OCTOBER - Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
October 15th is International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Day, where bereaved parents from Australia and around the world pause to remember their babies who’ve died.
This annual day of remembrance is always acknowledged on the SIDS and Kids SA calendar, honouring the thousands of babies who lose their lives to miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death each year.
This year, to honour each and every little life lost too soon, SIDS and Kids SA are selling a potted Marigold for the entire month of October. Placing your order in our online 'Shop' ensures $8.00 from every potted Marigold sold will be supporting our professional grief counselling service for South Australian families.
We would like to thank Jongs Nursery for their support in supplying the potted Marigolds to make this community fundraiser possible.
Marigolds are open when the sun is out. It's also called the “herb of the sun”, representing passion and even creativity. It is also said that the marigold symbolises grief.
It can mean to show strong passion, being associated with the
legendary brave and courageous lion.
