Charlotte's Purpose was created in honor of Charlotte Elizabeth Carnaghan, who was stillborn at 38 weeks. The site is a collection of resources, writings, and ideas for mothers, fathers/partners, siblings, and grandparents who have experienced a stillbirth, as well as for those who hope to support others going through such an awful experience. We hope that Charlotte's Purpose brings some light to the long process of rebuilding after loss.
The Charlotte's Purpose crew is gearing up for the 4th Annual Weekend of Kindness! This year the Charlotte's Purpose crew will be focusing our efforts and fundraising on ONE project: hospital care packages for families facing stillbirth.
Did you know 1 in 160 births in the US ends in stillbirth? Unfortunately numbers have increased during the Covid-19 pandemic. Covid precautions usually limit hospital visitors meaning that families face this loss more alone than ever. Our care packages provide a small kindness to families as they begin to navigate the mountain of complex grief. Please consider supporting the Care Packages project by purchasing a Kindness Moves Mountains Tee or Tote or donating items on our project wish list.
