NEW YORK, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mommy Nearest, the most comprehensive resource for family-friendly fun nationwide, is proud to announce a yearlong partnership with the March of Dimes Foundation as their first-ever National Awareness Partner. In addition, Mommy Nearest is a media partner for the upcoming March of Dimes' March for Babies walks and will incorporate their mobile technology and local expertise to make these walks more interactive for participants.
Joshua Milstein, CEO of Mommy Nearest, said, "The March of Dimes has been saving the lives of children and helping families since the FDR administration and we're excited to extend our technology and media platforms to help spread awareness of their mission."
Premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy) is the #1 killer of babies. In the United States, about 380,000 babies are born too soon each year – that's 1 in 10. The money raised by the March of Dimes supports lifesaving research, services, education, and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.
As part of the partnership, Mommy Nearest will make a donation to the March of Dimes for every download and registration on the free Mommy Nearest app. The app, which re-launched in 2017, is considered a 'Yelp for parents,' and since Mommy Nearest's mission is making the lives of parents easier, this partnership will bolster the goals of both organizations.
