BENEFITING: OUR HOUSE

ORGANIZER: OUR HOUSE

EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2012

THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

I know most of you know my involvement with the grief support agency, OUR HOUSE; that I have volunteered in so many capacities as an intake person, (meeting individuals for sometimes the very first time they have spoken about their grief), facilitating groups, being a board member, and chairperson of the agency as well.

Helping others on their journey of hope and healing is so gratifying, I know how much I would have benefited from the groups when my mother, Blanche, and father, Stanley both died. I could have been with others who felt the same way, but I knew no one who was going through the same thing and felt awful that I was burdening ( in my own head, not theirs) my loved ones and friends with the journey of my grief. I was 45. Can you imagine what if feels like to be a child of 5, 10, or 15 and having to deal with the death of your parent?  Or a young widow with a baby?  Or a parent mourning their child? That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with OUR HOUSE.  There was and there is a place for these children, as well as adults, to be with others who are going through the difficult journey of grief.

I know that I still am on that journey and miss and think of them often.

This is the first time that I will be walking in their memory at the OUR HOUSE annual  Run For Hope on Sunday, April 29th. I will be wearing a t-shirt with their picture on it to honor their memory.

If you are in town, please join us for this day which will be wonderful, filled with love, plenty of food, and to top it off, will have the coolest music in town spun by my son, Michael, aka, D.J. Mike G., who will be running in memory of his grandparents. Michael is also an Associate Board member of OUR HOUSE.

Please help me reach my goal by donating to my page. I sooooo appreciate all your support.

Love,

Donna
