March of Dimes' fight for preemies

While at BlogWorld, I had the pleasure of meeting Beverly Robertson from the March of Dimes. She mentioned the event she is coordinating: Fight for Preemies. Because a special preemie is in my heart, I was instantly committed to helping promote the event.

Beverly explained that “Every year, 20 million babies are born too soon, too small and very sick. November 17 is when we fight – that day is dedicated to raising awareness of the crisis of premature birth.”

When we first met, Beverly said she her goal was to have 200 bloggers join the event. At last check, 330 bloggers had united for preemies. Let’s blow the roof off of Beverly’s goal and see 500 (or more!) bloggers unite to raise awareness about our most fragile babies. If a preemie has touched your life, please join the Fight for Preemies event.

And check back next Tuesday when I interview the preemie who has captured my heart…

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.
