Save the date! Our third annual Parents of Preemies Day will be on May 4th, 2014!
Why the change of season? Simply put, parents spoke up and we listened. Moving the event to late spring will make it possible for more moms and dads to take part, and we wanted to make sure that this is the biggest and best Parents of Preemies Day yet.
Last year, more than 400 adults and 300 children attended events in 6 cities, and many more parents and supporters were present at 10 NICU-only events – including the first ever Parents of Preemies Day event in Indonesia.
In 2014, we'd like to see triple that number of events and attendees, and with your help we can make that happen. Here's how:
- Commit to hosting a Parents of Preemies Day event or plan to volunteer at the closest local event. For more information about what it takes to make Parents of Preemies Day a success locally, fill out the form here and we'll be in touch.
- Make plans to observe the day with new preemie parents by taking a gift to your local NICU (e.g., coffee and bagels, a big basket of candy, hand-written greeting cards with messages of hope, or other treats) on May 4th.
- And of course, spread the word! Let people know that Parents of Preemies Day was created because moms and dads of preemies display amazing courage and strength every day, and their commitment to their children deserves to be celebrated.
