The March of Dimes Colorado chapter has planned a series of events and activities across the state in recognition of Prematurity Awareness Month, a national public health initiative which takes place throughout the month of November. JP Lizzy founder, Wendy Barry, has a strong connection to this cause since she began the company shortly after giving birth to her twins prematurely in 2001.

JP Lizzy is taking a stand to help raise awareness of the risks associated with premature birth. The company is donating 110 purses, in four different styles, to the Colorado chapter to use for a variety of events throughout November. The donation’s retail value is just under $5,000.

According to a study issued in October by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 34 percent of infant deaths in the U.S. in 2002 were attributed to premature births. Previously, that estimate had been 17 percent. Last year alone, premature births accounted for one in eight U.S. births, and have increased 30 percent since 1981. In more than half the cases, the causes of prematurity are not known. In an average year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born too soon. This includes more than 8,000 in Colorado. Annual national hospital charges for premature birth amount to an estimated $16 billion.

“We thank JP Lizzy for its support of our local chapter and for continuing to help us raise prematurity awareness in Colorado” said Shelly Goodchild, March of Dimes state director. “We’re thrilled to provide these fashionable purses to the families and moms that have personally been affected by this health issue. We applaud JP Lizzy’s efforts for getting involved as a corporation. The fact that Wendy can personally relate to what they are all going through, is a tremendous help to our families.”

The donated styles include Whimsy White, Spring Fling, Jackie and Caroline. Features include:

• Microfiber, wipeable seasonal fabrics;
• Wipeable interior;
• Magnetic closure;
• Metal feet.

The purses will be given to preemie moms who attend March of Dimes night at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday, November 21. The evening will include a reception for Colorado families affected by premature birth that takes place before the 7 p.m. Denver Nuggets/Chicago Bulls game. The purses will also be distributed at a healthy-baby summit the March of Dimes is hosting with local leaders of the African American community on Tuesday, November 29.

Wendy Barry, founder of JP Lizzy stated, “I’m excited to develop and nurture a long-term relationship with the March of Dimes. I firmly support their mission and look forward to working with them for years to come.”

About JP Lizzy
Recognizing a need for a practical bag that allows moms to express their sense of style, designer Wendy Barry developed the plan for JP Lizzy - a name she chose based on the inspiration of her twins, John Patrick and Emma Elizabeth. As women, we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders while still trying to look chic and feel organized. Sure our priorities shift in life, but that doesn't mean we have to give up style and color. JP Lizzy bags (jplizzy.com) are fun yet functional. Fashionable yet practical. And most importantly, they're designed with women's ever-changing needs in mind.

About the March of Dimes
A national nonprofit health organization founded in 1938, the March of Dimes (marchofdimes.com) is dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. To achieve its mission, the organization funds research, community services, education and advocacy. In Colorado, the March of Dimes currently funds $1.7 million in healthy-baby programs.
