Friends of Aine
When Bella was 5 years old, she was told on the morning of August 10, 2010, that her big sister Aine had died. In that instant Bella’s life…a family’s life, was shattered…forever. Aine died suddenly and unexpectedly from an undiagnosed lung disease. She was 8 years old. She is a daughter…and Bella’s big sister. She is courage, love, happiness. How does a parent tell a story this tragic to little Bella, to others, to the world? Where do kids go so they don’t feel alone? Where do these poor children get support and understanding from their peers?
The Friends of Aine Foundation was formed to build centers of support, safety and compassion for the children who feel alone because their brother or sister or mother or father died too soon. A percentage of your purchase of any of the The Friends of Aine Bracelets will go to The Friends of Aine Foundation – to build centers of support and compassion for these painfully sad and lonely kids.
