Matthew was born on September 30, 2012 at 24 weeks and 6 days. He loves to sleep :). We are so happy to see the hats we recently made are already keeping little ones warm and cozy. He is an inspiration to all of us, so tiny and frail yet so strong and persistent. We pray Matthew will be able to go home with his family soon.
While you enjoy viewing all the cute pictures of Matthew modeling our hats below, I would like to bring your attention to World Prematurity Day on November 17. You can make a difference by signing this petition to ask President Obama to light the White House in purple to celebrate the 75th anniversary of March of Dimes and as a symbol of hope to Preemie Families. You can also raise awareness by sharing information with your friends and loved ones.
There are sad statistics about premature birth. 15 million babies are born too soon each year- that’s 1 in 10! More than 1 million babies don’t survive. For more information on how to get involved, please visit World Prematurity Day and March of Dimes
We hope that the little hats we donate provide comfort and support to the families going through this difficult time. We send prayers and positive vibes for the best outcome for their little precious one and family.
If you want to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to send more hats and need all your help!
Hoping to hear from you….
