2019 Angels on Earth
The Angels on Earth award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to supporting bereaved families and raising awareness to the silence that often surrounds infertility, miscarriage, early neonatal loss, still birth, and infant loss. It is presented at The Angel Ball each year.
Jason and Leigh got married on August 26, 2017. Shortly before their wedding, they discovered Kennedy’s Angel Gowns through Facebook and learned who Kennedy Wilson was. They knew they wanted to help in any way they could.
The Wahr’s ultimately decided Leigh’s wedding dress would be donated to support our cause. Since this happened right before their wedding, they put together a card that shared where Leigh’s dress was going. They wanted to spread the word in hopes their decision would prompt their guests to support Kennedy’s Angel Gowns. The Wahr’s had numerous responses with people making wedding gown donations and monetary donations.
Jason and Leigh couldn’t imagine the pain that would come from losing a child. They have not been affected personally by pregnancy and infant loss. Yet, they are passionate about supporting our organization— which they plan to continue doing.
