TOO SOON virtual gallery and auction
The TOO SOON gallery and auction are live!
TOO SOON is a gallery of markers and guardians at the grave sites of infants and children. These are symbols of love and grief. The loss of a child is the most unnatural, as the English language suggests - there are words for a husband who loses his wife, a wife who loses her husband, and a child who loses her parents. There is no word for a parent who has lost a child. Approximately one in four women experiences the loss of a pregnancy or infant during her lifetime.
The auction revenue will split 50-50 between The TEARS Foundation and Shannon MacFarlane Photography. The TEARS Foundation is a nonprofit that compassionately assists bereaved parents with financial support for final arrangements and emotional support; TEARS has chapters in 19 states and offers up to $500 per family for final arrangements. Shannon MacFarlane Photography witnesses the joys and sorrows of families living with loss, grief, medical hardship, and special needs. It operates as a for-benefit organization under a pay-what-you-will or pay-it-forward pricing model to serve families who have exhausted financial resources in the care of their own.
