Join us in encouraging and supporting great conversations with children and teens about death, mourning, and grief.

Share Your "Dear Me" Letter
Take a moment and remember what it felt like to be a grieving child. Remember all the things that fell into place after the death, good and hard times, people who supported and put you down, things that helped and things that didn’t.
What lessons did you learn? What do you remember about that time? What was most helpful? How did your loss as a youth, contribute to who you are today? Please share your insights as a tool to help others. Write these things down as a letter to your younger self and share them with us this November. With your letter you can help today’s grieving kids see that there is a future ahead.
