Mother’s Day is hard if you have lost a child. Tracey’s son was killed, so she knows how tough it is. To help other bereaved mothers, she raised money to give them flowers on Mother’s Day. Because the loss of a child makes you no less of a mum.
Hi Tracey, what inspired you to start raising money?
I crowdfunded to raise money to remember bereaved mothers on Mother's Day. I crowdfunded for this particular cause because it's a day where most people will not remember that there are bereaved mother's who have lost what could have been their only child.
Is this something you've always felt strongly about?
I really wanted to do it as a way of remembering mums, particularly forgotten mums.
Were you surprised by the reaction you got?
Yes, it was very positive. It's really nice to know that people actually remember other mothers. A lot of people who donated actually donated on behalf of mothers who have actually passed away.
How did that make you feel?
It was incredibly enlightening and humbling. Just because someone has lost their child it doesn't make them any less of a mother.
