Does it really make difference? Winston Churchill said... "you make a living by what you get and you make a life by what you give".
Giving to Home Hospice Association has become the centre of my life. And just on Sunday someone asked me if it has been / if it is worth it? The only answer I could give was; how can I not? How can I stand by every day and know others are suffering because of something that is completely out of our control?
None of us want to die. No one looks forward to sitting in the doctor's office hearing the words "it is time to put your affairs in order" and no one wants to suffer the loss of their loved one.
But... it is a fact of life. 100% of us are going to lose someone we love and 100% of us are going to die. I don't want to suffer. I don't want my loved ones to suffer. Quite frankly I don't want anyone to suffer. Especially when I can do something about it!
I can give a little and you can give a little and together we can offer 100% of each other compassionate care at the end of our life or the lives of someone we love.
This is not the place in my message where I am going to ask whether or not you would forgo one coffee a day to give $2.00 to end someone's suffering. I am simply going to ask what on this #GivingTuesday would this love, care and support mean to you if you needed the peace and comfort a home death can bring.
If given the choice would you not agree you would rather be able to surround your loved one with their things, their photographs, their music in their home? Today we are giving you the choice. Giving to Home Hospice Association today on #GivingTuesday means when you need us we WILL be there!
