The Twilight Market is the highlight in Alfie's Butterfly Garden. A plentiful of local handmade goodies and produce will showcase the best of Adelaide's market scene. If you or your business wish to host a stall at the Twilight Market, please Register here.
To honour the babies who are no longer with us earth-side, we release live butterflies at twilight to send our birthday wishes up to them in the sky.
Butterflies are available for pre-purchase by visiting our Online Shop.
Birthday for Babies is a fundraising initiative by Still Aware. Still Aware was formed by mother to a baby born still, at 40 weeks in South Australia.
Alfie Foord-Heath was born without breath on February 12, 2014. With no rhyme or reason for the death of this healthy baby girl, her mother and father - with the guidance of an advisory board and your help - aim to change how we talk about stillbirth prior to the tragedy, raising awareness in hopes of prevention.
Birthday for Babies is held on Alfie's birthday every year, as a way for Alfie's parent's Claire and Brad, as well as the other families affected by this tragedy, to join together and celebrate their babies.
Birthday for Babies began this year, in 2015, as a remembrance for the over 2500 babies born still in Australia every year and to raise awareness of the 6 families daily affected by such tragedy. The first of this annual event was held in memory of Alfie Foord-Heath, a beautiful angel who was born without breath of February 12th, 2014. Alfie's mother, Claire, founder of Still Aware, had the vision to create an event where all babies can celebrate their birthday, alongside her daughter.
The twilight butterfly release made for a perfect commemoration of the precious little souls who’s birthdays we were celebrating.
