Once a recent visit to a local cemetary, I was struck by the amount of gravesites that didn't have headstones.
When I inquired at the office about this, they informed me that there were SO many families that just couldn't afford them. Sometimes it would just take a few weeks for them to come up with the money to order them...but, many times...it would be months if not years...and often then, forgot about.
That's when I attended a grief counseling group and asked a few of the participants if they'd be interested in my mission to help provide headstones for those families that couldn't afford them.
The Giving Group was formed. Last year alone, we were able to provide over 10 headstones...with a goal this year to provide at least 20.
The average headstone marker is about $300.
With your help, we can reach this goal and maybe surpass it.
