A Request for Your Help

I normally don't ask people to vote in online contests, but I'm going to make an exception this one time.

When your child dies, you are left with the most indescribable feeling of emptiness. In some cases there is no record of your child. No recognition of their life. No birth certificate, not even a death certificate.

To Write Their Names In The Sand honors, remembers and recognizes the lives of children lost.

It is an emotional and moving web page.

Each day at sunset, a lovely woman from Australia named Carly goes to the beach, writes names of children who have gone to heaven in the sand, and takes a photo. She does this in honor of her own son, Christian, who they lost two years ago.

They receive on average 150 name requests a day. Their dream is to bring warm light back into bereaved families lives. They wish for everyone hope and peace.

Carly has entered an online Canon photo contest where she can win a new Canon camera and $60,000 to donate to her charity of choice, SIDS and Kids Australia.

Please take a moment to help her out and click on this link to vote for her.
