The TEARS Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organizaiton founded in 2002 by Sarah Slack of Puyallup, Washington in memory of her son, Jesse, who was stillborn in 2000. TEARS offers emotional and financial support for families like ours who have suffered the loss of a beloved baby before, during or after birth. Paul and I were fortunate to find a local TEARS-run support group and have greatly benefitted from the love, care and support of other families as we all learn and grieve together. Others are blessed to receive financial support from TEARS to help pay for the expenses of funeral services, burials and grave markers for their babies at a time when they should have been continuing to plan their babies' nurseries or be settling in with a newborn at home.
If you feel so moved, we would appreciate your help in reaching our goal of raising $250 to benefit TEARS so that their services can continue to shine a little light for a very dark time in the lives of other local families like ours.
