1 in 5 children will experience the death of someone close to them by age18.
Many suffer from loneliness and
feelings of isolation.
We provide age-appropriate self-help grief books to children and teenagers that help them to find a way out of their labyrinth of confusion and grief.
CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN
Interview with Andy Binau who spearheaded the first donation project to the Children of Oklahoma City.
"I am one of the co-authors of ICAN, a workbook for grieving teenagers. Working on the book is a way for me to help others suffering and feel lost in "grief land." More about ICAN.
My name is Isabella and I lost my mom, in May of 2019 towards the end of my freshman year of high school. She had battled cancer for almost ten years and was the light of my life.
When COVID-19 cast its shadow over the United States, Grief Heroes Foundation shipped Grief Donations to 18 inner-city schools in Oklahoma City.
In coordination with teachers and school counselors (most of whom had little or no budgetary resources for traumatized students), we quickly distributed our grief-healing stories/workbooks produced in multiple languages.
Our donations have helped children begin to understand their grief and confusion by offering them a context and language to process their difficult emotions.
One out of every 20 children aged fifteen and younger will suffer the loss of one or both parents.
