Helping a Broken Heart
Organized by: Touch a Heart with Love
A broken heart comes in all forms but one form a lot of people don't really address is that of losing a baby. The loss can be a miscarriage at any point of time or having a still born. Often times the women, men and even children (who thought they might be having a sibling) are left shattered and feeling alone. The purpose of this fundraiser is to collect funds so that these individuals do not have to feel alone. Being a person who has gone through this, I know how lonely it can be and would have loved for someone, somewhere to show that I was not alone. The way I am reaching out to these heartbroken people is by making them care boxes. The boxes will vary but will mostly contain a teddy bear, a journal, a good writing pen, seeds to plant flowers in memory of their loss, tissues, aroma therapy candles (one for relaxation and another for sleep), a box of candies and a card. Again, this is the basic box, I would love to add more if funds allow me to. After the boxes are made, they will be donated to local on/gyn offices who have agreed to distribute to those in need. I hope to make as many boxes as possible, the amount I made is based solely on this fundraiser. Please donate and help me let women, men and children know that even though they have suffered a great loss, that there are people out there who do know what they're going through (even if you don't personally, you most likely know someone who has suffered this loss), who care, who don't want them to feel alone and would love to help them grieve and heal. Thank you for your time and support!
