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.
On 11th October 2016 our son Jack Joseph Wright was born sleeping at 41 weeks and 3 days into a perfect pregnancy. Whilst you would think that none of this experience could be considered lucky, we were lucky enough to be given amazing care at Salisbury District Hospital. However when looking back and trying to think what would I improve, I always wish I could have fallen asleep looking at our Jack, holding his hand and when I woke up to see him there next to me, as I knew I would never have that opportunity at home. Unfortunately Moses baskets like most hospital's have, don't allow for this, as beds are frequently lower than a Moses basket stand and the sides of the basket get in the way of holding a babies hand whilst lying down.
It may sound like the smallest of things but after enduring what may have been days at home knowing your baby has died and waiting to be induced followed by hours of labour, you are exhausted. In our case we didn't want to go asleep, because we wanted to see and hold Jack for as long as we could. We would have loved to have been able to slip into sleep hand in hand with our boy.
Our mission is to provide every hospital in the UK with a next to you crib - this won't be any easy feat, we are at the very start and we know his won't happen quickly. We don't expect you to just part with your money for no reason and we will be doing fundraising activities to help raise more money. But literally every pound given will help us reach our aim.
If you could go without a coffee, not send Christmas or Birthday cards that will end up in the bin, save your spare change from the week, just anything. It doesn't have to be a huge sacrifice on your side, but I promise it WILL make a huge difference to so many other families and help us to keep Jack's memory alive.
We will also do what we can where we can to support other bereaved parents in this journey that none of us want to be on. For everyone who reads, shares and donates we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jack was stillborn but he is still our son, still our world and Still Jack.
