We Are Supporting Grieving Children in Oklahoma City
Death and grief are hard for all of us, but for a child losing
a loved one, it is life-altering.
We are donating 1200 Grief Hero Packages to 18 inner-city schools.
In conjunction with school counselors and teachers,
we provide self-help grief resources to the families in need.
Support our fundraiser:
"In a school where trauma is abundant and teachers and counselors are doing everything they can to help, the hope these donations bring can't be overstated. This will impact hundreds of students and families in Oklahoma City and I am so excited to see the changes born of it"

A Grief Heroes Donation Package Includes:
- 1 Super Dog Zam grief book
- 1 pack of colored pencils
- 1 drawstring backpack
- 1 informational flyer for adults
Super Dog Zam shares his heartfelt story of loss and grief. Through his story, Zam provides support to children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
These developmentally tailored books gives children a forum to explore and express
Zam and his friends help to facilitate meaningful conversation between children and caregivers, who can foster the healing process.

As an educator, I know that children express themselves differently.
The Super Dog Zam Grief Healing Series is a wonderful way to open the doors of communication with a child about the very difficult subjects of grief and death.
The series provides a wonderful tool toward understanding and most importantly healing. The workbooks can be used individually or in a group setting. Children relate to the characters and are able to discuss their feelings, knowing that they are not alone.
