After a normal and routine 31 weeks of pregnancy, Donovan was stillborn on September 30, 2012. His parents want to assist other families experiencing the same tragedy by making their grieving process a little easier.
Every little act of kindness can make a big impact on someone else's life. Please help us provide support to families during an extremely tragic time in their life.
WE MAY NOT CARRY THEM IN OUR ARMS,
BUT WE WILL HOLD THEM IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER
Donovan Delivers is a 501(c)3 that provides financial support to families of stillborn babies. According to the CDC, there are approximately 24,000 stillbirths in the United States each year. The unfortunate reality is that there is limited support afforded to these families during this difficult time. Most significant others and family members are only given three to five days of paid bereavement leave to help care for the grieving mother and to grieve themselves. Many of these families are not financially prepared to take an unpaid leave of absence from their place of employment but no mother should be left to grieve alone while trying to physically recover from her delivery. Donovan Delivers wants to help take that financial burden off of these families.
