October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. During this month many organizations throughout the world organize events for families to memorialize their baby lost to stillbirth, miscarriage, neonatal death and SIDS.
Please join us, together with bereaved families, their living children, friends and loved ones, and all who support our cause, for our second annual fundraiser and to participate in Light and Unite, celebrating the Wave of Light, a progressive candle lighting all around the world, in memory of our sweet babies. If every participant in different countries lights a candle (or many candles...) at 7pm local time, keeping the candles lit for at least an hour, a "wave of light" will rise and propagate around the world for the whole day!
The Covid-19 pandemic has made this event challenging, but we are working on a virtual candle-lighting event. More details to come. Please join our Facebook page for the most recent updates.
You can still support our efforts with a donation.
Our fundraiser this year will be the candle sale for Light and Unite 2020. The 5" candle can be personalized with a photo and name(s). If we took the photo, then we have it saved. Just let us know what photo you would like.
Candles must be ordered by October 5, 2020. If you are local to the Pittsburgh area, you can either pick it up or we can deliver it. If you are not local, the candle can be shipped to you for $5.50
We will create a virtual event and light them together for a time of peaceful reflection.
