DARIEN, CT — Two popular Fairfield businesses will join nearly 20 outlets in the Tiny Miracles Foundation’s first-ever “Prematurity Awareness Campaign” this month. Turnpike Spirit Shop and Little Pub will be two locations in town that will participate in the community campaign created to generate visibility for the widespread incidence of premature births, while raising funds for Tiny Miracles programs for families of premature babies.
Businesses in Fairfield County and beyond have pledged to support Tiny Miracles by offering promotions and special events in the days surrounding November 17 – recognized as Prematurity Awareness Day.
“Prematurity has a significant impact on our community; One in 10 babies is born prematurely,” said Tina Tison, executive director of Tiny Miracles. “We are very grateful for the generous support of Turnpike Spirit Shop and Little Pub to help us spread the message of our mission and raise important funds to help us provide compassionate care to families facing the trauma of premature birth. “
Turnpike Sprit Shop (1838 Black Rock Turnpike; turnpikespiritshop.com) has committed to providing two weeks of support starting Friday November 4th. The store will contribute 10% of sales of select products, including Cylinder ultra premium vodka, Moonlight Barista, Pasha’s Persian Lemonade and The Cocktail Chemist Beverage Co items. The store will also offer customers the opportunity to round up their purchase for donations to Tiny Miracles.
Little Pub (2133 Black Rock Turnpike; littlepub.com) is committed to supporting Tiny Miracles throughout Prematurity Awareness Day – Thursday, November 17.
