Prematurity Awareness

Premature birth is the #1 killer of babies.

Every baby deserves a fighting chance. You can do something today.



There’s nothing like watching a baby discover a first — first smile, first food, first step. It’s unforgettable. Post your amazing #babysfirst moments with #givethemtomorrow to celebrate each memory and help give other families tomorrow. Many families are struggling for one day with their child — and sometimes a baby’s first can also be its last.


Go purple by changing your profile picture on Facebook and Twitter.


Shout out instantly to your social community with a message on Thunderclap.


Like and follow @trisigma and share our efforts to raise awareness during the month of November. Wear purple on November 17 and share your selfie with #givethemtomorrow and #trisigma.

Choose a card, write a quick message and we’ll hand-deliver it to a family in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Your words will give strength to a family that is unable to take their baby home today.

Has a local NICU impacted your family or someone you know? Mail a card during the month of November to a NICU or nurse who made a difference in your life.
