This project connects people who have lost a mother with mothers who have lost a child — of any age — to call each other on Mother's Day.
We're building a community of people who "get it." Though we all come together with different stories, some from death and some from distance, we share an understanding of loss.
By allowing people on both sides of mother child loss to show up for each other in a powerful way, we can find connection and empathy.
It is — quite literally — a different kind of Mother's Day.
"I was excited and anxious about participating in A Different Kind of Mother's Day. As it turned out, it was like talking to someone who I already knew. I connected with two people and my conversations left me with this expanded heart kind of feeling, just knowing that two strangers in different parts of the country were not strangers at all. The Mother's Day conversations were something that we all need more of; to know that we are more the same than we are different."
