Shameless Plug

Is everyone getting sick of all my posts about Faces yet?

Too bad, it's my blog :)

Over at our I AM THE FACE campaign (www.iamtheface.org) we are trying to get 2,000 faces up on the site by Oct. 15th (Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness Day) to represent the 2,000 women who lose a baby every day, in the US alone. If you haven't already, please, please upload your picture. It only takes a second (ok, maybe like 30)!

If you're reading this because you are one of my friends or family members, it would mean a LOT to me if you'd go on and make an easy $1 donation in Stevie's honor. We're getting close to our goal of raising $2,000 to support the 2,000 daily faces of baby loss. With this money, we will be able to start the process of printing and distributing full-color booklets to hospitals (to hand out to women who lose a baby), that include a listing of online resources, 'Real Advice from Real Women who have Been There,' 5-6 real stories of hope and loss, and a tear-off sheet with advice for friends and family. I think they will be really, really great!

If you don't want to or can't donate, there are 'supporter' facebook badges that you can also put up as your profile picture, either now or on October 15th.

I am pretty pumped up about this, if you can't tell:

With my sweet 'I am the Face' hoodie, Faces postcards, and 'I am the Face' keychain :)

Would you like some of these beauties to pass out too? Click here.

Look closely, and you'll see even Foxy is sporting some 'I am the Face' Merch. If you want some for yourself, click here.

Check out her 'supporter' button. What a loyal dog. Ha.

Thanks everyone for all your incredible support!

I have already given the shout out to several midwives and birth centers...who are always looking for good and REAL resources for clients who experience loss. Next, I need to get a hoodie...do they come in ridiculously large?

Maggie said...

You are such an inspiration and I really love seeing this all take shape! :) I have to order some of those cards. I think I might pass some out on Alexandra's anniversary at the hospital she was born in. I will order soon! XO

My name is Janel and I came across your blog along with the faces blog (which I will be joining by the way). I just wanted to give you a link to another blog that might help you on your journey, it is patrickandashley.blogspot.com

Also, an amazing website to look at is lds.org, the beliefs there got me through my 3 miscarriages. Good luck and God Bless!!

You're awesome, and no I'm not tired of hearing about Faces. I'm pretty pumped about it too!!! :)

Hoping Faces reaches your goal of 2000! I know it can happen! So much has evolved in such a short time!

ps- Foxy is pretty awesome too, so loyal ;)

Andrea said...

Love it! Think I need to do this tomorrow. :) Love the new sweatshirt. Looks awesome!

I'm going to be walking in a "Walk To Remember" Share walk (for early loss, still birth & infant loss) on October 23rd, I'll be ordering some of those cards!!

Definitely not tired of hearing about it! When I miscarried, I received NO information from the doctor whatsoever. Just an "I'm sorry, this isn't your fault." from the doctor, after they made me wait in a room surrounded by pictures of happy babies for 45 minutes. I'm so glad that you are getting the word out.

Have you thought about directing this money to medical research that could end the suffering of babyloss moms for good?

Kristin said...

Anonymous-no, the purpose of Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is to help those who are suffering from pregnancy/infant loss. I don't see research and finding a medical 'answer' as my calling.

I'm so thrilled that you are doing this....go ahead and plug away! :)

Lori said...

I'm not tired of your plugging at all and will do so on my blog too...just have to catch up with so much!

Ordering postcards for Matthew's birthday (November) and will be taking them to our hospital (which honestly, WAS WONDERFUL!) and local DC/MD/VA hospitals, including Georgetown's NICU (where he died)...

It's hard to be so glad and yet so sad to recommend FOLFOH, but know what amazing support it is and am grateful...
