Pampers Unicef Campaign - 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine


I am helping raise awareness for these because it is important causes that I fully back and want to do my bit in helping spread the word and also joining in the campaigns myself. As I am doing my bit, please keep reading to find out why and how you can join in too!

If you are a parent, then you will no doubt heard of Pampers nappies. By far my favourite and the only nappies I have ever used on my baby. For as long as I can remember I have always seen adverts, some of which can be really upsetting on how if you buy Pampers, for each packet they will give 1 vaccine to the charity Unicef who provide vaccines in poorer countries who don't have proper health care like we are fortunate to have.

So a little bit more about the back round of this all, Pampers have been doing this campaign annually since 2006, so this is their 9th. It has funded over 300 million vaccines, eliminating disease is 15 countries. Which is just an outstanding amount. But there are still babies in over 24 poor countries who are still at risk.

Do you remember when those firsts you had with your child? I do and they are the best moments of my life, and I will never forget them. Many of you may be aware that Corey was a premature baby and he was very poorly in hospital for the first few weeks of his life. But I remember the moments when he was like 2 weeks old and got to wear his first baby grow and stop being a little naked baby or the first time he actually got to feed from a bottle. That moment was one of the most precious to me, I got to feed him that bottle and here is that picture:

As for Christmas my favourite time of year - Corey was born 6 days before so his very first was spent in hospital non the less. But the year after, we got to celebrate his first Christmas at home. It was a great day and I have this beautiful picture of us two that is still by far one of my favourites ever that I will cherish forever.

All the other firsts too which I don't have a record of but first words, first steps, first everything. Every child, no matter whether they are your first or last - those firsts are just magical every time. Something to cherish, but firsts last for a lifetime. I am 21 and I still have firsts that I will take, like first (and hopefully only) marriage, maybe first degree etc.

The unfortunate thing is many children out there don't get any firsts because their lives are taken too early, for many reasons all over the world. But by the help of Pampers and Unicef, these poor countries will receive help to fight the main causes of child death of diseases which can be prevented by vaccinations. We all make sure our children get the vaccinations that our NHS provides, just encase to give them the chance and help them fight against nasty stuff we would never wish upon anyone, even our worst enemy.

These children everywhere need help, our help. We may not be able to ever come to world peace, even if we ever do, unfortunately death will still be a part of life. But we need to help charities to help fight illnesses and even create cures. One day we can hope this is all possible to help give people a fighting chance of prolonging lives to be healthy like we all want to be.

Now Emma Button - the famous Spice Girl, amazing designer and brilliant mum is actually the Ambassador of this particular campaign for the second year in a row. This is a 2 minute video of Emma explaining a bit more about the campaign and see some of the amazing work that has come out of helping some babies in Madagascar through the help of Pampers campaign:

Here is a another great video on Pampers YouTube, of many wonderfully cute babies having some of their firsts, please take a moment to have a quick view as it will make you smile. But whilst watching, remember the realisation of some babies that don't get their firsts like these, it is a heart breaking thought.

For every like or share of this video, Pampers will donate 1 vaccine. So think 100,000 likes means 100,000 vaccines. So please I ask of you to quickly give this video a like (and share) to help save a babies life.

Here is a little collage of some more precious moments with Corey over the years. I am so lucky I have been able to watch him grow and have these moments that I shall cherish forever with many more to come :) From that little baby above having his first bottle by me his mummy, to pictures from the past years. Not all are some of his firsts, but all great memories we have created and each pictures has a different reason to why I love him so much :)

If you can share this post with someone too whether it be by email, social media via Twitter, Facebook etc then it will mean someone else can read this and be aware of the good work that is going on in the world and maybe they will like the video and help donate a vaccine to save a babies life. It doesn't take long and won't even take a few minutes of your time so please I ask you to like and share to help a baby, so every baby gets the chance to have their firsts and share it with their parents.

Remember that every 1 pack of Pampers you buy in any shop, will be 1 vaccine for a baby! 

I would love to hear about your most precious first moments with your child or children? :)

Also a very big thank you for taking the time to read this if you managed the whole way through to this point. I appreciate this is a very long post but I hope you took a moment to just like the video and help save a life - myself, Pampers and Unicef will be very grateful if you can :) 

Love, Gemma xo
