Sands are a charity who are there to support the parents, and their family, of those who have lost their child through stillbirth or Neonatal death. I visited their web site daily in the early days of loosing Jacob. It helped to know we weren't alone, and to share my feelings and emotions. I also rang them a couple of times, when I felt like I was going a little mad. Sometimes your friends and family are just too close, and unless they have been through that loss, they may not 100% understand what you are going through. Sands have many people who have been through that loss, so can relate to what you are feeling.
We had Jacob for 5 days, so I decided to do an auction a day, to remember him, and raise money for this charity that's so close to my heart. The pieces I will be auctioning are just some made for the Crafty Countdown. Any bid will be truly amazing, and gratefully received - please don't feel pressured to place large bids. I'll be happy if my work sells for just a couple of quid. The winning bid will be matched by me, to up the value we donate.
The winning art work will be framed and posted out to you. Please dear with me, as work is very busy over the next couple of weeks, so I'll be sorting the winning art work out as soon as possible.
Again, thank you. Your bids are wonderful, and I've received so many lovely messages.
The bidding will close at 8pm tonight, good luck everyone
