FBLA March of Dimes and Prematurity Awareness Week
Since 2003, the March of Dimes has led Prematurity Awareness Month activities in November as part of its Prematurity Campaign. The goals of the campaign are to reduce rates of premature birth in the United States and raise awareness of this very serious and costly problem. The March of Dimes is FBLA-PBL’s national service partner. For over 40 years FBLA-PBL has consistently ranked as the top March of Dimes youth fundraising partner, raising over $15 million dollars and counting.
This week Chapel Hill FBLA will be sharing facts with you about prematurity and the impact it has on our world. You can help fight prematurity by helping us contribute to the cause.
Today your 8th period teachers will be receiving baby bottles that you can fill with donations. At the end of this week we will take them up and count the money. The eighth period class with the most money will win an ice cream party that will happen after the Thanksgiving break. Last year Mrs. Brack's class won the party. Who will it be this year?
