Dealing with the loss of a family or friend is never easy. One of the most difficult parts of any death is planning the memorial and burial. Creating an elaborate event is the last thing most people want to do in the days following the death of a loved one, but unfortunately, it’s something that must be done.
In 2012, The National Funeral Directors Association reported that the national median cost of a funeral was $7,045. It a vault is included, something that is typically required by a cemetery, the median cost $8,343. Few people are lucky enough to have this large sum at their quick disposal, which means that many families will have to dip into their savings accounts or take out loans to cover these expenses.
When a loved one dies, grieving family members and friends are often under great emotional distress. We’ve all “been there”, knowing that someone needs our help, but we just aren’t sure how to step in and help. By starting a Move Your Mountain online fundraising campaign, friends and family can help you raise money to help cover these expenses. This also provides a place for your network to share kind words and memories about the deceased.
A Move Your Mountain fundraiser gives the community an opportunity to stay connected while easing to burden of the grieving family.
