Standard setting baby products
Since MAM developed its first pacifier in Vienna in 1976, it has evolved to become a world leader in innovating and developing top quality baby care products for nearly 40 years. The company combines technological innovation, medical function and contemporary design to develop superior baby care products such as award-winning pacifiers, bottles, cups, teethers, oral care items and coordinating accessories that support a baby’s development from day one. Today, all MAM products are 100% baby safe: BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-compliant; and are used by families in over 60 countries and on five continents.
MAM recently joined forces with the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign, matching all gifts made to Shot@Life up to $25,000 during this year’s #GivingTuesday, which began on December 1. The Shot@Life campaign is rallying to support for polio immunizations around the globe. Polio, a disease that once crippled hundreds of thousands of children each year, is now 99% eradicated and only remains endemic in two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
“Polio anywhere is a threat everywhere so we must remain diligent in our efforts to combat this horribly disabling disease,” says Devi Thomas, Director, Shot@Life campaign. “With support from MAM we hope to raise funding and awareness for polio so we can put an end to this disease for good.”
Last year, MAM helped support Shot@Life’s efforts to provide thousands of pneumonia vaccines to children in developing countries during the #GivingTuesday campaign.
“For nearly 40 years, MAM has created products that promote the healthy development of babies,” says Isaac Cohen, Vice President of Marketing. “Our partnership with Shot@Life will enable us to further support our mission and reach more children across the globe.”
Still Time to Support Shot@Life
All gifts made to Shot@Life from December 1 through the end of 2015 will go to support ending polio globally.
In addition to its $25,000 matching contribution, MAM has created a line of Shot@Life branded pacifiers. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the limited edition pacifier sales will benefit Shot@Life.
