1. Tell us about your business/non profit and how it benefits local families?
We help to make the special events in a person’s life truly memorable
2. Where is it located?
East Sandwich, MA
3. What is your favorite thing about our community?
We love the pride so many of us share in the place where we live. We year-round residents choose to be here because we love this island, and we deeply appreciate the beautiful aspects of our community.
4. How else do you get involved with the community?
We have been active in supporting Special Olympics Cape Cod, PanMass, Cape Abilities and National MS Society
5. What do you think are the biggest challenges facing parents in our community?
The ability for us to provide adequate employment and housing opportunities for our children once they graduate high school or college is an essential shortcoming the Cape needs to overcome.
6. What is your favorite memory or story over the years involving you and your business
The very first project we installed was at a local children’s boutique. We set up the backdrop then waited inconspicuously to try and catch a reaction from a passer-by. The first child to see the rainbow colored wall was a little girl, perhaps 3 or 4. She spotted the wall, gasped, held her cheeks with her hands, and ran towards the colorful streamers at full speed! Her excitement told us we were on the right track- and we’ve been making smiles ever since.
7. What advice would you give parents and caregivers in our community?
Be realistic about the opportunities our children have ahead of them, and support what’s best for them, rather than what we may want for them. “Follow the Child”- Maria Montessori
8. Do you have any specials, events, or anything else taking place this upcoming year that our parents should know about?
Our official Launch Party is in the spring! Until then- we can’t wait to continue elevating events all over Cape Cod!

About Cape Cod Moms
Cape Cod Moms was founded in 2010 as a free resource, a place to network and collaborate for moms and parents on Cape Cod. Our blog is designed to help Cape Cod Moms connect with other moms, parents, and caregivers to empower the community with knowledge and support. Today much of our culture focuses on celebrity perfection, which fosters a desire in women and caregivers to do everything right. This is an impossible achievement for anyone and leaves women feeling overworked as the try to strive for a standard only achieved in the media. Cape Cod Moms is a supportive safe-haven for moms to know they aren't alone in the obstacles they face every day; other moms and caregivers struggle to get it all done too!

The best way to describe our summer family camp day is a time for families all coping with the loss of a loved one to be together and learn new healthy ways to help us cope productively. It is a time in which nobody has to get up and speak about their loved one or how they are feeling etc. It is time to be together for a cause to know and believe it is okay to be someone who is grieving and to know you are not alone.
We will all be a part of different activities throughout the day together at Camp Lyndon. Zumba, Drumming, swimming, mindfulness and snacks and lunch will be provided.
Cant join us for our camp day? Check out our Play Therapy and Equine Therapy events this month!
Good Grief mission: 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.
Our mission is to promote positive change to how we as a society respond to grief by providing community engagement opportunities, sharing information and educational workshops that will provide our community with ways to help children and families cope with death.
