As we are preparing to enter the 2016 holiday season, (and what can usually be termed by most people as a stressful time of the year), I bring you a series entitled "Shops with a Cause" - because, giving back never gets old.
Reagan Twenty Five, LLC was started by Heather Bienz in October 2015 and named after her 2nd daughter, Reagan Bienz. Heather lost Reagan on May 28, 2015 during her 25th week of pregnancy to Turner Syndrome.
"Turner Syndrome is a chromosomal disorder that occurs when all or part of one of the female X chromosomes is lost before or soon after the time of conception. It is not connected to or passed on from either parent and there is nothing a person can do to increase or decrease the chance of this happening."
Because Heather and her husband were advised that Turner Syndrome is a "random" occurrence and not hereditary, they were told their chances of conceiving another baby with Turner Syndrome would be extremely rare. Despite Doctor assurances, they lost their 3rd daughter, Hannah, on March 23, 2016 to Turner Syndrome.
October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month, when we remember the little ones who have left us too soon, but are forever carried in the hearts of their parents.
As a result of these devastating losses, Heather has chosen to impact the lives of others, by forming Reagan Twenty Five, a faith based clothing company, selling apparel, accessories and gifts. Of the proceeds, 25% are always donated to help support other families impacted by infant loss.
There are special occasions throughout the year when 100% of all proceeds are donated:
February - Turner Syndrome Awareness Month
March 23rd - Hannah's birthday
May 28th - Reagan's birthday
October 15th - Infant and pregnancy loss awareness day
TODAY, 100% of the proceeds will be donated. And, today happens to be their one (1) year SHOP ANNIVERSARY!
"I hope to create a community of support, inspiration and love all while encouraging others that by having faith and trust in God, we can make it through this life with hope, peace and comfort no matter how difficult our circumstances may be. Each one of you who share your stories with me not only help heal my heart, but also remind me that God provides beauty no matter how deep the pain.
Thank you for your love and support! I ask for your prayers while I continue this journey of spreading God's word through my story as a wife to my husband, Jeramy and as a mama to my three girls; Harper, Reagan & Hannah."
