WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
HealGrief is dedicated to support the bereaved by offering a virtual location, without geographical boundaries, where individuals and a community can communicate a death, connect, mourn and heal, while celebrating a loved one’s life.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
There’s a huge taboo surrounding death that results in few conversations about this inevitable part of our life cycle. People often bottle up the feelings and emotions associated with bereavement. We live in a culture where “time heals everything” and we’re supposed to just “get over it.” There’s a stigma and a myriad of misconceptions about grief that a more compassionate world would help alleviate. Healgrief.org is working to remove these taboos and stigma.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
By taking advantage of technology and social media, HealGrief.org takes a modern approach to the way individuals communicate a loved one’s death. HealGrief.org uses the technology and brings family, friends and communities from around the globe to a local place to grieve and heal together.
HealGrief.org helps individuals through the grieving process from the moment a loved one dies. HealGrief.org starts by taking the place of the traditional obituary notice. At no cost, users create a funeral notice, disseminate it to family and friends around the globe and gain instant comfort as condolences are expressed, virtual candles are lit and memories are shared, transforming the funeral notice into a celebration of the decedent’s life.
