Victoria's Candy - for a Good Cause!

Just a quick post to let you all know that Victoria has some wonderful candy on offer all in the aid of a very good cause.

Victoria is giving away this candy to raise funds for a charity very close to her heart,SANDs Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity:  Many of her regular followers will know that 3 years ago, Victoria's first baby Flynn tragically died when he was just two days old following birth complications at 42 weeks.Victoria would have been lost without the love and support she and her husband James both received from this wonderful charity. The death of a baby is a devastating experience , the effects of grief can be overwhelming for not just the parents but also for their families and friends, everyone concerned can be left feeling dazed, disorientated, isolated and exhausted. It can be hard to take in information, to make decisions or to imagine how you are going to cope. At Sands there are people who understand what it's like because many have been through this experience themselves, and are there to help & offer support and information when you need it'.In the UK alone, 17 babies are born asleep or die shortly after birth every single day.

How to help and enter: Victoria would like you to send her your handmade cards with envelopes and/or gifts wrapped in a saleable state. She will then pass these on to SANDs who will sell and keep 100% of the proceeds to help set up new SANDs groups across the UK.
Victoria will post back at a later date how much money is raised.
