Every single day in the US, 2,000 women lose a baby to pregnancy/infant loss. That’s 700,000 a year, a third of every female in this country. So why does no one talk about it?
In honor of October 15th, National Pregnancy/Infant Loss Remembrance Day, we are opening up the conversation. We are “putting a face” on miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. We are sharing our faces, and declaring to the world, “I am not ashamed to talk about my baby.”
The goal of the I AM THE FACE campaign is simple: to spread awareness of pregnancy/infant loss, and raise support for those who are affected by it. With your help, we will raise $2,000 for the 2,000 women who experience the loss of a child every day. $2,000 for 2,000 faces.
Donations will go to Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope, a nonprofit organization with a mission of providing support and resources for parents who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss and to spread awareness of pregnancy and infant loss throughout the greater community.
I AM THE FACE campaign is brought to you by Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope was founded in July of 2010, as a place for survivors of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss to come together, share their stories and their faces, connect with others who have been through similar experiences, feel “normal,” and know they are not alone.
At faces you’ll find hundreds of real stories of pregnancy/infant loss, categorized and searchable by subject and keyword, a blog directory, helpful resources, including an area specifically for friends and family, ways to get involved in making a difference, and much more.
