sharing your stories and remembering your children
By: The Editors
Sometimes in the nonprofit world, it is easy to think of fundraising as the necessary thing you do so you can do your actual work.
But then, sometimes, everything comes together and something really special happens.
On Oct. 23, the Early Pregnancy Loss Association hosted its first Fall Charity Gala. It not only helped us raise money so we can provide resources to families, but at the event, we encouraged community AND raised awareness about pregnancy loss. (All three areas of our mission!)
The gala itself was such a testament to the changing culture around early pregnancy loss. More than 50 people in our local community came together, recognizing that caring for women and families experiencing early pregnancy loss is a cause worth supporting. Awareness is rising. Good things are happening.
We could not have done it without our amazing board of directors:
Emily Carrington, Steph Gordon, Katie Stockdale, Maria Servold, Amanda Allen, Linda Tibbitts, & Sarah Gregory.
We are so thankful for our gracious hosts, Bob and Kathy Norton and for our amazing sponsors:
We will continue to work towards our goal: a world where all families suffering early pregnancy loss receive physical, emotional, educational, and financial support.
