MI-AIMH, along with the other 16 League States, will be focused on celebrating babies during October 18 – October 25, 2013. Each chapter, IMH program, etc. is encouraged to host an event, big or small, to keep the baby in mind and celebrate all the hard work we do on behalf of babies, toddlers, and their families.
Southwest Solutions has organized a toy drive for children 0-6, in addition to planning a brown bag lunch to view the documentary "Babies". This is a perfect example of the type of event that Celebrate Babies! week is all about. We encourage you to take time out of your usual schedule, join with your colleagues and celebrate the incredible work that you do, supporting and advocating for the families of infants and toddlers.
