Weʼve raised £285 to fundraise alongside From Liam with love to purchase Specialist cuddle blankets to allow families to hold their babies after they have passed
- Sutton-in-Ashfield, UK
- Funded on Wednesday, 27th February 2019
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.
Liam was born by emergency C-secton on May 31st 1998, sadly a placental abruption caused Liam severe brain damage and his organs failed.
Liam died in my arms at 11.30am on June 2nd aged 37 hours 37 minutes old.
I will be forever thankful for the time I had with my baby boy and the lifetime of memories we had time to create together.
On May 31st 2019 Liam should have been celebrating his 21st Birthday.
To honour his memory and celebrate the time we shared I'm organising a charity event to raise money to give other parents the gift of time with their baby after their passing. I'm hoping others will join me as I aim to raise around £5000.
The money raised will go towards purchasing specialist cuddle blankets to allow families to hold their babies after they have passed away.
This allows families to bond and create memories before they say goodbye to their baby. This time is very difficult and precious to them and allows them to start to grieve the loss of their child.
From Liam with love will also be hosting a Masquerade Ball on June 1st 2019 with all entertainers donating their time.
Please help us to help other families in their time of need.

About the fundraiser
My name is Claire, when I was 19 I gave birth to my firstborn son, sadly 2 days later I held him in my arms as he took his last breath. Liam would have turned 21 in May 2019 and in his memory I want to help other families through the grief of baby loss
