Memory of loved ones planted firmly in our minds thanks to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s latest fundraising initiative
Anyone who has experienced loss knows how important it is to have something they can remember their loved ones by and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s ‘Remember Your Star’ campaign helps supporters pay tribute and celebrate the lives of those who are no longer with us.
Launched last year, the charity’s online memorial depicts a scenic landscape with one of its lifesaving aircraft in a dark night sky and features a series of stars and poignant remembrance messages in memory of those who have passed. Several supporters have already dedicated virtual stars in memory of their loved ones, which has helped raise vital funds for the rapid response emergency service.
This year, in addition to the virtual star and message on the virtual sky scene, donors will also receive a keepsake card and seeded star from the charity, which can be planted in the garden to ensure the memory of their loved one is planted in their minds and hearts for years to come.
Emma Gray, chief operating officer for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Losing a loved one is an overwhelming experience and deciding how to remember them – be it quietly or with something more tangible – can be a daunting task.
“Planting has long been a popular way to celebrate a life – the flowers from our seeded cards come back year after year so when they bloom, they’ll provide comfort to those who are missing a loved one and while they’re no longer here, spiritually, they’ll always feel close by.”
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s ‘Remember Your Star’ campaign helps celebrate the lives of loved ones in a positive and dignified way. Donors can dedicate as many stars as they wish to let their loved ones shine bright.
