Kids’ Grief Charity Brings the Magic With New Online Hub
Feel the Magic, an Australian not-for-profit charity dedicated to supporting grieving children and their families, has announced an expansion of their online offering with a new Grief Support Hub.
The Grief Support Hub is designed to assist families through all aspects of their experience and throughout ther grief and journeys, including resources on dealing with the news of a terminal diagnosis, how to speak to a child after an immediate loss, getting through the first 12 months and more.
Founder and CEO James Thomas says Feel the Magic’s vision is to create a world where children who are experiencing grief are supported to reach their full potential.
“It is not easy parenting children of different ages, and they can sometimes require very different approaches to the same emotions, so where appropriate we have broken this information down into age appropriate sections to help you know what questions might arise, what language to use and what feelings might be most common at the time,” he says.
The new portal will offer support to families from the onset of their grief journey and beyond.
Thomas says the new portal, developed by Feel the Magic’s Clinical Psychologist, delivers activities that allow for the whole family to take part and heal as one.
“The Grief Support Hub offers a selection of books, movies and other resources that accommodate the needs of grieving families at different stages of their experience.
“We are pleased the new portal will offer support to families from the onset of their grief journey and beyond,” Thomas says.
Feel the Magic is funded entirely by donations and they are seeking support to help reach as many children as possible. Donations can be made via feelthemagic.org.au. All donations $2 and over are tax deductible.
