Carrie Shak



Carrie has helped to get Grief Heroes Foundation established.

From operational leadership to editing grief books, to co-hosting fundraisers, her input has helped put our grief tools into action. 


“Mental health awareness and support in the school system is close to my heart. There was not much focus on emotional intelligence in school when I was a child. Grief and loss were taboo subjects, leaving children feeling isolated and alone. I am proud to say that today our foundation is already making an unprecedented impact on children’s lives nationally, and as we grow so will our reach to more children and families globally.”

Our History


Kali Mutty



Kali Mutty is a proud co-founder of Grief Heroes Foundation.  Kali is an experienced digital creator who has successfully created and managed brands in unique and challenging industries. 


"It feels purposeful for me to be a part of this project. Children nowadays are faced with unprecedented trauma and challenges due to the pandemic. I have worked with children in the past, and teaching them to address and work through their emotions at an early age will only benefit them as they mature. We are all living through turbulent and uncertain times, and many adults are learning that they never learned healthy coping mechanisms."
