The Birthday Project FAQs


WHAT IS THE BIRTHDAY PROJECT?

The AadenSage Birthday Project was started October 8, 2013 as a tangible way to remind grieving parents that they are seen and remembered and cared for; that they and their baby is forever loved. This tangible reminder comes in the form of an art print gifted from me to you (or to your friend or family member.) The design changes each year, but the message stays the same: "We haven't forgotten. And we love you."

Since October of 2013 we have sent these tangible reminders to more families than we can count. And with every gift that is sent, my heart overflows at what an honor it is to bless others in the midst of their grief and to celebrate my son at the same time.

 


WHY OCTOBER?

We chose October in honor of my son’s birthday (Aaden Sage Proffitt, 10.08.08 - 11.15.08). We love that October is also Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month -- a perfect time to gift a special reminder such as this.


HOW DOES THE BIRTHDAY PROJECT WORK?

Every year during the month of October, we send a small gift and a personal note to families who are grieving; reminding them that their little one is never forgotten and is forever loved.

To submit the name of a family member, friend or yourself simply:

  1. "ADD TO CART" the print of your choice. We only ask that you pay the shipping cost of $0.49 to help fund the cost of this project. If you would like to donate more to this project feel free to choose an amount from the dropdown menu.
  2. Feel free to leave a message for the recipient in the box located above the "Add to Cart" button.
  3. Click the "CHECK OUT" button when you are ready and complete the checkout process. Please remember to add the shipping address of the recipient if the address is different than your own. 
Submissions will be processed on a weekly basis so please allow 5-7 days for shipping notifications.

CAN I SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE NAME?

Absolutely! You can send as many art prints as you like! However, please keep in mind that you can only designate one shipping address per order. If the submissions will be going to different addresses you must place separate orders.


WHAT IS THE LAST DAY FOR BIRTHDAY PROJECT SUBMISSIONS? 

The AadenSage Birthday Project is for the entire month of October, ending October 31. After October 31st, the print will be available but at it's full price of $20.00.
