Here in the UK, 15 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth, every single day. On average, every 90 minutes, or 1.5 hours, another family is left devastated by the sudden and tragic death of their precious baby. We want to raise awareness of these figures and highlight the wide-reaching affects the death of a baby has on the family, friends, colleagues and health professionals.
We would like all our corporate partners to get involved and support our Sands Awareness month in June. Share the hashtag #15babiesaday to help raise awareness or just take the number 15 and turn it into something positive.
With your amazing help we can raise vital funds to help support anyone affected by the death of a baby and research into the reasons why so many are dying.
Supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, working to improve bereavement care and promoting research to reduce the loss of babies' lives Getting involved couldn’t be easier – just take the number 15 and turn it into something positive. Over the page are a few fundraising ideas of how you might like to continue the 15 theme.
