World Prematurity Day


Raising Awareness — World Prematurity Day 2014

Hats 4 Hope is more than just hats. The care and lives of premature babies are continuing to improve – and awareness, education, intervention, and nutrition are a large part of this. Hats 4 Hope represents a promise for support and opportunity.

Other organizations are making this promise with us. Hats 4 Hope has inspired Abbott—a global leader in the science of infant nutrition—to lead a worldwide initiative to knit and donate hats in honor of World Prematurity Day. The effort launched on World Prematurity Day 17 November 2014 and goes until World Prematurity Day in 2015!

World Prematurity Day is designated by the U.S. March of Dimes and the European Foundation for the care of premature infants. It takes place on November 17th each year.

Show your support by knitting and donating a hat to Hats 4 Hope!
