We are so humbled by the number of people who have shared their stories with us. This year, we wanted to share some of those stories with you.
Each of these women shares one thing in common: when life seemed as if it would never hold joy again, they found hope and strength. They found comfort and support through Healing Hugs. They made the decision to keep living.
When someone we love leaves this earth, the pain is unbearable. People try to help, but sometimes they don’t know what to do or say. But Healing Hugs Hugs ® does. That’s how we help.
Simple acts of love and kindness—the right words at the right time… that’s why Healing Hugs ® matters.
One person at a time, with a Healing Hug and a range of support, we help people find the strength to make it through another day and inspire them to find a better, brighter tomorrow.
With over 1.8 million Facebook followers, Healing Hugs helps hundreds of thousands of people each year. We have big plans to grow and offer more online and community-based resources to help people in despair—we can barely keep pace with the demand for more of our support.
I have seen firsthand the relief and joy that moms like Sherri Ann and Terri feel when someone knows what to say and comforts them in just the right way— because I have been there myself. I lost my little girl, Janna, in a car accident when she was just 9 years old. I remember the pain and isolation I felt, and I wanted to help others to feel less alone. That’ s why I started Healing Hugs.
Every day we receive dozens of stories like the ones I’ve shared with you today, thanking us for support and inspiration, and asking us to do even more. When something works this well, it deserves to continue and grow.
I hope you will join me in supporting Healing Hugs by making a gift today so that moms like Sherri Ann and Terri, and grandmothers like AnnMarie can find support— and even a little happiness— in the toughest moments in life.
Please support Healing Hugs with your donation of $50, $100, $250, or more this holiday. Any amount helps us to offer even more hope and hugs to those in need.
Thank you so much. I deeply appreciate your financial support.
P.S. Help people find joy once again! Your gift of $50, $100, $250, or more helps in so many ways. Please give a Healing Hug and change lives with your support today!
The video below was created as a memorial to Janna to celebrate July 9, 1997, the day got her wings. I love and miss her very much, and was very touched by the beautiful video put together in tribute by one of my dear fans.
We are a community joined together to share our grief, find comfort, and embrace our joy and happiness. Please join us.
