What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

In April 2016 we gave birth to our beautiful identical twin girls Callie and Skye. Shortly after birth Skye passed away due to anencephaly. Callie was cared for in neonal for 7 weeks and during that time we were surrounded by twins. And no one knew our story. No one knew about Skye. For us. It was too raw to keep bringing up.

As no one knew about Skye its not surprising we had some comments which we found difficult to deal with. One in particular. As a set of twins were crying, the mother turned to me and said "you're so lucky you dont have twins".

It was this moment we decided to create the purple butterfly stickers and posters to signify the loss of a baby, who was part of a multiple birth.

We have also created butterfly blankets for surviving twins to keep, in memory of their angel twin. We would like to donate a batch to hospitals every month. These blankets are hand made and we need to raise funds for the materials and shipping.
