Australian & New Zealand purchases made through this website will enable us to give back to a family doing it really tough and in need of loving support. 25% of the profits from every copy of 'Welcome Home' & 50% of the profits from every set of 'With Love, For Mama Affirmation Cards' made through alishabourke.com will be donated to Hayley Wernicke, her husband Diego and their three beautiful daughters.
Hayley is a really dear friend to me and our friendship has only continued to blossom over the past few years. Hayley's photography was the inspiration for most of the pages in our book 'Welcome Home', so without her magical eye to capture the perfect moments, this book would not convey the message we are trying to share about birth so eloquently.
At the start of the year Hayley pulled into her driveway after capturing a Magical Birth to find an ambulance near her husband and three young daughters. Diego had suffered a seizure whilst trying to get their children into the car and off to school for the morning.
After many scans and tests it was discovered that there were two masses in Diego's brain that were later identified as cancer. As Diego was the main provider for their family and is now unable to work, huge financial and emotional strain has been placed on this beautiful young family. The mounting cost of living and cancer treatments is currently a huge burden and being able to give back to them in any way is important to us.
Please know that with every purchase you make not only are you helping me to fulfill a lifelong dream of being a published author and helping to normalize birth for future generations; you are also contributing to this amazing family.
