Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness / Anencephaly Awareness

These awareness magnets are one of the new projects that I have been helping DD#2 with. She designed the car magnets, and I created them in Photoshop.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. And, of course, Anencephaly Awareness is a topic near and dear to our heart. The footprints are from my grandson, Amalya. He had anencephaly and on September 10, 2012 he lived for one hour and twenty minutes. Since that time, Bethany has been speaking about her experience and raising awareness for neonatal organ and tissue donation. As a bereavement doula, she has been encouraging other mothers who are going through the same situation.

Bethany is selling these to raise money so she will be able to apply for 501(c)3 status for Purposeful Gift, the organization she started. If you are interested in purchasing one of these magnets, you can find them in her Etsy shop, PurposefulGift.

Thanks! Now back to quilt-stuff 😀
