Supporting families through the unexpected loss of a child

Give Grief a Voice Project

In speaking with families who have lost young children, we realized how important it is to listen to their story and to assure parents that their little one will be remembered always. Even at various stages of grieving the loss of a child, it can be very difficult to articulate the memories and things that made your child special. The emotional support of providing an outlet and a sense of permanence to the story of who their child was and the process of grieving is immense and powerful.

With these things in mind, we launched a special project in 2019, Give Grief a Voice. We engage professional writers and artists to capture stories of the child and present the family with a unique piece of art as a gift.

About Buzzy's

In the wake of unexpectedly losing our amazing boy in 2016, we have been blessed beyond words with both financial and emotional support. Even with prudent planning, there is no way we could have fully prepared for such a loss.

Our mission is simple: to help other parents in our position receive that same level of support. Each year we have been able to consistently award financial gifts to grieving families and provide emotional support to countless others.
