BENEFITING: My Grief Angels Inc

THE STORY:

1. The URGENCY: "America's 76 Million Baby Boomers are loosing 4,900 of their parents each day" "3.5% of Children Younger than 18 will lose their mother or father, according to the social security administration" "At least 245 million Women around the world have been widowed, and more than 115 million of them live in devastating poverty" "Each year, about 2.5 million die nationwide. Every death leaves behind an average of 4 or 5 GRIEVING survivors" 2. WHY "GUTS - A GRIEF Urban TECH Multilingual Camp for ALL Ages" While we live in an increasingly interconnected technology-enabled world, and the number of people grieving in poor urban centers around the world is booming - there is a major disconnect in the availability of technology-enabled resources and support available to people grieving; specially low income populations. 3. TECH-enabled Pre & Post GRIEF Camp Local Support: My Grief Angels is a Platinum level GuideStar non-profit looking to leverage existing technologies, including: - Our top-rated free proximity-based mobile app "Grief Support Network"; - Our free online grief education course (The Grief MOOC: Grief & How it Can Kill Us") and - New video-gaming technologies to launch a grief camp with pre and post grief support connectedness and support in urban low income areas. 4. POPULATIONS BEING SERVED: While there are many grief camps throughout the US, there are few of these: - Taking place where large grieving populations live, in the poor urban centers; - Serving ALL ages (Seniors, Baby Boomers, 30s, 20s, children, etc); - Serving the needs of Disabled grieving populations/famlies; - Serving Non-English speaking grieving populations (ie, Spanish, etc) - Integrating latest technologies to enable pre and post follow-up and creation of local grief support communities among the camp's participants 5. FUNDING is for Initial English & Spanish Language Pilot Test: The first camp is targeted within the metropolitan Houston area, with follow-up camps targeted for New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and other major cities. After initial roll-out in USA's largest 10 cities, we look to launch in key targeted international urban centers with largest grieving populations. Funding permitting, we hope to host 100 individuals at the first camp in two sections divided by language: English & Spanish. 6. WHEN: 2017 Houston Pilot Test 2018 USA National Roll-out (Top 5 Largest Cities) NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia 2019 USA National Roll-out (6-10 Largest Cities): Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Jose 2020 USA National Camps & International Pilot Test 7. PILOT EVALUATION: In addition to the active participation in the camp by grieving individuals, families, local community/organizations/church support, critical to our performance evaluation of these camps will be our ability to continue engaging the camp's participants online after the camp. Engagement that will include online and locally based grief support communities of camp participant and their support/commitment to help others in their community grieving.
