HealGrief, a nonprofit, is a social support network for people who are grieving, bereaved or for those just wanting to help them. By taking a modern approach to the way individuals communicate a loved one’s death, HealGrief brings family, friends and communities from around the globe to a virtual place to grieve and heal together. Everything they do is inspired by their core mission: guiding one’s journey with grief into a healthy grief recovery.
From the moment a loved one dies, HealGrief.org guides individuals through grief’s journey. They begin by taking the place of the traditional obituary. At no cost, users create a funeral notice and can choose to disseminate it to family and friends around the globe. From within the funeral notice, virtual candles are lit and memories are shared. Cathartic to users, this provides instant comfort as the funeral notice transitions into a celebration of the decedent’s life. This online interaction, changes the way we handle grief, but ultimately provides comfort as one journeys to a healthy grief recovery.
