Many people ask me (including men) what to put in a care package for a dad that has lost a child. There are many ideas for moms, but not so much for dads. Because I never really knew how to answer that question, I asked the grieving dads that follow me on Facebook what they would like to see in a care package and many of them responded with “wristband”. As a result of that response, I created the wristband with the words “Grieving Dads – Love is Forever”. Below is a sample photo of what the band looks like. If you are interested in purchasing this wristband, please click here to be directed to Amazon.com to place an order. You can also order a copy of my book and the wristband will be included (at no additional cost) in the order.
If you are a registered not for profit organization (503c) that offers care packages to bereaved parents, I would be more than happy to team with your organization to donate these wristbands in order to provide something for the dads. Please email me if you are interested in teaming.
Let me know what you think of them. I’ve been wearing mine since they came in last week and it helps me remember to be kind to myself in times where a beat myself up for not being the guy I was before losing my children. It also lets others know of the pain I carry even during the times where I am smiling on the outside.
