We wish to thank the thousands of people who voted for us from all over the world, for the three categories for the Butterfly awards recently.
We did not win. The whole thing seemed fixed.
I know it was not about winning, who really needs a bit of etched glass to say we have done well in the name of our Daughter Molly Mear. We felt the Butterflies did not understand what we do, or what Mearfest is about. However, we walked away head held high, feeling proud that Mearfest is a totally unique experience. We have managed to spread the forbidden word of stillbirth to every part of this globe with the help of our angel baby Molly's handprint, and then through the powerful genre of rock music, which has lightened the burden of loss for us. Not to mention the amount of money we have raised in her name £30,000 in just three years.
Mearfesters you are all unique people, each one of you are on this journey with us, for which we wish to thank you.
Thank you to philip Stuckey who the next day at Mearfest North, gave us his own Butterfly award on behalf of you all.
All these little gestures of love and support matter. This is why we give back to you all, with little gestures of love and support where we can.
Here is to 20/20 our new vision is to be bigger, to get louder, to give more.
Brian & Claire Mear pride themselves on putting on a good show. Photography is Claire's passion, only the finest collection of images will be added here by the best photographers.
