We're not just looking to build a website, we're looking to build a community.
What do we give someone who is grieving?
It is difficult to find just the right gift that tells someone how much we care and understand that they are hurting. It might be that we don’t want to visit for the first time after the loss, empty handed. It is a holiday, but it has been such a short period of time that a sweater or a cookbook would seem out of place. It is the birthday of their loved one and we don’t want the day to pass unnoticed, or it is the anniversary of the death and we want them to know that we haven’t forgotten.
So what do we bring?
The Grief Toolbox Marketplace will be a resource for people looking for just this type of perfect gift. The Marketplace will sell resources such as books, DVDs and CDs as well as memorial gifts. The gifts here will be unique, some handcrafted by artists who having experienced their own grief and want to reach out to others and help with memorial gifts.
We will be continuing to add to the Marketplace if you are an artist, poet, author, photographer, or crafter with a product that will bring hope and remembrance to someone grieving the loss of a loved one and would like a venue to reach others please consider filling out a vendor application.
We're always looking for speakers, writers, products, and good support groups. If you would like to participate in any way, let us know.
When someone we love has died many of us crave information..
- What do we do now?
- When is this going to get better?
- What can I do to help myself?
- Has anyone ever felt like I do?
We want to know that we are not alone, we want to be given some hope that we can survive the pain and we want to know that we are normal. Who better than someone who has been on this journey to bring comfort and hope to the bereaved then those of us who have been there.
