Kingston's Birthday Gift

(Picture courtesy of The Vintage Pearl)

Right after my twins were born (almost TWO years ago!!), I bought myself this necklace from The Vintage Pearl.  I love it so much!  It's like my secret way of telling the world that I have one more kid than what their eyes see.

Now, as I said, the twins are almost two years old.  I cannot believe all we have done since then.  I miss my little Kingston more than words can express, but I'm beyond grateful for the little memories I have of him.  Some examples are his hand and foot molds, his bear made from the blanket he was wrapped in at the hospital, and all of the photos we have of him.  All of this was provided to us by an amazing organization called Angel Watch.  The best thing that ever happened to our situation!  They blessed our life beyond measure.

For Kingston's birthday this year, I want to give back to Angel Watch.  I thought to myself, "Self, what have you just adored from this whole experience that you could provide for other families in the same situation?"  I came up with this idea.... Hand-stamped necklaces with the angel baby's name on it and their birthstone.  Yes!  Perfect!  Like I said, I adore mine.  I wear it with pride and I want other mother's to feel the same way about the babies that they lose all too soon.  So, I have purchased the supplies and will soon be making hand-stamped necklaces.

This is where you come in.  I obviously cannot fund this project on my own.  What I'm asking is this.  Could you spare a few dollars to help out families that lose their babies?  My goal is to raise $200 by August 11th (Kingston's birthday).  I hope to be able to raise enough money to at least provide this service for the next year and hopefully more!  If you would rather, you could purchase a name necklace for yourself and all proceeds will go back into this project.

You can use the "Donate" button in this post or in the right side bar if you feel like donating.

 If you want to purchase a necklace, use the "Buy Now" button either in this post or in the right side bar.  If you purchase a necklace, please TRIPLE check the spelling of the names.  The necklace will look very similar to the one you see above from The Vintage Pearl except a different font (but I assure you, it is just as adorable).  I will post pictures as I start making the necklaces so you can see just how amazing they are!

Thank you in advance for your support!  I cannot even tell you how many lives this is going to bless.  Thank you, thank you!

I love this and want to help. I would like purchase a necklace. I already have one for my Angel and love it!!! I would like to know about doing a charm one with all my kids like a mother's ring. I see it is $10 a name so my total would be $50. Would you like me to pay shipping as well if you are able to do all my kids.

I love this! Absolutely love the tortoiseshell too- think I might have to treat myself. Would you like to wear a Name necklace with your loved one's name on it? Get a name necklace at today!!

I am interested in purchasing a necklace from you. Is there a limit to how many letters can be put on the charm? (wondering if first and middle name would fit)

Hone Family as in Ryan and Ashley said...

I could probably comfortably fit around 12-14 letters.
