Fairy Tales for Hope is an arts based fundraiser that was set up last year by clever Melbourne illustrator Tonia Composto in honour of her friend's Sally and Simon Heppleston's stillborn daughter, Hope. Prints are still available for sale through the Stillbirth Foundation Australia, with all funds raised going directly to fund stillbirth research and awareness.
The unique fairy tale inspired prints were created in August last year, one for every day of the month of Hope's birthday. This year, Hope would have been five. She was stillborn at 41 weeks after a healthy pregnancy.
The prints come in two sizes 25cm X 25cm ($20 plus $12 shipping) and 15cm X 15cm ($10 plus $6 shipping). The prints make a gorgeous gift for new babies to decorate nurseries or would be a lovely Christmas present for people of all ages. While some of the more popular prints have sold out in the larger size, all prints are still available in the smaller size and the full set can be purchased for $250.
