"Lost Lives, Give Life"

This is copied from Rachel @ The Pughs

Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. So, today I am praying for all of you out there that are remembering all the babies you never got the chance to meet and those who were gone too soon. Here is how this day is remembered: 

To celebrate the memory of these babies, I encourage you to visit one of my favorite blogs (As mentioned Here) to help save the life of a child. The blog is called Stuff Christians Like and they are having a day to raise funds to purchase malaria nets for the Nakaseke District of Uganda. 100% of the money goes to purchase these nets. More than a million people a year die of Malaria. Most of these are under the age of 5.
1 Net = $10 = 1 life saved
When you purchase your net, you will be sent GPS coordinates to go to Google Earth and check out the location of the person that YOU saved. You can click here to visit SCL's blog article or HERE to donate. After you donate a net (or 2 or 3 :) you can put in the comments of the SCL blog post that you are donating in memory of your baby or in honor of those celebrating Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
