BENEFITING: Family Lives On Foundation
ORGANIZER: Family Lives On Foundation
Almost a year ago I lost my wife Megan Cosgrove while she was giving birth to my son Declan. The support we received from family, friends, co-workers and even complete strangers has been endless. We have seen the power of sharing on social media first hand numerous times. I now know that I have to do better and continue to pay it forward with Declan to teach him how important it is to give back.
We will be working with Family Lives On Foundation going forward. We never had a chance to establish our own traditions as a family. I can't imagine how difficult it is for families who did have traditions and can't continue them anymore. Family Lives on steps in and helps these families continue the traditions. Any donation given can help families continue these traditions and help take families off the wait list. Thank you in advance!

Over 2 million children will be celebrating the holidays without a mom or dad this year. With your donation, Tradition Packages will be prepared and sent throughout the country helping children, teens, and their families continue healing family traditions. Cookies will be baked, trees will be trimmed, candles will be lit and dreidels will be spun.
At this time of year when you join with family and friends to continue your own traditions, please consider supporting a family tradition for a child or teen who has suffered the death of a parent.
The Tradition Program provides virtual, ongoing, therapeutic support, meeting children and teens where they are, creating a safe haven for grief, communication, and celebration.
When making your plans this season, please consider a holiday gift to a grieving child.
What is your family tradition?
