Last year, more than thirty parents came together to deliver a very special message, along with survival tips, to grieving parents through the book Sunshine After the Storm: A Survival Guide for the Grieving Mother. When they talked about their goals for the book, they wanted the overarching theme to be hope and encouragement. They wanted all grieving parents to know that they’re not alone, that it’s okay to grieve.
After they published the book, it was their dream to go one step further. They had a vision of donating this book to hospitals, bereavement groups, and bereavement support groups so that parents had another source of comfort in their times of loss. The team quickly created a non-profit organization called Sunshine After the Storm, Inc. Through this organization they have already donated more than 50 books.
In order to spread the message further and continue their mission, they have kicked off a special campaign: to raise enough money to donate 100 or more books to hospitals and bereavement groups for Mother’s Day. In addition, 10 percent of all funds raised will be donated by Sunshine After the Storm, Inc. to Donna’s Good Things, the March for Babies (March of Dimes), Mommy to Mommy outreach, Fetal Hope, the TTTS Foundation, Molly Bears, Teeny Tears, and Mikayla’s Grace.
In honor of International Bereaved Mother’s Day, which is May 4th, the Sunday before Mother’s Day, they will also draw winners for some amazing prizes that have been graciously donated for this cause. Everyone is invited to participate in the giveaway. You do not have to be a grieving parent, they just ask that you make a donation ($5 minimum).
