These days when you ask your friends how they met their spouse, it’s common for a lot of them to say it was online… and even more common to hear that it was on has played a very big role in the forming of my immediate extended family, so it’s even more special to me. Two of my close family members met their “match” on and both are either parents to a “Matchmade” baby or expecting one. Pretty cool right? is celebrating their 20th year anniversary and  {GET THIS —>) over 1 million match made babies with a scholarship contest where one Matchmade baby will win a $50,000 scholarship!

  • What a fantastic program! I had never heard of this before, so I loved hearing about it.

  • Wow! I had no idea that was celebrating 20 years! I have 2 good friends who just met their special someone their. One just got married last year and the other is talking about marriage. 🙂

  • That is so neat that they are doing this for the kids. I know some parents that will be thrilled to have this for their kiddos.

  • I know a few match made babies, it is so common these days between my group of friends. This is such a great program!

  • Some people are so opposed to online dating and I just don’t understand why! Yes, it’s technically not the ‘traditional way’ but honestly what is now and days? As long as you meet someone that you can truly feel comfortable around, trust, and that loves and respects you unconditionally I say go for it 🙂

    I LOVE the concept of this scholarship! What a great way to give back!

  • I met my husband though online date site. We have been married for 12 years now and blessed with two kids. This is an amazing event and good luck to all participant who joins.
