Giving something back

1326120151

So, last week, I pledged to donate the proceeds of my sales from Together Apart to Sands, a charity dealing with stillbirth and neonatal deaths on the 15th October, to coincide with Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance day. I’m happy to say that the amount to be donated as a result is £86.58 – nice one! I’m well pleased with that but I do love a good, round number, so I’ll top it up to £100!

It might not be thousands, but I’m beyond chuffed and I hope it helps Sands continue to provide support to bereaved families. You can find details about Sands here: https://www.uk-sands.org/

Sales donation day – Supporting Sands Stillbirth and neonatal death charity

If you’ve read Together Apart, you’ll know that it involves the issues of miscarriage and stillbirth. It’s not something I myself have ever had to go through, but I know a number of people who have. On Facebook last week, I saw a few posts from a girl I went to school with. She was posting updates about her baby daughter who passed away last December, trying to raise awareness about pregnancy and infant death awareness.

For seven days, from last Wednesday until this Wednesday the 15th, it’s baby loss awareness week, and the 15th is a dedicated day for remembrance. I was incredibly struck by my friends very public posts and how brave she was, and since these themes run throughout Together Apart, I’ve decided that the proceeds from my sales on 15th October will be donated to Sands, a lovely charity supporting all those affected by stillbirth and neonatal death.

You can find details about Sands and make a donation here, and I’ll do an extra post with the update on how much has been raised on Thursday or Friday
