On the first Wednesday in April each year, L’il Aussie Prems Foundation invites everyone to join us by ‘Wearing Green for Premmies’. If you have given birth prematurely, know a relative or friend that has experienced the NICU/SCN rollercoaster or lost a precious angel after being born too soon, then join us on Wednesday 3rd April 2013.
In 2011 & 2012, we saw thousands of people join us via our Facebook event by wearing something green. Literally thousands of photos were posted of families & friends wearing a sea of green including supporters wearing our green premmie wrist bands which are available via our website. With the amazing support from all of you in 2011 & 2012, up to $5,000 has been donated to ten different charities and causes. We will be supporting further causes again in 2013.
Wednesday 3rd of April 2013 is a day to celebrate all the precious children born early. You do not have to “attend” an event on the day all we ask is that you “wear” something green whether it is to work, school etc.. Examples are a green hat, scarf, pants, t-shirt, wrist band, lanyard, nail polish or even just a scrunchy.
