2nd Annual Deck the Halls Holiday Fundraiser

the second annual Deck the Halls Holiday Fundraiser in support of PAIL Network on November 27th at the Ramada Inn on Exeter Rd in London from 10am-3pm. This is a third party fundraising event I helped start last year after suffering a life changing and earth shattering miscarriage. We successfully raised over $1300 in our first year as well as collecting multiple pages that helped get Bill 141: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness, Research and Care Act, passed in record time. I want to aim to top that this year and really need help spreading the word about the event. There is no such thing as a demographic for this cause as this effects women, men, children, couples, families all ages etc. 1 in 4 women will end their pregnancy in a miscarriage and its not recognized enough
