Save a life for every

pack of Pampers you buy

If you use Pampers, you may have saved a lot of lives already without even knowing it. Yesterday, Salma Hayek announced the launch of the second annual Pampers/UNICEF program to help save moms and newborns around the world—and Cafe Kristen was there (lucky her!).

You can read all about Cafe Kristen's day, her new BFF Salma, and the Pampers/UNICEF initiative on the Healthy Living Buzz.

Here's how the program works: For each pack of Pampers that you buy from now through May 1, 2009, the company will donate the cost of one tetanus vaccine to UNICEF. The vaccine is used to prevent Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus, a preventable disease that claims the lives of approximately 128,000 infants (that's approximately one newborn death every four minutes) and up to 30,000 mothers each year in developing countries.

Here's how you can help: Look for Pampers products that are specially marked One Pack = One Vaccine (participating lines include: Swaddlers and Swaddlers Sensitive diapers, Baby Dry and Cruisers diapers, Easy Ups training pants, and all wipes).

Do you use Pampers? If you don't would you consider switching to help out?
