While parents of multiples celebrate multiple birth awareness day after day, Multiples of America dedicates the entire month of April as Multiple Birth Awareness Month.
This year, in celebration of Multiple Birth Awareness Month and in support of the Marge Ainsworth Scholarship and the Enrichment Development Growth Endowment (EDGE) Fund, Multiples of America is hosting a Virtual Run/Walk/Sleep In. This is a unique way for your friends and family to partner with you in celebrating Multiple Birth Awareness Month. For more information on this exciting event, click on the link below.
We also encourage our local clubs and members to get creative in raising awareness in your communities demonstrating the many rewards of parenting multiple birth children. Your stories and pictures are important to us and may even be published on our website or in our quarterly magazine, Multiple Connections. Submit your Multiple Birth Awareness ideas, events, and pictures to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“As a military mom when my twins were young children, my twins club membership brought me information and friends in at any base or city we were stationed at. When it came time to put them in kindergarten, the resources that enabled me to keep them together in a transition year were critical. Being a member of Multiples of America has changed my life.”
– Kelly GEMS, South Carolina
“Since becoming a member club of Multiples of America last fall, Space Coast Mothers of Multiples has seen great tangible benefits. Six local MoMs have mentioned finding our group through the MOA website, and by participating in the MOA initiative for National Multiple Birth Awareness Month in April, four more MoMs were able to learn about our local group. We have also been able to use our new 501(c)(3) designation to obtain donations from local businesses, as well as build partnerships in our area with play spaces, shops, a car wash, and more. The online resources have also been helpful – we took tips from the Fall 2018 issue of The Notebook in both the restructure of our dues as well as including the recognition of volunteers at our annual installation dinner. Attending the national convention also proved helpful in countless ways – being able to chat with others across the country about topics like how they are using social media, what types of fundraisers are working, and how to handle serving a large geographic area are invaluable. As we enter our second year as a member club of MOA, I look forward to further exploring the numerous benefits and learning how to best implement them in our local organization.”

“I attended my first Clusters meeting in April 2010; since then I have gotten more and more involved. First at the local level, then to state and now I am volunteering at the national level. Being pregnant with the triplets rocked my entire world – it also opened my eyes to wanting to share my story and experiences in hopes of helping others. I want to give back for what we received but in turn I have found some fantastic, lifelong friends. Women that I can cry and laugh (hysterically) with….as my husband would say, ‘I have found my people’.”
