Many of my friends have asked recently about our plans for the 5th of July.
On the day, we will mourn the loss of our baby boy afresh as the time will mark, cruelly, a year since Georgie left us.
I know that this boy is loved by many more people than we will ever know and I decided to include you all in the marking of what has been the most difficult year of our lives.
On the day, we will be on our own. We will spend the day remembering a sweet boy’s face, personality and character and will do things to honour his short life.
This is where I want to invite you to take part.
I want to launch a campaign called #LiveItForGeorgie.
I want to invite you all, alongside family members and friends, to create a bank of memories in the memory of my boy.
You see, Georgie never got to do many things on this earth.
The simplest things, that we all take for granted.
….eating an ice cream.
…playing in the park.
…writing a check to a charity.
…writing a letter to a friend or total stranger.
…sitting on the grass.
…singing in the choir.
…hugging a friend in need.
…visiting a beautiful place.
…taking a stunning picture.
…playing a prank on a friend.
…taking a challenge to help others.
…picking up flowers.
I invite you from now, until the 5th of July to join in and create a life for him here on earth.
Through your actions.
They can be as mundane or as heroic as you choose them to be.
Just choose a moment in your life.
And then, please, dedicate it to my boy.
Make the world a teensy bit better in his memory.
Send him a wave and a hug, which I feel strongly he will feel up above, where he is.
Envelop him with love in action on the day he was called home.
And let him know, as we will, that he was never forgotten, that he is always missed and that he is loved.
Oh, so loved…
Please tag and share your actions on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or, if you prefer to keep it private, send me a private message with the picture.
Thank you so very much!

On July 5 I will think of a sweet beautiful baby, the nephew I was never meant to meet, hug and love. I will think of the family’s big loss, of my loss I dare say.
What a beautiful idea to remember a beautiful baby boy. I hug Pickle a bit tighter after reading this – and recent money worries just fade away. 5 July is this weekend – I will think of you all and #LiveitforGeorgie Kaz x x
