Please Wear Purple Today
So, what is world prematurity day?
This year 15 million babies will be born prematurely around the world, 60,000 right here in the UK. More newborns die from premature birth than from any other cause. Yet, 75 percent of these deaths can be prevented, even without intensive care.
On 17 November, World Prematurity Day, Bliss will join with other organisations around the globe to raise awareness.
We know that having a premature baby can turn your world upside down. Join us on World Prematurity Day and help us turn the world the right way up for the thousands of families all around around the UK who are facing an extremely traumatic time when their baby comes early.
  • You can show your support by sending Bliss a picture of your little one. They’ll be combining all of the images to make a photo collage which they’ll send back to you on 17th November for you to share with friends and family and over social media. Just email your images to
  • The international colour for WPD is purple, as always, you could light a purple candle or wear purple on the day and share a photo across social media.
  • Hold a little lights walk in your area to raise awareness and vital funds for Bliss.
