The Finley Project – Founded by Noelle Moore after the tragic loss of her daughter Finley, this is an organization that is free to grieving moms. It’s a seven part holistic healing program that partners grieving mommas with volunteer mentors. I met Noelle the day my son died and talked with her a few weeks later. She has a huge heart for moms, and dads, who have lost their children. Working with the Finley Project is a huge part of my healing process and has connected me with a therapist and counselor who are helping me process my grief.
Project Robby – A non-profit started by Tanner and Amanda Smith after their son Robby passed away, they send out hat and blanket bereavement sets to parents who have also lost children. On their site you can request one for yourself or for a hospital. What an amazing legacy for their precious son Robby.
