Rachel Stevens is calling out to mums, dads and parents to donate a blanket to the Dettol Baby Blanket Donation charity campaign to help babies in need.
Now I remember Rachel, as my favourite S Club 7 member. Now she is the face of the Dettol campaign to help babies and families in they’re hour of need.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of bacteria on baby blankets whilst highlighting the shortage of baby blankets available to infants born to families in need. Once collected the baby blankets will be hygienically washed with Dettol Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser, an additive that kills 99.9% of bacteria even in temperatures as low as 15°C, before being re-distributed to families. Dettol has also pledged to donate £1 for every blanket donated to Sparks – a children’s medical research charity.
Rachel said “I’ve got all my mummy friends donating their blankets and I’m trying to get as many people involved as possible. It’s a brilliant campaign in itself but now I’m a mum I am even more aware of how much washing there is to do. With Dettol Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser I get to do loads of quick washes at low temperatures and I know that things will be hygienically clean and germ free.”
Parents are encouraged to engage with @DettolBlanket on Twitter with the #sharethememories hash tag.
So I know what I’ll be doing this week! Hitting the sales getting some reduced blankets and donating them to this fab cause! Please let me know if you plan to get involved share your pictures here, on my Facebook page or my Twitter. Together I’m sure we can make a difference to all the families in need.x
