blue jeans

Hey there.

I have recently volunteered to be part of our local chapter of the March of Dimes. I am currently taking t.shirt orders for Blue Jeans for Babies. The t.shirts are $10 and really cute. They will feature kids from this area on the front in full color! Sweet!

Anyhow, the money will go towards the March of Dimes, which is an amazing organization by the way. They help educate women re: healthy pregnancies, and lives for them and their babies. They also have some great programs for women who have suffered the loss of a child. They spend a great deal of time working to stop premature births, etc. It's just an amazing organization!!

There are tons of ways to get involved and you should let me know if you are interested. They would love to have more volunteers!

Okay, so I am collecting donations (t.shirt orders) until October 16th. So, if you want to give you can contact me and we can make it work. Thanks for reading!

---------OFFICIAL INFO-----

The March of Dimes Mission
To improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives.

1 in 8 Babies is Born Too Soon
Premature birth can happen without warning and for no known reason. To fight this problem, the March of Dimes launched a national multiyear, multimillion-dollar Prematurity Campaign to raise awareness of the problem of prematurity and to reduce the rate of premature birth.

National Prematurity Awareness Day
March of Dimes has designated November as Prematurity Awareness Month to let us know that premature birth is a crisis in our country and to bring people together to help give all babies their 9 months. The March of Dimes is leading a national effort to save babies from premature birth by funding research to find the causes.

On November 20th - National Prematurity Awareness Day - You can send a message of hope for premature babies by wearing pink and blue, raising awareness with wristbands, car magets and ribbons, sending e-mails and letters, and supporting research. Click here to read about a way you can help!
