The 2nd May 2013 should have marked the first birthday of Matilda Mae, the adored daughter of Jennie at Edspire. Heartbreakingly, this was not to be as Matilda Mae was taken from her family by SIDS on 2nd February, three long months ago, and instead her family said a final goodbye.
The blogging community has done what it does best, it has listened, supported, blogged, tweeted and remembered. Matilda Mae will never be forgotten; we will celebrate her life through messy play and blowing bubbles and wearing pink and purple.
However much we might wish it, we cannot bring Matilda Mae back, but we can help Jennie to support The Lullaby Trust. Every year, over 600 babies in the UK die suddenly and unexpectedly. The Lullaby Trust’s ambition is to halve this number by 2020.
Ghostwritermummy has been very busy organising an auction to raise funds for The Lullaby Trust. These funds will go to towards research into preventing SIDs, will help support bereaved families and will help The Lullaby Trust to continue to provide safe sleeping advice.
Please support this auction in any way you can. Pop the badge on your blog (you can grab the code from Ghostwritermummy or Tots100). Make a bid in the auction. Help spread the word – blog, tweet, Facebook, tell your friends, tweet some more!
Please help support Jennie and other families who have suffered a such a cruel loss to SIDS. Together we can make a difference.
