Carly Marie at Project Heal started the August 19th Day of Hope to honour her son Christian’s legacy.
I’ve taken the following blurb straight from the facebook event page:
“August 19th is about honouring and remembering the lives of babies and children that could not stay with us. By doing this we are speaking out about the death of babies and children.
August 19th is a day to break down the walls of society that keep pregnancy, infant and child loss a hush hush subject. People view the death of a baby as just a sad thing that happened. These babies that die are not sad things that happen. They are people, much loved and wanted children. They are brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, grandsons and granddaughters.
August 19th is about openly speaking about these children and celebrating their short lives.
By having this special day once a year we get people speaking about pregnancy, infant and child loss. And by doing this we break those walls down so that people are not afraid to speak about these children anymore.”
So please take a moment to show your support. If you have experienced any type of loss, the event is for you.
Thanks so much for arranging this Carly Marie xxxx
