Proceeds will benefit the Sea of Hope Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing support and assistance to families who have suffered infancy and pregnancy loss. Our mission is to be a beacon of support, offering solace, education and financial assistance during these difficult times. As we help navigate through the waves of grief we aim to create a supportive community and offer resources to help guide these families through their grief and find hope in the midst of their pain. We recognizes the impact of these losses on the entire family, including siblings who may also be grieving and in need of support. In addition to providing assistance to parents, the Sea of Hope Foundation also offers scholarships to bereaved siblings. These scholarships aim to empower and support them in their educational pursuits, helping them build a brighter future despite the challenges they have faced within their family. Through its comprehensive approach, the Sea of Hope Foundation strives to create a compassionate and inclusive environment, fostering healing, support, and opportunities for families who have suffered from infancy and pregnancy loss.
