NO EVENT REGISTRATION REQUIRED!
There will be NO event registration required. Anyone and everyone is welcome. The Butterfly Walk will begin at 10:00 a.m. EST. We will have a speaker, music, and butterfly release. We are using donated funds to give back to the community with the Butterfly Gowns, Butterfly Memorial Garden, and annual Butterfly Walk.
We will be using some of our funds to help with the costs of the Butterfly Gowns. Seamstresses donate their time to turn wedding gowns into burial gowns for those precious babies gone too soon. The Butterfly Walk Committee sends various hospitals a presentation box. Along with the gowns, the presentation box contains a blanket, poem, memory bag, cloth butterfly, and information about the annual Butterfly Walk. Some of donations will help cover the cost of sewing supplies, fabric for our bags, and yarn for our blankets. We could not keep this project going without funds from our sponsors and your help!
Another project we are working on is a cemetery project. We have teamed up with Good Samaritan Hospital to build the first ever Butterfly Memorial Garden in our community. The Butterfly Garden has a burial vault for any early miscarriage that has taken place at Good Samaritan Hospital. Good Samaritan will now offer burial services to these families affected by early miscarriage loss. Along with the burial vault, we have a memorial garden with stones for each month of the year. This is a place all families can come to mourn the loss of their baby. Some of our donations will help fund the cost of concrete, benches, stones, required maintenance, and landscaping. We could not keep this project going without funds from our sponsors and your help!
We hope you understand our reasoning for using our donation money to give back to the community. We thank you so much for being part of our events and projects!
