Petition (please sign!): to raise Awareness of our Loss

Hi Everyone,

As you know, International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day (Oct. 15th) is recognized in the USA and Canada. Petitions like this one brought about these achievements. I ask you to please take 30 seconds, to add your name to this brand new petition at:

It asks for your email address, only so you can confirm (at a 'click' of the mouse) that you've added your name to the list. (This is done to make sure that the name was added by a person, not generated automatically). Your email will NOT be made public (i.e. it won't be on the petition), and your email will not be shared -- NO spam, I promise!!

You can add your name to this petition, no matter which country you live in. It's to get Oct. 15th recognized in Australia too, but everyone's name counts.

This month, I met with both my local State and Federal MPs: two respected and compassionate women who are totally behind this. They will bring this petition to Parliament in about 3 weeks' time. So please add your name today!

Thank you ever so much.

Hugs all around,

Thank you, Rachel

Thanks for letting me know right away. My technically inclined husband is looking into it right now -- to correct it. It's strange because we trialed it when it was first set up.

This is so frustrating!! I just spent the bulk of my day emailing people about this petition, and there's also an article coming out about it in tomorrow's newspaper.

I'd better go make myself a herbal tea -- need to relax and let go of the worry...

Thanks again. I'll start a fresh thread to let everyone know when the petition is running properly.

Thank you for your support.

If your name does not show up on petition -- solution!!

Hi all,

Thank you very much for signing the petition. There's a glitch in the software however -- some people are being brought to an earlier 'cached' version of the website. So their signature is not actually on the newer version. Nothing can prevent that from your end, I'm afraid. But there IS a solution!

[Yes, this has been making me crazy!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited on Monday, And now I'm so getting so teeth-grittingly frustrated -- grrrrr! Anyway....on to the solution]

If you don't mind sending ma a Private Message with your full name and email, I can enter it into the petition for you. That's the only way around this problem. You have my word that I won't share your details with anyone -- not on this website and nowhere else.

So sorry for the hassle. And thank you so much for your support.

Thanks so much,
