Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Tatyana Ali and her youngest son, Alejandro Rasberry, want you to support the March of Dimes from home. The veteran actress and mom of two, recently took to Instagram to give a public service announcement (PSA) about the upcoming ‘March For Babies’ event, which will take place virtually this year.
“Hi everyone,” Tatyana began her announcement. “I have a very important message for you,” she said. “As you may know, I work with the March of Dimes. I support them and their fight for the health of moms, babies, and families.
“Our medical system is being tested like never before, and March of Dimes has been right there to provide support and guidance to families so that they can protect themselves.”
Ali went on to petition her subscribers to support the March For Babies event, which is scheduled to begin on April 2, 2020, and end on May 15, 2020.
“The March of Dimes annual ‘March For Babies’ is going virtual,” Tatyana told her fans. “That’s right,” the celebrity mom exclaimed. “You can start a team, join a team, and count your steps safely from home or wherever you are.”
Ali, who had her son with her during the announcement, ended her PSA by telling her supporters, “Moms can’t wait. Babies can’t wait. You can’t put pregnancy on pause.”
