Guam Businesses Donate Gifts Valued over $5,000 to America's First Baby

Guam is "Where America's Day Begins". It is also where America's first baby of the year is born. For the sixth consecutive year, local businesses are celebrating this event by generously donating gifts to the baby and family of the first New Year baby born on Guam.
The I Love Guam New Year Baby campaign was started and organized by Archway, Inc. in 2005 growing significantly each year with participation from the local business community and private citizens.
In addition to a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond from Archway Inc. and one from First Hawaiian Bank, other gifts include meal coupons from King's Restaurants, Seafood Grill, Proa, Meskla and Burger King; body care products from Avon; gasoline from Shell; and massage treatments from Mandara Spa. Additional sponsors include Macy's, Sand Castle, PayLess Super Markets and DFS Galleria. AK Toyota has given a new baby safety car seat, and Prime Color has given a large flower arrangement to celebrate the baby's arrival. The gift package will have a total value of over $5,000, which does not include the first year of paid premiums by Moylan's Net Care towards their "Universal Life Policy" with a value of $10,000.
"Every year the number of contributors to this event get larger and larger and they do it without any hesitation," according to Hank Rice, the Marketing Director for Archway Inc. "At the end of the day it is all about helping out and welcoming the newest American born in the USA.
This year's turnout has been amazing. With all the shortfalls in the economy, the people of Guam still find it in their hearts to come together and celebrate the newest member of our island by donating birthday gifts. 2010 looks to be a very bright start for one lucky baby!
