Every donor who generously donated. Everyone who sent me encouraging texts and Facebook messages. Everyone who sent me an e-mail to introduce yourself and your children. Every company and business who selflessly donated product to be raffled off during the Blogathon.
Thank you to The Compassionate Friends for doing what you do to comfort so many, to end the isolation, to provide support. Thank you for including parents of stillbirth, infant loss and miscarriage when society is so quick to turn us away. Thank you for caring. Thank you for making a difference.
I wish everyone could have won something. With 60 donors this year, it was easily my biggest Blogathon yet. The support completely blew my mind. I wish every single person who donated could have walked away with a raffle prize. I am so appreciative for every single donor, for every dollar donated, for everyone who so generously made a donation to The Compassionate Friends through the Blogathon. You all have my sincere thanks and my gratitude. When I set my fundraising goal of $500, I never imagined I would wrap up the Blogathon at nearly $2,000 raised. I am grateful for all of you and want you to know how very appreciative that I am.
Thank you to all of the sponsors who donated raffle prizes: Hello Apparel, Core Bamboo, Hydro Flask, The Printed Palette, Designs by Jessika, Stephanie Pederson's Origami Owl, Yogi Teas, Sweaty Bands, Planet Box, Sweet Bliss Sugar Scrubs Co., Ben and Jerry's, Bolder Band, The Leakey Collection, Ashley Seiden's 31, Arvo, Sarah's Scents and Songs and Keurig.
--- One more post to go and that's a wrap for this year. Thank you for your support and for allowing me to break the silence over something that needs to be talked about. Thank you for letting me remember my daughter and all of your children, too. Thank you for listening. Thank you for your support.
Just one more post to go.
