Birthday Bash Begins!!!

May is the "official" birthday month of ZooNique Baby and we have lots of fun plans in store to celebrate turning 3 years old! Including some fun giveaways and FREE DIAPERS of course!
To start, let me introduce you to my friend Paxton.Isn’t he a little cutie? Yea, we sure think so!

Paxton is the most precious son of a very dear friend I’ve known since high school. (we're just not saying how long that's been!) ;) Pax is part of a pretty amazing family and is special for many reasons, but one is that he has Hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a chronic brain disease in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities of the brain called ventricles. There is no cure and very little medical advancement since the 1950's. Hydrocephalus affects 1 million Americans and 1 in every 500 children are born with it. Children with hydrocephalus will likely grow up into adults who do not have the basic needs we all take for granted, unless we find a cure. The most common treatment for hydrocephalus — and the most common procedure performed by pediatric neurosurgeons in the United States — is surgical implantation of a device called a shunt. A flexible tube and valve system, a shunt drains cerebrospinal fluid from the brain to another part of the body. About 40,000 shunt-related operations are performed every year in the US for hydrocephalus — that averages out to about one every 13 minutes and over 100 every day.

You can learn more by visiting the Hydrocephalus Association and by following their facebook page.

Now, about free diapers...
We want to kick off our birthday month celebration by raising both awareness and funding for the Hydrocephalus Assoc. Paxton currently has a fundraising goal of $2000 and he is less than $500 from his goal! WAY TO GO PAX! Let's help him reach his goal! And to make it even more fun, for any donation amount made to the Hydrocephalus Association via his page you can be entered to win a Mr. Robotics diaper just like Paxton’s! You get to choose the size too!Here’s what you need to do...
* Make your donation here. The money will go directly into his fundraising account and is even tax deductible!

* Come back here and comment that you donated w/ receipt # Make sure to include an email where we can reach you if you win. You can write it like, info (at) zooniquebaby (dot) com if you prefer, just so we have a way to notify you if you win.

* Tell your friends! Seriously, you will want to spread the word on this one! Why? Because, you’re helping Pax and other cuties like him! PLUS, if Pax reaches his goal by May 15th, in addition to the Mr. Robotics diaper one of you will win, we will additionally give away TWO "Summer Fun Prize Packs" valued over $50 each with goodies like a wetbag, diaper, insert, wipes! And you even get to select boy/girl and size if you are a prize pack winner! That also increases your chances of winning since there would be three prizes!
