Can you believe it's already October 15th tomorrow!? One more day until National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. We are so, so thankful for everyone's amazing support of our first annual I AM THE FACE campaign so far.
Thank you for all the work you've done promoting this cause on your blogs, facebook, twitter, support forums, etc, over the last few weeks. The internet is definitely buzzing with our message!
Through this campaign, we are showing the world that pregnancy/infant loss is very common. And that while it's incredibly sad, it's not something anyone needs to be ashamed of. Just like breast cancer survivors, we are all survivors too. It wasn't long ago that breast cancer was a taboo subject, and look at it today! You can't escape the pink if you tried! :) We're confident that if we all continue to unite as one collective voice, baby loss will one day too be a perfectly acceptable thing to talk about in our society. That soon, no one will feel like they are alone in their grief.
So please, we ask that tonight, on the eve of October 15th, you make one of the following badges your profile picture on facebook (and wherever else you go online!), and keep it up all day tomorrow, National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
www.iamtheface.org and upload your face to our site. We are getting so close to our goal of 2,000 faces--the number who lose a baby every single day.
Thanks again everyone!
Kristin and Andrea
