Today is November 17, 2014, World Prematurity Day. It is the day designated by the world to raise awareness about premature births by wearing purple, by lighting a candle in honor of premature births, by turning buildings purple. Today City hall will turn the tower and the fountain purple in support of prematurity. If you are in the area stop by and take pictures and post them in support of raising awareness.
Here are some people showing their support on World Prematurity day!
