This is THE DAY! The start of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month and the beginning of the UV Skinz “Save A Baby’s Skin” campaign!

With the statistics rising to 2 million cases of melanoma being diagnosed annually the need to raise awareness about early intervention is important. Just one childhood sunburn can more than double your chances of developing skin cancer in adulthood. That is why UV Skinz is giving away uv-protective baby swim shirts to thousands of newborns all over the country this May. Visit the UV Skinz website to learn more!

Our “Save A Baby’s Skin” campaign has  blossomed from the passion that Rhonda Sparks originally began UV Skinz with. When Rhonda lost her husband to melanoma in 2001, leaving her with three small boys, it was their future health and happiness that led Rhonda to found UV Skinz. Ever since, UV Skinz has never lost sight of the goal to get kids covered. Teaching our children good sun-safety habits is important so that they continue these practices into adulthood. UV Skinz makes it easy with comfortable, high-quality, and stylish swim shirts.

Our newest addition is our Special Edition Baby Skinz that will be distributed with every order placed in May!


Here’s the scoop! Place an order during the month of May and you will receive a FREE baby skinz with the cute saying, “What’s a Sunburn,” to pass a long to a baby in need. There will be a flyer within each order asking for you to pass along the baby skinz to a needy organization; your local women’s shelter, red cross, maternity ward, mommies group, a friend or family member. The possibilities are endless! Once you’ve passed it on come back to the UV Skinz blog and share how you gifted your “What’s A Sunburn” swim shirt.

If you would like to know more about the campaign feel free to email, call 1-877-887-5468 or read the official press release here.
