We did it!

Posted by Linda

We’ve done it! Thanks to all of you, we’ve reached the our goal of 25,000 signatures on our petition to light the White House purple for preemies! What’s next? All signers will receive an email response about the petition from the White House and we will post the White House response here as well. We deeply thank each and every single one of you for supporting us! By signing the petition, you are helping to support and raising awareness for preemies and their families all across the country! Thank you!

The work this team has done is absolutely incredible! I volunteered with the March of Dimes in high school and to be honest, my heart never left. I’m so proud of the March of Dimes and each person who signed the petition to light the White House purple for preemies. This is a remarkable feet in the area of raising awareness of birth defects and prematurity. I really think it’s fantastic that the White House is being supportive especially because the March of Dimes was founded by FDR while he was in office. It’s amazing how this campaign has come full circle. I can’t wait for more exciting news from the March of Dimes and I really can’t wait for January 3, 2013! So close!!

So how will we know if the petition wish is granted?
