Grief & Empathy Tools
We have heard over and over from the people we serve that many of their friends and loved ones just disappeared. They let fear stand in their way of showing up. They didn't know what to say or what to do, so they didn't do anything… which leaves the people they care about feeling alone and abandoned.
When connecting with people in the greater community at events, we heard over and over again from individuals that they were scared to say the wrong thing or intrude on personal space. They were afraid to ask questions and didn't want to offend anyone. They were desperate for a way to help and wanted show their love, but genuinely didn't know how to be present for the person they loved. We can assure you, if that's you, you're not alone.
After hearing both sides, knowing that each person deeply longed for connection, we knew we had to do something to help bridge the gap.
The resources you see below are just the beginning of Love Not Lost grief and empathy tools that are designed to empower and equip you to engage with the people you love. These are not meant to "fix" any problem, but instead, provide a way for you to be a positive presence and loving support as you show up for the people you care about and let them know they're not alone.
"Moore Love" Cards
We have two cards in the "Moore Love" series inspired by Rhonda Moore. You can request a beautiful empathy card of your choice, or you can request both, to hand-deliver or drop in the mail to someone you care about during a hard time.
We have a 4x6 folded card that is blank inside as well as a 5x7 flat card if you just want to sign and send it. Please let us know the design/size you want and we’ll get them in the mail to you right away.
Gift A Session Certificate
This 9x12 certificate is a beautiful way to tell a friend or family member facing a terminal diagnosis about Love Not Lost, while also showing up for them in a big way. This allows you to "Gift A Session" to someone who is facing a terminal diagnosis.
The certificate gifts a free portrait session and beautiful photo album, and allows the family to accept it immediately or set it aside until they are ready to contact us.
Love Better Support Card
This 5x7 post card is a great way to find out how you can help someone. When you get that text that a friend's biopsy is bad, or a post that someone's family member just died, your heart sinks. You feel awful. But you have no idea what to say, let alone do...
We've created this support card with a list on the back for your friend to check off the ways you can help. This is about showing up, overcoming fear, and loving them well. If you’re interested in a digital version that you can use right away delivered to their inbox, please visit our new website dedicated to loving people better in tangible ways.
