Hello Grief provides information and resources about grief in order to break through the current culture of avoidance that surrounds death and loss. Instead, Hello Grief addresses bereavement head-on for those who are helping others cope, as well as those who need support on their own personal journey with grief. In a world that doesn’t get it, we do.
SLAP’D aspires to provide teens who have lost a parent with an online community of support to help ensure that they are not alone, to inspire hope, and to provide them with important resources throughout the grieving process.
SLAP’D exists as a social media site for teens 13 and older (or younger than 13 with adult supervision) who have lost a parent to find hope and connection through shared experiences, and aims to ensure that no teen ever has to experience their grief alone. SLAP’D offers our users articles, advice forums, an ask-an-expert column staffed by bereavement professionals, and connections to other resources for grieving kids and teens.
Too Damn Young was founded with the sole purpose of letting any grieving teenager know they are not alone. At the basis, they want to be a resource. Their expert articles, personal accounts, fiction, poems, and other creative outlets are all intended to be relatable and informative content.
“To borrow from something someone once told me, we’re an army of grievers. Our journeys are all different, but our starting points are all the same. We’ve all lost someone we love. Now we’re left to figure out a new normal. Too Damn Young is a hand to hold while we figure this out.”
Research shows that about 1 in 3 college students experience a death of a family member or close friend who died within the last 12 months. It is likely that this statistic remains true for all young adults, ages 18-25, as a whole. Actively Moving Forward® (AMF) is a national network created in response to the needs of grieving young adults, ages 18-25.
For over a decade, we have connected, supported and empowered grieving young adults to “actively move forward” in memory of their person. These young adults support one another and are encouraged to actively move forward in memory of their person. Some do it with Kindness in Action and while doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country. This program is currently actively moving forward coast-to-coast.
