Love you to the Moon and back
Sands is venturing on a special mission to the Moon and back.
Help us to raise a pound for every mile of our mission and create a legacy of hope and comfort for every bereaved family. Together we can take thousands of small steps to show the world how much every baby is loved.
We've got lots of different activities that are part of this campaign - find your favourite and sign up here.
Get your school or RAG involved
Whether you're a parent, teacher or student, we would love your help in involving your school in Sands' work.
With 13 babies dying every day in the UK, it's likely that at least one family in your school will have personally been affected - maybe even more. Help us break the silence around baby loss by opening up the conversation and fundraising for Sands.
We'll help you approach the headteacher, plan your fundraising event and provide materials to make it a success. Find out more by clicking here.
