"Charlotte's Purpose" was Born when Charlotte was Born Still

In 2017, my eagerly anticipated daughter, Charlotte, was stillborn just 2 weeks before her due date. I quickly realized that there were very few resources available for families facing stillbirth. Despite affecting 1 in 160 pregnancies (roughly 24,000 families in the US each year), it is a grief that is often suffered in silence. I decided that Charlotte's tiny life could still have big meaning if I poured my energy into this cause.

In the months since, I created a website to house grief resources for bereaved families and founded a not-for-profit program called The Wrapped in Love Project which repurposes donated wedding dresses and formal wear into beautiful gowns for babies who are lost too soon. Our care packages include the handmade gown, a memorial baby book, grief resources, and a Mother and Child Heart Pendant (available in our shop!). The project grew, and grew....and grew! It became larger than my modest teacher salary could stretch. I began to look into ways to make the project financially self-sustaining so that we could continue comforting families who had lost a child like we had.

While I searched for financing ideas, I also happened upon a new hobby: metal stamping! I added the Mother and Child Heart Pendant to our care packages and several loss-moms that I know asked if they could buy one. The rest is Etsy history!

Since starting the shop with the Mother and Child Heart Pendant, we have continued to add new items. As promised, every penny of proceeds goes directly into the Wrapped in Love Project. To find out more about how Charlotte's Purpose serves bereaved families, you can visit www.charlottespurpose.com, follow our kindness campaign on Twitter @charliespurpose, or reach out to us directly at charlottespurpose [!at] gmail.com.

Thanks for visiting our shop and making it possible for us to bring comfort to families as they face the most difficult day of their lives.
