We Are Fundraising Again
The 4th of May sees the start of a new auction that we have put together with the support of a pile of amazing Kiwi Businesses! There are over 110 items up for grabs – most of them starting at just $1 reserve!
Why Is This So Important
When we lost Koby I searched for things to commemorate his short life – tangible ways to remember and celebrate him. KJdesigns Handstamped Jewellery was born – and my love for making handstamped jewellery and keepsakes has been a way to create tangible keepsakes for myself, and for others.
After Koby was born – it was a swirl of emotions and fog and we really had no idea what we were doing, or what to expect. The information was not there for us, we just didn’t know our options and noone was there telling us. Some of the things we’ve found out since – would have made a huge difference in our grieving process, and in our lives today.
One of these things is the service provided by Angel Casts. Having hand and foot casts would be so amazing! It is one of my great regrets – that we just didn’t know about them. We just didn’t know this was possible. So we have to live without these tangible keepsakes of our wee boy, gone too soon. But I don’t want others to have to, so this is where the fundraising comes in.
Who Are We Fundraising For
Angel Casts is a charity created by Jennifer Christiansen. Angel Casts make incredible stone replicas of babies hands and feet. The comfort and healing available from being able to touch and hold your baby/childs hands is indescribable. Having these tangible keepsakes is so very important in the healing process.
What Are The Details
The Auction starts at 7pm on 4th May 2016. It is being held on KJdesigns Facebook Page – and you can place your bids on the pictures of the items up for grabs.

How We Can All Help
Even if you don’t see something you’d like to bid on – you can still help! Sharing the Auction Album, commenting on items, tagging friends, ALL of these things will help raise awareness – even if one person see’s this – who finds themselves in a position to need Angel Casts services, then that is just one person who wont miss out and have the regrets that I do. It might be for themselves, for a friend, family member or workmate. I just don’t want anyone who might want this service to ever miss out.
