower for my friend. She is in need of some help right now. As a mom of two kids and having many friends and family members having had babies, I have some tips to have a fun shower on a limited budget. First off, the invitations- I like to use evite or Facebook invitation so it is free. There is no need to waste money sending out invitations with paper and stamps. As for decorations, who doesn’t like a diaper cake? I also like to go to the dollar store and purchase decor for a really great price- who can beat $1? I also like to use things that we already have around the house, or borrow items that family members have for decorations (table centerpieces and other items). Food is always a fun part of a shower. I would do a little hawaain style food. Hawaiian haystacks (cooked rice topped with a chicken and sauce mixture) in addition to various toppings which you build yourself buffet style (cheese, olives, onions, pineapple, hard noodles, tomatoes, carrots, celery, cucumber, bell peppers). The drinks would be water and then a punch mixture that is really good- sherbet ice cream, red fruit punch, ice and Sprite. As for gifts, baby registries are great. And you can never go wrong with diapers. My first baby shower I let everyone know that if they didnt get anything off the registry, diapers were much appreciated. Sure enough I got plenty of diapers. Games- who doesn’t like that game with the clothes pins? You know the game. You can’t say “baby” or the name of the soon to be born baby. It is so funny to see who wins by the end of the shower. I also would put together a memory baby game. I did this for my shower and it was so fun. You go buy a bunch of candy bars with different names that you can incorporate with the baby theme. example- the baby square would say baby’s college tuition and if the person matches up two squares that match, they would get a hundred grand candy bar. It gets so fun and everyone gets really excited.

  25. Mandy says

    My younger sister is preggers and due in 10 weeks with her second and needs so much stuff – a Sprinkle would be JUST PERFECT!

  26. sandy says

    well I have a fiend who is having a baby and would love the help but would do something small for her and she would agree we would do a clothes/toy/diaper drive for joplin tornado victims

  27. Tina M says

    I’d throw a baby shower for my best friend, Jess. She work so hard for her family. I am already apart of the mission.

  28. Jennifer Marie says

    My friend could really use this. She just had her second baby. This one is a boy and her fist was a girl. She really didn’t get a lot of boy items and I would love to give her boy clothes, toys, and lots of diapers/wipes. thanks for the chance!

  29. Jeff says

    I comitted to helping the mission. My mom worked my hours and still made home cooked meals all by herself. She is a most deserving mom. She just got it done instead of complaining.

  30. says

    I pledged my support of Miracle Missions on the Pampers Facebook page as Tofu Fairy. I honestly do not have any pregnant friends right now. I do have a friend who had a baby for her best friend and his life partner so that the two could have a child. If anyone deserved a great shower, it was the three of them, but that’s been a year ago. If they decide to do it again though, I would love to throw them a shower!

  31. Amber says

    My friend Angela deserves a shower for her first baby! I’d like to make it special and let her use the card to have snacks, gifts, color themed decorations, cool games, and gifts for the baby!

  32. Debbie jackson says

    oops sorry, I wasn’t paying attention
    this would be for my sis who is expecting a little girl and i pledged at their site
    djackson1958 at hotmail dot com

  33. Jacob says

    I would do the shower for a young couple I know in which I was the official at their wedding. They really want to start a family but are a little tight right now. I would make it special by inviting friends and family from their wedding that really want to help and support them and have people but the very basic necessities like diapers and soap, etc and I took the pledge at Pampers on Facebook and my homepage is http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002463765436&sk=wall

  34. says

    I know so many deserving moms, I just found out a friend is expecting, I would love to throw her a baby shower and this would allow me to do so! I took the pledge.

  36. karen M says

    I would love to throw my best friend a baby shower, she is expecting number baby number 4. Her family doesn’t live very close, and it would be wonderful to invite friends to share and celebrate the event. I know it would be a big surprise and can’t wait for memories to be made.

  39. Kim says

    My friend REALLY needs the cash – she is about 7 weeks from her due date and they are very broke. They tried for 5 years to get pregnant, so this is a MIRACLE.. but I wish they could enjoy it more by being able to buy more of the things they need. I’d give them the cash – straight up! To buy all the little things that baby requires. :) – and I clicked SUPPORT!

  40. says

    Though I had a shower with my first, I’m not having one with this baby due in 2 weeks. I’d love to give this to my sister-in-law, who’s due in December with twins (yikes! Her first pregnancy too). She and my brother will definitely need this.

  41. Chanelle says

    I would love to throw a shower for my cousin/friend, who is going to be a single mom so she needs some love and support right now. I would make her shower owl-themed (partly because she is a hoot :) and I would use some of the Amex money to purchase a train ticket that would enable her mother to be here for the baby’s birth. Thanks!

  42. Kasey says

    Pledged support – my deserving mom is my friend Christina, who is due sooner than they thought and really, really needs to get some basics and some fun stuff asap!

  43. Debra Hall says

    a friend of mine just had a baby but no shower this would help her buy for baby

  44. says

    I’m going to nominate myself…we’re about to have our fourth baby and I only had a small baby shower with my first. We recently bought our first house and our first new car so with those 2 payments it’s really hard to get all the necessities for the new baby.

    I also pledged my support on Pampers FB page :)

    My sister is a deserving mom, this is her first kid and her hubby is going through med school right now so every little bit helps.

  56. pink flip flops says

    I would give my next door neighbor a baby shower. She and her DH have
    been waiting to adopt a baby girl from Thailand for 3 years and August
    it is finally time to go and fetch her. So I would make it special by
    inviting all her friends and her old college room mates as a huge
    surprise. And have this awesome baby shower so she wants for nothing
    where she flies back from Asia with her little one.

    I pledged my support for the Pampers Campaign!

  58. Eileen says

    I have two daughters due to have babies, one is rather young and baby was very unexpected. They both deserve a shower but after a nephew and girlfriend had a baby VERY early last year and they spent countless miles running back and forth to the NICU for 4 months, Id love to choose a deserving family in the same situation to surprise with some gas cards, a gc for dinner out, and maybe a reasonably prices point and shoot digital camera. The stress on their schedule, emotional and financial lives really was tough on them so I think this would be helpful for some parents of a premie or sick baby who spend a lot of time at the hospital.

  96. barbara wright says

    I pledged my support. I’d give my neighbor a shower. Her daughter is pregnant for the first time and lives on the other side of the country. My neighbor is having a really hard time not being there with her, so I think giving her a baby shower for her grandchild would be wonderful. She would get to ooh and aah over all the presents, and then when the baby is born,she could bring it all out there and they could ooh and aah over it together and she could tell her daughter all about the great baby shower she had. I’ve even figured out how to find all the people I should invite!

  97. says

    My friend has need of everything. This is her first and she’s going it alone. I’d love to help her in any way I can. I pledged today.

  98. Terry C says

    My deserving mom is my niece who just had her little boy. After struggling to get pregnant, having a miscarriage and losing a baby in her 5th month of pregnancy, he is a little miracle. I made the pledge.
