    Sibling participation...

    SHARE Atlanta encourages sibling's pre-festival participation: if your baby’s sibling wishes to have an ornament from him/her in memory of his/her sibling. Please include this information on any donation. They can 'visit' the finished tree, and the children's activities at the festival are wonderful!. I took my boys there every year to start the holiday season!

    SHARE Atlanta's Plan - 2006

    SHARE Atlanta's theme “Snow Angel Topper"...Forever in our hearts” for Memorial Tree

    The tree is provided, at a cost of $100., by the festival then we are to decorate it. We will need to buy lights and additional decorations (other than the ornaments donated by our parents and families) for the tree.

    Our SHARE Atlanta parents, grandparents, friends, etc. will donate ornaments that go along with our Snow Angel Topper. We will include our baby’s name in our own “memorial” handout, online, and on the tree so others will know that we will not forget these little ones. We will also include pictures of the tree on our website.

    "Festival Committee"

  • Attends a pre-planning gathering on Sept. 20 (we will have Jersey Mike's for dinner) at 6 pm. just before our regularly scheduled Women's Group. All else will be done via email, on the morning of November 18th, then on November 28th which is the set-up date.

    You can be a part of either or both the pre-planning and Nov. set-up, just let me know that you are interested in participating.

  • Plans and buys the rest of the decorations (lights, ribbons, etc.)

  • Makes or buys a tree skirt

  • SHARE Atlanta will cover the costs involved and hopefully further donations will help us...

    We are pleased that we will have another opportunity for outreach and for remembering our special children.
