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.
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.
The good thing which came from this night, was meeting up with Kerri Ann from Our Angel Bears, she sat opposite us on table 13, the losers table!!! Haha!!
Since that night hooking up with Our Angel Bears, brian and I feel we are back on track with who we will be donating to. As much as we adore DSNE and we will continue our North events for them, we needed to give back to the babies lost, to the parents going through today, right now, the loss we went through back in 2013. But, we did not know how to go forward with this.
So, every cloud as they say....... we found our silver lining in the oddest of places that night in Warwick. Our babies were with us that night, networking harder than we were...Just look at all those golden butterflies hanging above our heads, every day this is happening.
Links below of what these amazing ladies do for the planet, self funded I might add, but not any more. We hope to set up our own just giving page for them.
Mearfest south will be donating to these guys from now on.
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 Claires passion, only the finest collection of images will be added here by the best photographers. We both hope you enjoy the show.
