Last Chance To Turn The White House Purple For Preemie Families

Nov 15, 2012, 12:47 ET from March of Dimes

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 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 and sign the petition -- and encourage your family and friends to sign as well.  Thank you on behalf of families and babies!
