Yasminah was stillborn on the 26th March 2009 and this year will mark her 2nd birthday. We wanted to do something to celebrate her life and the gift she has helped bring to so many through the Charity set up in her memory Yasminah’s Gift Of Hope. We thought what better way than to release butterflies in memory of Yasminah and all the other precious children and the families we support.
"A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world: but then it flies again. And though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it." Author Unknown.
We welcome you to bring along your family and friends and join us to release a Butterfly and meet with other angel families at Central Gardens in Merrylands on Saturday the 26th March 2011. Central Gardens is a natural oasis of calm in the middle of busy Merrylands, 5 minutes from Parramatta. It is bordered by the Cumberland Highway, Paton Street and Merrylands Road. The 12 hectares of natural bushland with sparkling cascades, bush areas and beautiful trees provide plenty of space to stroll, play games, watch the birds and enjoy the fresh air. We will be in the Yarrabee Area of the park. There are two electric BBQs and five picnic tables and benches surrounding the shelter. The area is adjacent to children’s play equipment and can hold up to 200 people. So please RSVP so you don’t miss out.
Each Butterfly comes in a very special individual keepsake box that you get to keep after releasing your butterfly into the clear blue sky. We will be releasing Monarch butterfly’s, they are a spectacular butterfly, that are large and colourful and their flight pattern is graceful. They are also ‘people friendly’ (ie. they will not be afraid of humans). They are native to all areas of Australia, so they will naturally live out their lifecycle in any habitat in which they are released.
Butterflys are $20 to purchase and payment can be made into the following account.

You are welcome to purchase a butterfly even if you can’t physically make it to the event, we will release it in honour of your child and provide you with a very special photo as a keepsake of the occasion.

We hope you will be able to join us to remember, honour and celebrate Yasminah and your own angels.
Wishing you all Hope, Light, Love and Happiness
