I guess until you have a premature baby that has spent multiple weeks in a hospital in Neo-natal ICU that you never really have an understanding of what they do. If you haven't been in this situation or had a relative that has you should really get your facts straight. Otherwise shut your mouth until you can comeback & say you have been through this experience. Trust me your whole world changes.

I am baffled by MOD's fund raising scheme. I received a bunch of junk -- calendar, return address labels, bookmarks, note paper, none of which I want -- and am promised a fleece blanket when I send my gift.
I am more interested in the work they do.

These fund-raising practices are negative in my view.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

eliminate the practice of mailing "enticements' for donations.

I know this charity has been around forever, but how can I, in good conscience, donate to a charity where the president of that charity makes over $600,000 per year? It's simply unconscionable.

I used to donate to this charity until I found a percentage of proceeds goes to doing lab tests on animals. Search it on Google. Never will I ever donate money to this organization again.

I was registered myself and a team to do the March for Babies walk in Las Vegas on March 24,2010. I had to withdraw myself and the team due to a conflict of interest. Here is an organization who prides themselves for the work that they do to prevent infant mortality yet their tax statements show that they are a sponsor to planned parenthood who pride themselves in killing babies. The two don't go together.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that the truth has been revealed.
