Prematurity Awareness

November is Prematurity Awareness Month

Tri Sigma and March of Dimes lead the fight for the health of all moms and babies. Join us this November for Prematurity Awareness Month and help us bring attention to this urgent and critical cause. With 1 in 10 babies born prematurely in the U.S. each year, your actions can make a difference in the lives of women, children, and families.

During the Month of November

Light your front porch purple! Purchase a purple light bulb on AmazonSmile and light your neighborhood or community purple all month long. Let others know why you fight for the health of all moms and babies and ask others to join you in lighting their front porch purple.

Resource: Light your Porch Purple Postcard

November 17 is World Prematurity Day

Wear Purple to show support for the health of all moms and babies. Post Your Purple and share why you raise awareness for March of Dimes. Use hashtags #PrematurityAwareness and #WorldPrematurityDay and tag @sigmasigmasigmanhq and @marchofdimes.
