Next week the John Long FBLA Chapter will be completing a project to support a National organization all FBLA Chapters support across the United States – March of Dimes.  Every year there are millions of premature births which result in either extensive health care or death for babies.  Many of those premature births could be prevented.  The national March of Dimes distributes and helps moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies.  They complete their work locally, nationally, and even globally.

The Chapter will be hosting a “Miracle Minute” on Friday, November 15 during Advisory.  All John Long students are asked to donate any amount of change they can – pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters – and even dollar bills - are welcome.  We will be passing a bucket in each Advisory for only one minute and see how much John Long students can help the cause for healthier babies.

Please send any change you many have with your son/daughter next Friday, November 15.  If you have any questions on this project, please contact Mrs. Mathias.
