12 Days of Christmas with You in Heaven Guest Poster

so today is my turn to be a guest poster over at Small Bird Studios. fran created the "12 days of christmas with you in heaven" as a way to help grieving families honor their loved ones and cope with this difficult holiday season. i posted my tutorial on how to make the personalized memorial candle that i made for Julius. so go check it out! i hope that it was relatively easy to follow, but if not, just send me an email and i'll try to clarify.

i also revealed my last monthly Juju giveaway...

this month is all about giving, so in honor of that, i have chosen this month's giveaway to be a $25 donation to the charity of the winner's choice {but a real charity please, no one put in for the george costanza human fund ;) }. i have a few organizations that are very meaningful to us {CJ Foundation for SIDS, and First Candle just to name a few}, and i give to them every chance i get hoping that one day no one will have to lose a child this tragic way. but i know that there are other wonderful organizations out there that do so much for others, so i'd like to do a small part to help in honor of my son and the winner's loved one.

all you have to do is leave a comment with the name of the charity you would like me to donate to if you won. i will leave the giveaway open until the 17th and then announce the winner on the 18th {the week before christmas}. good luck!

I am SO glad that you did this tutorial because I REALLY wanted to make one!! They are so perfect for Beck's Christmas table!

Like you, I would donate to the First Candle foundations, wonderful idea for the last giveaway!

I would love to nominate our own Charity Mikayla's Grace (www.mikaylasgrace.com), we donate angel memory boxes and NICU care packages to hospitals in Madison, Wisconsin. Thanks for giving back! I loved your candle tutorial, I'll definitely have to try that!

You are so generous, sweet friend. I would choose River's Rally (www.riversrally.org) so it can go to families dealing with loss of a child. You are sooo amazing, and I love the candle. I have been admiring it since you posted a picture before <3

There are a million, but NILMDTS would be my choice as they gave me the most precious gift of photos of my son that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

Great idea Tiffany. This is a local group but HAND of the peninsula in the Bay Area has been a godsend to me and my husband, and they are totally volunteer-run. There aren't any other support groups in our area that do what they do. Look forward to reading your guest blogpost on the other blog.

Ronan Thompson Foundation

Is there a link to your guest post? It could totally be reader error but I can't find it. Sending you hugs. Take care.

I would pick, "the tears foundation". Its a foundation that helps people who lose their children to pay for funerals and headstones.
