    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Hi my name is Lewis I am doing the great south run this October to raise money for Alonzo's Army a charity my wife Emily and I founded, to help our families who sadly suffer the loss of their baby prematurely due to stillbirth and Neonatal Death.

    We aim to provide little packages for these families including things like premature outfit, sock, nappies, hats etc. Along with a duplicate photo frame, these packages will come in 4 different varieties for choice.

    I know first hand what a struggle it is to even think about all the things you may want your baby to have, and even then to find clothes for under weight, premature babies is a nightmare and the last thing on a grieving parents mind.

    Me and my Wife lost our beautiful Son Alonzo Mark Tomasso last year in June born sleeping. We found out Alonzo was poorly on our 21 week scan, he was fully formed not a hair out of place or missing just small he was first estimated to weigh 3-4 weeks behind. We were utterly deverstated to say the least, myself and my wife were told to expect our son to die soon within 2 weeks max! He fought on and lasted another 6 weeks before he got to weak he passed away. In this time my wife decided to search for 1lb baby clothes at the time after looking for hours our only option was to buy from America, since then we have discovered a lovely UK based company, who have offered to team up with us.

    So if you could make a donation no matter how small we would very much appreciate it. Thank you very much for taking the time to read about our cause.

    Much love Lewis.
