Ten Ways You Can Help a Family During the Holidays After a Child Dies
Date:12/9/2008

) Make a donation in memory of the child to a non-profit organization that has special meaning to the family.
7) Offer to assist with holiday shopping.
8) Make the family aware of special remembrance services where they might want to participate such as The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting the second Sunday in December.
9) Even if several years have passed since the child died, send the family a card and mention the child by name. If you have it in your possession, enclose a picture or videotape of the child the family may not have seen or possess. This will mean more to the family than you can possibly imagine.
10) Don't try to talk the family into doing something they simply don't want to do. Be there with understanding and compassion.

With your help, the holidays may be a little gentler for the family grieving the death of a child.

The Compassionate Friends has more than 600 chapters in the United States with locations in all 50 states plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. At least 30 countries around the world have a Compassionate Friends presence. The organization annually sponsors The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting the second Sunday in December and more than 500 services open to the public blanket the country.

For more information on helping bereaved families or on the Worldwide Candle Lighting, visit www.compassionatefriends.org or call toll-free 877-969-0010.
