Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On 22/1/2016 my amazing cousin Simon, and his lovely wife, Laura were devastated when their beautiful baby boy, Jarvis, was born sleeping. As a family we all rallied round and supported Simon and Laura through this tough time, as much as we could. This is how I have come to find out about 4Louis and the amazing/wonderful work they do, to help out family's who find themselves in this awful position. The day we said our goodbyes to Jarvis, Simon told me he was fundraising for this great organisation, by competing in the Great North Run, which he duly completed, and I made a promise that day, that I would one day too raise funds to support the great thing 4Louis does. This week was Jarvis' 2nd birthday, and I am now ready (mentally if not yet physically!) to compete in a sprint distance triathlon, in September. I have never done a triathlon of any sort before so really don't know what to expect, but I will be giving my all to complete it, in memory of Jarvis. Anything you can donate would be fantastic, and even if you are unable to donate, please take a look below and see for yourself the wonderful things 4Louis do...£30 will provide one family with a memory box.
As grieving Angel mum's we decided we wanted to do something to help make a devastating experience a little more bearable by letting families know they are not alone. We do this by providing hospitals across the U.K with memory boxes, so angels parents can capture as many memories as they can.
We provide memory boxes for stillbirth, neo-natal, infant and child loss. Each memory box contains;
- A clay impression kit, to capture an impression of babies hands and feet.
- Two teddies, one for baby and one for the family.
- A glass angel in a presentation box
- A candle, for a special occasion where the family may want to light it.
- A card, so the family can write a poem or letter to baby.
- A curl box, for a lock of babies hair,
- An inkless wipe kit, to capture imprints of babies hands and feet.
- A CD to keep babies photographs safe
- A copy of 'Guess How Much I Love You book
