Hi Friends and Family
The Tear’s Foundation’s annual Walk & Rock is coming up at Safeco on June 26th. Last year we were one of the top fundraising teams with $2155 raised in Isaiah’s name. For those of you who partnered with us last June, thank you once again! For those of you who are hearing about this for the first time, The Tears Foundation is an amazing non-profit group that helps families with funeral expenses when they have been devastated by the death of their baby.
We know firsthand that life is unbelievably hard when your baby dies. Parents one day planning a nursery for their child are suddenly expected to plan a funeral. Yet deciding where and how to put the baby to rest is the last way they can care for their child as parents. It’s so important that parents have the opportunity to do this in a loving way for their baby and yet many parents don’t even have the money for a headstone.
Isaiah’s life has changed our life forever and we miss him very much. So we choose to use our love for him to help others. If we don’t use our experience to show more compassion to others then where is the value in his death? By raising funds for the Tears Foundation we hope to see others experience compassion during their tragedy.
Although our team raised over $2000 last year we know that may or may not meet the needs of only one family. So this year we are looking to raise at least $3000. If you feel it is right for you to give there are families that we would appreciate any amount you can offer. Otherwise, let us know if you are interested in walking with our team!
