The International Wave of Light
October 15th International Day of Remembrance
Today we remember all babies born too soon. Today we tell the world that it’s okay to break the silence and comfort mothers who have lost. Today we provide love, light, and encouragement to mamas who are in horrible pain.
Today we also ask for your help in accomplishing this mission.
I established Sunshine After the Storm (a 501(c)3 nonprofit) after the loss of my infant daughter Kathryn. We provide encouragement, hope, and light to grieving mothers through the delivery of care packages to grieving mothers. We fill these packages with items to bring the mothers comfort and love.
We are remembering all of our children today that are not with us. In this month of awareness, I have made it my goal to clear the queue of package requests. We have over 40 at this point.
I have to be honest, I made a booboo. As the package requests came in and we did not have the funding to send them, rather than asking for help, I got overwhelmed and shut down. And now we’re in a position that I need a tremendous amount of help in order to send these mamas the love and light and encouragement we promised them.
If you are able to share even a small donation, every little bit helps. We spend between $25-$35 per package, including shipping.
If you’d rather send items for the packages in lieu of a cash donation, we have a wish list on Amazon.
Can you make a donation to support Sunshine After the Storm for the October 15th International day of Remembrance?
The demand is high and we are always in need of donations.
Or perhaps you’d like to participate in a shopping event and start getting your Christmas gifts?
We are selling these awareness wraps AND have an active fundraiser. 40% of all sales are being donated to Sunshine After the Storm.
You may also order your wraps to support Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month through this form:
