"Finding hope and healing after the death of a baby through outreach, education, research, and retreats."
October is International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. As you know, this is a topic close to our hearts, and the loss of our son Norbert was the inspiration behind creating the film Return To Zero.
This year we are partnering with 2020 Mom and raising money for hospital care packages that will be given to bereaved parents in the hospital after their loss. We hope this will provide a little comfort during this unfathomable time in their lives.
Our goal is modest this year, we want to raise the money for 100 care packages. If you're in the position to to so, we'd love your help. $20 will support one family, $250 will supply one hospital with care packages for all bereaved families for 6 months.
One of the ways we facilitate our own healing is by helping others going through a similar experience. Please consider supporting grieving families. Fundraising details can be found here.
In 2014, Kiley Hanish and her husband Sean made RETURN TO ZERO in the belief that as a film, it would help to shatter the stigma and silence associated with stillbirth. By sharing their personal tragedy, they wished that others would find healing and even hope for the future. RETURN TO ZERO became much more than they anticipated - the film launched as a grass roots movement that has reached across continents and language barriers and has galvanized a global community.
The success of the movie continues to help those who have experienced the heartbreak of stillbirth to feel as though they are not alone. It has created and inspired communities around the world that allow people to grieve a loss that has heretofore been silent in society, and its impact has been transcendent for people who have only known grief in solitude.
The Return to Zero Center for Healing developed organically and as a result of the film's positive impact. It helps women and their families find hope and healing after the death of their baby through outreach, education, and retreats.
