Pampers are celebrating their 10th anniversary in partnership with UNICEF and with it making one wonderful wish to eliminate maternal and newborn
tetanus everywhere. Whilst they work so incredibly hard trying to
achieve that wish by continuing to offer free vaccines with their packs of
Pampers they want everyone else to think about what they would wish for their
My boys are my world, they might well drive me a little
crackers at times but they also fill me with an overwhelming happiness.
For them I wish a contented life, not fame or fortune although they might

to each other and have people be kind to them.

make a difference. Please spread the word and help Pampers achieve their
wish. It really is very simple to get
involved, after watching the video share it on your social media and keep the
free vaccines going to the remaining 21 countries where tetanus is still a
