The Car: 1994 Ford F-350

This commercial bucket truck is part of the well known Ford F-series. Ford produced the first series of this truck in 1948! These trucks have been the best selling vehicle overall in the US since 1986. They are currently producing the 13th generation.

The F-350 is only available for commercial use, and is a part of the ninth generation of this iconic Ford series.  This particular vehicle is a bucket truck, which has a range of commercial uses. Some of the functions include electric utility, construction, forestry and landscaping, harvesting fruit, and fire rescue.

This F-350 had an even better use — the owner donated this vehicle to March of Dimes.

The Charity: March of Dimes

Did you know that around half a million babies are born with birth defects, or prematurely in the US? March of Dimes fights premature birth, and works to support the health of all mothers and babies.

March of Dimes actually began with President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s struggle with polio. This led to the creation of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, which we know today as March of Dimes. They successfully cured polio, and now fight against premature birth and birth defects.

March of Dimes works locally, with community programs in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. These programs also focus on marginalized populations, who are more likely to experience health inequities.

They also have six research centers dedicated to ending prematurity, in the US and in England. These combined efforts of interdisciplinary research and community outreach help reduce risk and care for moms and babies, but they still need help.

A Welcome Ray of Sunshine

1980 triumph spitfire front April 24, 2015
Author: Lisa Crowell

The March of Dimes received a bit of Florida sunshine this month with the donation of a beautiful, yellow 1980 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Coupe. Proceeds from the sale of this little gem will help fund research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies lives from premature birth and birth defects.

The Triumph 1500, originally introduced at the London Motor Show in 1921, was designed by Giovanni Michelotti for Standard-Triumph as a way to compete in the small sports car market that had recently opened around that time. This particular Spitfire model was one of five manufactured 1962-1980. The two-seat, English sports car, was the last and highest produced Spitfire model manufactured during the eight-year run with 95,829 cars hitting the showroom floor 1974-1980.

The 1980 model was the last and the heaviest of the entire run, weighing in at 1,875 lb. Base prices were $5,995 in the US.3 The last Spitfire rolled off the assembly line in August 1980, shortly before the factory closed. It was never sold and is now displayed at the British Motor Heritage museum at Gaydon.

Learn More About Noah

Written by guest blogger: Amanda M.

In early September 2009 my fiance and I found out we were having a beautiful baby boy. I remember sitting in the exam room listening to his heart beat on the ultra sound thinking about how amazing those few quick beats sounded. It was the best thirty seconds of my life followed by worst 1 minute of my life when the nurse explained to us all the things that could go wrong in the next 7 months or so before he was born; things like Spina Bifida, Fragile X syndrome and many more.

In March 23, 2006 I had Noah, a beautiful baby boy perfect in every way, but I couldn’t help but think about all those babies that were not born that way. I remember going into the nursery where there was this small baby born weeks early weighing only 1 pound 5 ounces. I was so lucky to be able to take Noah home, but my mind stayed with the small babies in the nursery and what I could do to help.

I think when everybody thinks of premature babies they think of the March of Dimes, at least that is who I thought of. One day while Noah was sleeping I jumped on my computer and went to the March of Dimes website where I looked to see  how I could help. While making my donation I also noticed that besides monetary donation, there are other ways to help like buying products with the March of Dimes logo on it, donating your cell phone or you can even donate your car. March of Dimes is an amazing organization that we should all be thankful for and support.
