Charity Candy

Good Morning

Victoria at Blue Jelly Too has some fabulous blog candy on offer until 9th Dec. But this is no ordinary candy because Victoria is giving away this candy to raise funds for charity ~ SANDs Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity.

This charity is very special to Victoria because 3 years ago her first baby, Flynn, tragically died when he was just two days old following birth complications at 42 weeks.

When I saw Victoria's candy post I really wanted to help her raise money for this charity because 6 years ago I lost our baby boy, Ben, when I was 22 weeks pregnant because of a congenital birth defect. We were absolutely devastated by the loss of our baby son and even now I can clearly remember how grief stricken we felt.

So if you would like to help Victoria raise funds for this fantastic charity here's what you have to do. Victoria would like you to send her your handmade cards and/or gifts wrapped with envelopes in a saleable state. She will then pass these on to SANDs who will sell and keep 100% of the proceeds to help set up new SANDs groups across the UK. For every card you send you get 1 blog candy entry. So 1 card = 1 entry, 10 cards = 10 entries etc.

Thank you for this information Lisa.

I too would like to help as I can identify with all your write having lost our first child, a little girl at birth. It may be many years ago, but as you rightly say, you never forget.
