Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I started Theresa's Tiny Treasures in October 2015, the aim of this registered charity is provide baby bereavement photography and keepsakes to families of babies miscarried or 'born sleeping'.
Registered charity number 1169080
The charity provides hand and footprints onto ceramic which will be fired in a kiln that Jacob's parents raised money for (these have previously been glazed by Stanhoe Pottery until I had raised funds for my own kiln). Money needs to be raised for ceramic blanks, underglaze, glazing supplies and a dipping glaze.
Also provided are plaster castings of babies hand and feet, hand made clothing, blankets, quilts, baby bereavement charms, baby bracelets and many other things. I also provide burial gowns for tiny babies to term babies made from wedding dresses these are made by Jane and Hayley.
The charity provides footprints in sand which are made into 3d glass made by pouring in molten glass. The charity has many knitters who are committed to providing beautiful clothes, I am grateful for each and every kindness.
Many other keepsakes are being added and will be provided if funding allows. These items all cost money and will always be offered for free to any families needing the services. I would hate to ever put a price on providing memories and have had some wonderful donations that have all been put to good use setting up and running a new charity. The set up costs have been more than anticipated and I find myself again funding keepsakes.

About the fundraiser
King's Lynn and West Norfolk District, United Kingdom
After many years working for the NHS I have decided to provide what I consider is a much needed service to families who lose a longed for baby at any stage of pregnancy. This will compliment the service the NHS already provides to families.
