UV Skinz 10th Annual Save A Baby's Skin Campaign

No child should ever know what a sunburn feels like.

UV Skinz, a leading provider in sun-protective clothing will partake in their 10th Annual Save a Baby's Skin Campaign for the entire month of May. For every order placed, UV Skinz will include a UPF 50+ baby sun shirt to raise awareness about the seriousness of skin cancer and the actionable steps that can be taken to prevent as many babies as possible from ever experiencing the feeling of a sunburn.

“A single severe sunburn during the first 15 years of life doubles that child’s risk for developing melanoma later on so it is critical children are adequately protected from the sun at all times,” says UV Skinz Founder and CEO, Rhonda Sparks. UV Skinz was founded after the devastating loss of Rhonda's then husband, and has since fueled her passion to prevent other families from experiencing the same fate her family has. “After losing my 32-year-old husband, Darren, to skin cancer, and being left to raise our three little boys on my own, I was determined to bring products to the market that could help families live sun-safe,” she adds.

In addition to promoting the importance of sun protection for young children each May, UV Skinz participates year-round in cultivating personal relationships and dialogue with true Warriors, Angels and Survivors of Melanoma and other skin conditions. Featured here in the 'My Story' series on the company's blog, these personal accounts represent the core of UV Skinz' dedication to their mission of education and awareness. This honest exchange of information told by survivors and their loved ones focuses on fostering awareness through personal stories of hope, loss, triumph and healing. UV Skinz is honored to celebrate these heroes by sharing their heartfelt experiences in order to highlight the need to instill sun-safe habits at a young age that will last a lifetime.

To receive a certified UPF 50+ Baby Shirt (size 12-24m), simply place an order on the company’s website during the month of May and a 'My First Skinz' sun shirt will be automatically included with your order, no coupon code necessary!
