The March of Dimes

If you have a little time, or a few spare buckaroos, you might think about helping out the March of Dimes. It's a not-for-profit organization that is widely known for its efforts to prevent premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.

One of my sweet little baby portrait subjects, Sarah, was born very early (at 33 weeks!), and her mom's hoping to reach a $500 goal. We have a neighbor down the street whose son was born very early this past year (at 32 weeks), and an acquaintance who recently lost her son well into her second trimester.

I have worked and volunteered in Neonatal Infant Care Units and seen the preemies, the babies born with birth defects, and the families affected by the circumstances. Please give, if you can. By clicking below, you can give directly on Sarah's behalf!
