There are many reasons why companies and individuals would want to support the March of Dimes and join their March for Babies event every April. The work they do is extremely crucial in helping premature babies survive. Money raised by the March of Dimes helps babies in the NICU by giving them access to the critical care and special treatments they so desperately need. While the research funded by their efforts helps future families and babies get access to information and care.
eMedia Design Company has a BIG reason to raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes. eMedia’s Founder and CEO, Essa Naser, and his family have a very personal connection and appreciation for the foundation. His daughter Kaya was born 4 months early, and spent over 5 months in the hospital. This was a long and tough time for Kaya and the Naser family, but the NICU nurses were extremely supportive through it all. Kaya is now a happy and healthy 5-year-old deserving of a superhero cape when she walks in the March for Babies event –– and every day for that matter.
This year, the entire company has jumped on board to help raise money, awareness and walk together to support the March of Dimes in the March for Babies on April 30th. “It’s something we’ve done for a few years now, and is becoming a tradition. This is the first year we are truly coming together as Team eMedia” says Essa. “I could not be more proud of everyone in this company for their participation and enthusiasm to help this cause”. On top of putting together a team to walk and raise money, eMedia is donating time to help redesign this year’s new event brochures. If you’ve received a brochure in the mail over the past year, visited the March for Babies website, or seen purple event banners throughout downtown, you may have noticed a familiar face –– it’s Kaya! Because of her incredible survival story, Kaya was selected as the March of Dimes National Baby in 2016. She has been featured across all of their marketing materials and will continue to be featured throughout the year.
