Aquene’s Army | Empowering Parents with Owlet
October 16, 2016
TRIGGER WARNING :: For mentions of infant death due to SIDS.
Meet Leah Gallahorn, a mom who is on a mission to change lives and create a beautiful legacy in memory of her daughter, Aquene.
Leah lost her daughter, Aquene, whose name means “peace,” to SIDS at just two and a half months old this past December. In the months that followed, Leah started seeing Owlet on her Facebook feed—she had never heard of Owlet before, and wondered if she didn’t know about it, how many of her friends didn’t know either? Leah then purchased two Owlet Monitors for friends, because she wanted them to benefit from this incredible technology, designed to empower parents. Leah started hearing from families across the country who needed an Owlet, and from there, Aquene’s Army was born.
Leah has made Aquene’s Army part of her life’s mission, continuing to raise money and donating Owlets to families in need. Owlet now matches donations to Aquene’s Army dollar for dollar. Leah has donated more than 100 Owlet Monitors (and counting!).
We’re honored to help Leah and support her mission of empowering parents. Thank you, Leah, for all you do!
