Time is running out to help the March of Dimes light the White House purple on January 3, 2013 as a symbol of hope for premature babies.

The White House is special to the March of Dimes because our founder was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who established our organization in 1938. To turn the White House purple, we need to secure 25,000 signatures on an online petition.

Please help us reach this goal in honor of  World Prematurity Day, Saturday, November 17. Go to sign the petition -- and encourage your family and friends to sign as well.  Thank you on behalf of families and babies! strongly encourages our visitors to post comments in response to blog postings.  We value a diverse range of opinions and perspectives.  Our goal is for this space to be educational, thought-provoking, and respectful.  To this end, we reserve the right to edit or remove comments that include personal attacks, obcenity, vulgarity, or profanity.
