“We are hoping to raise funds to support local charities that we hold close to our hearts, in honour of our baby Louis. Having this fund will give us the opportunity to help our community and other parents who have been forced to learn to live with pregnancy and infant loss. If you can, please consider giving any amount to help us reach our goal of making an impact in the level of care for perinatal bereavement.
No parent should feel as though they are alone after the loss of their child, and our goal is to find ways to give support and guidance to families facing this traumatic and frightening world. Every little bit helps. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts in helping us honour the life of our baby boy.”
- Leah and Jesse
Gifts to the fund will be held until Louis' family determines whether the fund will be endowed at The Winnipeg Foundation to offer permanent community support for local perinatal bereavement programs or flow directly to organizations in our community that provide these services. The Winnipeg Foundation will provide charitable tax receipts for all gifts.
