October 15, is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Everyone is invited to light a candle at 7pm in memory of all babies lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss. Take a picture of your candle and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post the pictures soon after.
There are many organizations and support groups that hold ceremonies on or around October 15. You can find a list of activities across the U.S. here, http://www.october15th.com/activities-walks/, or by doing a quick internet search on your own. I apologize if the event you find has already happened; I was hoping to get this information posted sooner.
My hope is that this time next year, we will be holding an event through Kyleigh’s Gift to honor and remember all babies who have left us too soon. Stay tuned for more details after the first of the year!
Throughout the month of October, I have been posting information regarding pregnancy loss on the Kyleigh’s Gift Facebook page. The first few weeks have focused on miscarriage and I plan to conclude the month with facts about stillbirth. If you are on Facebook, hop on over and ‘Like’ Kyleigh’s Gift.
In honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, we will be holding a raffle fundraiser for Kyleigh’s Gift! Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
Last, Kyleigh’s Gift has email! You can contact us at: email@example.com. Feel free to contact us with questions, your own story of loss or just to say hi!
