Show that YOU KARE TOO! We are raising money to benefit KAREfarm(Kate And Averys Retreat Experience), and any donation will help make an impact. We can't think of any other way to demonstrate our deep thankfulness to others that took their time, treasures, talents, and patience to build into our lives so we began to served others that are bereaved with community and connection.
This year has been marked with how we give, take, and treat each other. From cancellations and then rescheduling, and the obstacles…….. Moving from a vision to reality has been nothing short of a call from a higher power and a miracle reinforcing that this is good work and the right work. On paper, a KAREfarm retreat was not going to happen, not in 2020. When each obstacle was met with an answer, a solution, it continued to spur us on. I am humbled by the selflessness given through volunteerism and donations and together WE MADE THIS HAPPEN! BUT WE HAVE MORE TO DO in 2021! Although KAREfarm was initially founded under the need to serve others feeling the isolation and grief of child loss, it has only been through finding community in others and making connections that we have listened to and learned that the need is so much greater than we ever imagined.
Featured in this video, Jess is one of the first attendees of a retreat to support grieving mothers. We are so blessed that she and her wife, Sarah, have been able to engage in supporting others in their journey after of the loss of their son, Eli, to cancer at 4 years old. Creating each tent in memory and recognition of our children has been healing, as we share just a piece of who they were while we were blessed to have them with us. It is so important for us to share the story of our loved one, in a way that honors who they were, and allow their memory to endure.
OUR ASK for this Giving Tuesday, that you help us to get a jump on our fundraising to invest in building 3 additional Glamps. This includes platforms, canvas 3 season tents, and bedding, which would DOUBLE our capacity from 8 to 16 people per retreat! Our cost for Glamp area includes a platform and a 3 season canvas tent ($4500) and bedding for each tent is $450.
Anything above and beyond our fundraising goal will be used to support additional guests for the upcoming year.
The cost for KAREfarm to support attendance at no cost to each guest is $190.00( this includes all meals, journals, workshop materials which meet Covid compliance).
Thank you in advance for your contribution, Family and friends often struggle to support a loved one that seems unreachable through grief and loss, THIS is one way. If at this time, you are not able to give monetarily, OUR ask is that you please pass along our information to anyone that you know is grieving and could benefit from bereavement support. We would love for you to forward information as well to anyone that you think could benefit from a grief retreat with workshops from our grief coaches.
