U.S. Faces Birth Defects Crisis, Ways to Help

Posted: Updated:

The United States is facing a health care crisis when it comes to birth defects.

A baby is born with serious medical problems every 4-1/2 minutes.

That's one case for every 33 babies that are born.

So as we approach Mother's Day and Father's Day a national effort is underway to fund more research.

There are several ways you support the campaign against with birth defects.

You can donate directly to the March of Dimes.

But you can you can shop or do business with a large group of companies that are part of the effort.

They include Farmers Insurance, K-Mart, Mudpie, First Response, Famous Footwear and many others.

They will donate a part of the proceeds to the campaign.

You can also post a recipe or a picture, from your Mother's or Father's Day celebration, at Martha Stewart Living.

If you use the hash tag, "imborntoinspire", $10 will be donated to the cause.
