Michael Melilli's latest update for 3point8

Aug 26, 2015

First of all, I can't thank you all enough for supporting me and this project.  It's been overwhelming to how many of you have pre-ordered "3point8" or spread the word.

After a lot of thought, I've decided that, should this book get published and I make any money, 50% of anything I receive will go to Forever Footprints (http://www.foreverfootprints.org/).  They’re an amazing organization that works to support families that have suffered a pregnancy or infant loss.

Besides providing support and education, Forever Footprints also has a program that donates Memory Boxes to families and hospitals.  While I’m not sure they put Piper’s memory box together, I do know that it’s become a treasured remembrance of our little girl.  Having something tangible to hold on to makes a big difference.

This book started as a healing exercise for myself.  If it can help others as well, if Piper’s death can help bring light to other parents who are hurting,  it would mean the world to me.

If you’d like to support this organization directly (either with money or materials), you can do so here: http://www.foreverfootprints.org/how-you-can-help/donate/

Thanks again for your support!
