Death and Dying, let’s talk about it
Dying To Know Day (8 August) is an annual day of action dedicated to activating conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement.
Very Special Kids is using this day as an opportunity to open up the discussion of how we, as a society of many cultures, faiths and beliefs talk about the inevitable, death.
We are an organisation that sadly witnesses the untimely death of children, which exposes us to the realities in life and to the often taboo topic of death. It is a difficult topic, no doubt about it, but the fact that it is difficult is the very reason we need to talk about it. We’ve launched our own video in the hope it will encourage society to talk openy about death, dying and grief, which is something that will inevitably affect us all.
If you’ve lost a loved one, we’d love to hear your story, or if you’ve got a question you’d like our team to answer, please use the form below to get in touch.
