Our Stuff Is Filled With the Souls of Those Who Touched It: Mourning the Loss of People and Things

Lisa-Goich-Stuff-Grief-Mattress

We spend our lives amassing things. From the time we’re born, people bring us “stuff.” Rattles and onesies, teddy bears and tub toys, shoes we can’t even walk with yet and savings bonds for our future. As we grow older, our stuff expands to include books and knick knacks, framed photos and candles, pillows and magazines, cars and tech devices.

Sponsor A Book In Your Loved One’s Memory!

FINAL Cover

When I wrote 14 Days, my vision was to have the book be a part of gift packages for families going through hospice, hospital grief groups, doctor’s offices and libraries. Many of these organizations don’t have the funds to buy books in bulk, therefore they have to be donated.

I want to put 14 Days into the hands of families going through grief and the loss of loved ones. And I’d love for you to be a part of this project! Every $20 donated will put one hard cover book into a hospice facility, a doctor’s office, waiting room, grief group or library. Each book will be signed and will include a PERSONALIZED BOOK PLATE dedicated to the memory of YOUR LOVED ONE. Their name will be printed on the bookplate and the book will be sent to a group in need within the United States. I hope to take the program international one day.

The more books that sell, the more individual families we can help. My goal is to have 100 books into the hands of patients, doctors and hospices by Mother’s Day! I eventually want to expand to include other grief-related books as well as food and comfort gift baskets for families going through loss. I will also be doing speaking engagements at hospitals across the country to promote the program.

Please share with friends and help those going through grief know that they aren’t alone.

Thank you!
