I am so happy to annouce that I am starting a special project. The past 8.5 months have been absolute hell. Thanks to the love and support of my family, friends and online community, I am starting to feel alive again. The journey has been long and dark, but I finally see a future. It is a different future than I ever imagined but it is a future that I am starting to get excited about.
I have been racking my brain, trying to think of “what next” in my grieving process. I know I want to give back but how can I do that? How can I use what I have learned to help others in this terrible situation? Last night, while laying in bed, it all became clear to me. I believe Darin reached out to me and told me what to do.
I am starting a special fund in honour of my late husband. The money raised in this fund will help and support young widows. I want all young widows to know they are not alone. I want to help them through their tears and anger. I know what it feels like to lose your soulmate and to have your family shattered in an instant. I want to wipe away their tears, give them hope and tell them it will get better. I never thought it would get better, but it does.
I will provide more details as soon as I create the fund. If you are interested in helping me with fundraising ideas, please let me know!
