I’ve already shared the drone photos I took of the Sleeping Angels Fun Run and the sweet video that Logan made, but I haven’t shared the pictures I took from my ground camera. Which doesn’t have a sweet name like Rodan139. Maybe I should remedy that. Although I’m on like 6th (just guessing) primary camera since I took up photography and I’ve never given a camera a name. I’ll have to think on it.
Here are the pictures:
A reminder, in case you forgot what Sleeping Angels is:
The Sleeping Angels Foundation is an Iowa volunteer based non-profit organization that will assist families in the State of Iowa who have or will suffer due to loss of a child. (This includes neonatal, perinatal and infant loss.) The Sleeping Angels Foundation director and officers will determine to whom the donation will be donated to.
Our founder and his wife lost their daughter, Maggie Nicole Droste, who was born with Trisomy 18. Maggie lived for 3 hours before passing away.
Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards syndrome, is a condition which is caused by an error in cell division, known as meiotic disjunction. Trisomy 18 occurs in about 1 out of every 2500 pregnancies in the United States, about 1 in 6000 live births. The numbers of total births increase significantly when stillbirths are factored in that occur in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy.
Our objective is to make varying monetary donations to families, depending on the individual family’s needs. I.e. headstone, funeral costs, medical bills, etc. Since no one’s situation is the same, the director and officers of the Sleeping Angels Foundation will evaluate on a case by case basis and determine what would help the family the most.
The Sleeping Angels Foundation will hold events created by our officers throughout the year to raise funds.
