We Mourn Together Announces Director of Donor Relations Joe Winters

 

Donor Appeal for We Mourn Together Project Charity Vision to Help People

 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, November 25, 2020

 

A charity effort launched on March 25, 2020, We Mourn Together creates space for virtual connectedness to community. “We are excited that Joe Winters has joined our project,” said Dan Baynes, COO of Frog Pond Productions, the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity established in 1999 as an educational communications network. “Joe brings professional experience and genuine enthusiasm to our pilot-phase of development. As Director of Donor Relations, Joe embodies our collective commitment to building our business to help lots of people.”

 

“We Mourn Together is specifically seeking to highlight the immediate need to recognize and designate Bedside Attendance as essential, thereby opening the doors of hospitals, CCRCs, hospice and homes to essential workers (secular and nonsecular) to go to the bedside and assume the duties of sitting vigil with ill and dying people,” said Joe Winters, who joined We Mourn Together in October. “It is time to acknowledge the desperate need for front line workers to step up to the bedside attendance of standing by and providing comfort care to the critically ill and dying.”

 

Joe goes on to say, “Bedside Attendance is essential in order to provide Comfort Care for critically Ill patients and at the end of life. Medicine and medical directives refer to “Comfort Care” and it is time now to designate as frontline essential workers those who stand by the bedside in order to comfort the ill and dying. We Mourn Together wishes to spotlight the immediate need of putting people and technology together to create space for virtual connectedness to family and friends at the end of life.”
 

We Share Together meetings were launched in April, and are held weekly on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Dan said, “We Mourn Together is seeking funding for our You Don’t Have to Be Alone Hotline, and Gather to Remember Dedicated Time to Mourn and our Virtual Memorial Vault are ways to create space for virtual connectedness to remember our lost loved ones.” Joe said, “As a project of Frog Pond Productions, all donations made to We Mourn Together are tax-deductible. We are actively seeking charitable contributions. Working together we can help many people in these challenging new times.”

Bedside Attendance

Bedside Attendance is Essential. Telecommunication connection provides patients and their loved ones the Comfort Care they need, and relieves and undburdens medical professionals. We are building a workforce of Essential Attendants and order to bring virtual visits to the ill and dying in hospitals, ICUs, hospice, retirement communities and in-home care environments. 

 

Bedside Attendance is a secular effort to use technology to connect loved ones who are critically ill and at the end of life. Technology together with a workforce of Essential Attendants  can bring loved ones and family to the bedside of the critically ill and dying.

 

We Mourn Together is Developing a Cadre of Clergy to Serve the IMMEDIATE NEED for Bedside Attendance to serve the bedside Comfort Care needs of those who are suffering alone. Our “Call to Clergy” is a call to action to the ministry, religious and lay people to go to the bedside of the sick and dying. 

Gather to Remember

 

Gather to Remember is Dedicated Time to Mourn that provides one to three-day 24/7 virtual responsiveness to the mourner, and a profile presence that allows for others (family/friends) to mourn the loss of a loved one, and help the mourner move toward healing. Gather to Remember delivers clergy and ministry (is requested) via virtual and telephonic connectedness, and provides a way for volunteers and professionals  to help and support mourners.

 

Services include: managing and arranging the meetings with attendees, moderator and tech support for meetings, photo and digital assets management, video/multimedia production and recording of event(s), and network to clergy and ministry (as needed).

 

Virtual Memorial Vault 

Virtual headstones, and memorial walls and halls will be available in the cloud. Our future holds web-based memorials and Ethernet cemeteries and mausoleums. We envision a special "Covid Eternal Flame Memorial" in remembrance to those who have passed due to the virus.

If you are in crisis or you think you may have an emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. If you're having suicidal thoughts, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area at any time (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline). If you are located outside the United States, call your local emergency line immediately.

Building a Virtual Community

~ Our Grand Vision ~

 

We Mourn Together creates space for virtual visits and connectedness to communityWe are inclusive, non-denominational and interfaith. We Mourn Together is deeply committed to inclusion, honesty, respect, kindness and equity. We have a grand vision of many ways to help people, and specifically providing essential  attendance at the end of life. We Mourn Together is primarily focused on attending to people with their end of life concerns of dying and death.

 

We Mourn Together is a global community vision and a concept applicable to all types of mourning and grief. Loss of a loved one, or loss of: a job or a business, freedom and liberty, events such as sports, concerts, festivals, expos and trade shows, weddings, graduations and significant life events, all of the many ways we gather together.

 

We Mourn Together provides a virtual platform for gathering in fellowship and connectedness to communities for support to share our feelings. We Mourn Together helps people cope with sorrow and sadness as we let go of what was. We mourn and grieve our losses together, and help support each other as we gather to remember and memorialize our dearly departed.

 

We have lost Funerals, Shivas, Second Lines, Wakes, and all ceremonies and rituals surrounding death. We can no longer meet with friends and family to process the loss of jobs, independence and so much more.

 

We are collectively grieving while, ironically, separated from each other. When we are unable to process our feelings of sadness, grief, bereavement and mourning we may bear the weight of regret. The way we grieve now will impact the trajectory of our healing for generations to come.

 

Comprehensive Vision

We Mourn Together is for all grief, mourning, bereavement, loneliness and isolation, not just the sadness, sorrow and suffering experienced while attending to the dying and the dead.
