Monticello, NY – The ND Pro Media Community Give Back Program Fund has recently awarded over $18,000 to the March of Dimes to support their mission of helping moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. The $18,000 grant represents proceeds raised during the Faeries for Babies 2015 Charity Calendar Contest.
About The Faeries for Babies 2015 Charity Calendar:
Over 166 children participated and had their photos taken dressed as faeries in hopes to be featured in the 2015 Faeries for Babies Charity Calendar. After the children had their faerie portraits taken, their images were placed online for voting. Friends and family members paid $1 per vote in hope that their faerie would be one of the top 13 children featured in the calendar. Calendar sales have begun and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the March of Dimes.
