Swap 2017 Registration Opening Soon!

We are getting ready to host the eighth annual
 Remembering Together Ornament Swap!  

Registration will be open from November 1st - 12th, 2017. Reading the rules for the Swap and filling out the registration form are the first steps to receiving your Swap assignment! You can also look for the link on our facebook page, starting November 1st, 2017.

All the details about this year’s Swap can be found here on our blog.  If you are new to the Swap, please review the FAQ’s and info about the Swap’s intention; many of your questions will be answered there. If you are planning to participate, please be sure to read our three simple rules, regardless of whether or not you have participated in past years.

Important dates for this year’s Swap:
Wednesday, November 1st, 2017: registration/sign up opens.
Sunday, November 12th, 2017: registration/sign up closes at 6pm EST. Sorry, late registration is not possible, so don’t miss this deadline! 
Thursday, November 16th, 2017: all registrants receive their Swap assignments & crafting begins!
Tuesday, December 5th, 2017: all ornaments must be shipped to their recipients

The shipping date is especially important! Please think carefully before signing up about whether you have time and/or resources to commit to participating in the Swap. As much as you may be disappointed not to participate, it is also important to think of the disappointment & sadness caused when a family feels their child has been forgotten because their ornament never arrived; it can be devastating. By registering, you are making a commitment to another family. Please be honest with yourself about whether you will be able to honor this commitment, because to another parent/family, it means a lot!

Feel free to share this invitation to participate with others you may know in the baby loss community, and/or with your local support group, and any on-line baby loss forums.

Best wishes, and don'd forget to register, starting November 1st!

The Swap Team

IMPORTANT: Be sure to include Remembering Together in your email contacts so you do not miss any important & time-sensitive information regarding your Swap assignment & registration. Remembering Together NEVER shares your email & info with anyone.

Remembering Together 
is gearing up to begin its 
2017 Ornament Swap! 
Are you in?!

Each holiday season, we hold our annual ornament swap for parents and families who have lost babies. We know the holidays can be a tough time for those who are grieving this difficult loss. The ornament swap is a way to honor your baby(ies) & help make the holidays a time to cherish the memory of your child(ren). We hope you will join us this season. 

This year, registration for the Swap will be open from November 1st thru November 12th, 2017. When you sign up [using our registration form], you agree to handcraft a special ornament for another family's baby, and in turn, someone handcrafts one for yours. We do have a few golden rules that we ask you read and agree to, and registration is quick and easy. Participating in the Swap is fun, and giving & receiving an ornament can be very special and cathartic. Once you sign up, honoring your commitment to the Swap is also very important, so please consider carefully what your time constraints are this season before signing up.

Each year, the number of participants in the Swap grows, so we are looking forward to our biggest Swap season yet. Spread the love and please let others know who you think might be interested! Our email address is rememberingswaps@gmail.com if you would like to join our mailing list -- please be sure to put us in your contacts so you do not miss any time-sensitive info regarding this year's swap. 

Looking forward to having you along!
The Swap Team
