To commemorate our 10th anniversary as a registered charity we invited our wonderful supporters to Donate a Bear for BLAW. We are humbled that between 8th August and 8th October, more than 500 bears were donated in memory of babies special to you. The bears will be gifted with love and understanding and reach the arms of families when they need it most. Together, we will ensure that no family faces their journey alone.
To thank our donors, we included the option for their baby’s name to said aloud in our Say Their Name remembrance tribute - a series of short videos made by members of the Aching Arms community being shared throughout Baby Loss Awareness Week 2023, 9th to 15th October.
It’s a privilege to bring Aching Arms families together to collectively remember our much-loved and missed babies whilst raising awareness of pregnancy and baby loss.
