As we come up on a year of the global pandemic, many things remain restricted or canceled but KINDNESS, HOPE & LOVE remain!
For the past 7 years we have annually celebrated the Holidays with a massive local giveaway. This year in the spirit of giving and of service to our community as well as love, we will instead highlight 24 days of local non profit organizations in our region showcasing how vitally important they are!

Good Grief Cape Cod is a vital resource for the Cape Cod region. In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, Good Grief Cape Cod holds a great emphasis on and support for research that children of all ages do grieve. They provide community engagement opportunities and educational workshops to show our community different ways to help children and families cope with death and loss.
Good Grief Cape Cod was founded by local parent, Amy Wyman, a music therapist with a duel degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Life from Wheelock as well as a Masters in Expressive Art Therapies with a specialization in Music Therapy from Lesley University. Her dedication to ensuring that our most vulnerable population's emotional and mental health needs are met is absolutely critical especially now more than ever. Amy's passion of always looking for ways to serve her community and make the world a better place are to be admired.
The organization is an initiative under the umbrella of Falmouth Together We Can, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Good Grief Cape Cod also works in partnership with several local practitioners and organizations which include: Coalition for Children, Sandwich Partnership for Families, Cape Cod Family Resource Center, Bourne for Children, DCF, Cape Cod Veterans Outreach Center, and Hope Health.
Two summers ago Good Grief Cape Cod held an all day retreat for children and families at Camp Lyndon. The day was beautifully executed with dance therapy, art therapy, music therapy and so much more! The joy that was readily apparent on our local children's faces, who have had the unthinkable happen thru the loss of a parent or loved one, was the greatest gift to witness that day. The care that Good Grief took in ensuring a calming and safe place to share their stories and grief was amazing.
For many years now we have partnered with Amy Wyman and Good Grief Cape Cod to assist with their outreach and to help families find the resources they need during difficult periods of their lives. We have had Amy as a guest speaker at our annual Parent Resource Fair for several year as well as on The Parent Pod to discuss Tough Topics which can be viewed by clicking those links. The information she has shared in helping educate our parents and caregivers on how to talk to our kids about gried is vital.
Thank you to Good Grief Cape Cod and to Amy who works tirelessly to help our families in their critical time of need. Please take a minute and check out their updated website and donate to their organization if you can.
