MEET MEL & ANDO
The following story may be triggering for some people. Please be aware this story touches on stillbirth & bereavement.
In 2020 Mel & Ando shared with the world their exciting news that they were expecting their first child. Unfortunately on Father’s Day of 2020 just shy of 24 weeks, Mel went into spontaneous labour and gave birth to a baby boy. Mel & Ando held their baby boy in their arms for only a short time but they will hold him in their hearts forever. Since the birth of Ollie James Lee Anderson, Mel & Ando have dedicated their time to raising awareness on cervical insufficiency, stillbirth, bereavement, pregnancy after loss, and rainbow babies. At Sonny & Rein we stand with Mel & Ando and are proud to present our brand new Ollie Bundle.
‘The Ollie Bundle’ represents love, hope & light, a reminder that even after loss our babies remain with us and we carry them in our hearts always 🤍 From every Ollie Bundle sold Sonny & Rein will donate $2 to Bears of Hope to assist in their continued support for families who experience the loss of their baby.
The Ollie Bundle includes;
- A wooden keepsake box with the option to personalise
- ‘Forever in our Hearts’ boxed journal
- Woodwick mini candle available in three colours- Pink, Blue & Green (pictured)
