Give Back / Open Call

As part of our Give Back Project, we are pleased to introduce our third volunteer opening. This one is special as it is an Open Call!

This is a golden opportunity for anyone wanting to Give Back. Basically you call the shots. Submit your original ideas and let us share your work here. This could be a project or organization you started in honor of your children, stories or articles you have written, artwork you have created, songs or videos you recorded, pictures you have taken — literally anything!

If you are interested in sharing your ideas here please with “Open Call Submission” in the subject line. There are no deadlines for this volunteer position, however we would like to begin sharing your ideas by the beginning of June.


We have one more announcement left! Stay tuned for more.

Give Back / New Pen-Pals

As part of our Give Back Project, we are pleased to introduce our second volunteer opening: New Pen-Pals.

Our Pen-Pal Program is the most important aspect of what we do for the babyloss community. It takes a lot of strength and courage for families to reach out to us for help. It takes even more strength and courage to be a Pen-Pal. Think you’re ready for it?

While we all share the same ending — our lives, histories, and stories are uniquely different. We are looking to expand our Pen-Pal Database with families dealing with, but not limited to:

SIDS, Incompetent Cervix, Preterm Birth, NICU Families, Blighted Ovum, Father’s of Pregnancy and Infant Loss, Infertility Work-Ups and Families TTC after Loss.

Being a Pen-Pal is a very rewarding way to give back. Not only will you be helping others, you will be continuously sharing the story of your children.

For more information, or to sign up as a Grieve Out Loud Pen-Pal please send a message with “New Pen-Pal” in the subject line. Make sure to explain the type of loss you would like to represent in your e-mail. Please have your request in by Tuesday, May, 31st.


Still not your cup of tea? Still have more to announce so hang tight!

Give Back / Content Developer

As part of our Give Back Project, we are pleased to introduce our first volunteer opening: Creative Content Developers.

We are looking to add some folks to help us with creative content development and writing in places such as our Facebook Page, Group Chat Session Topics, and content.

What is going on in our community that we are not addressing? What do families want to talk about? What do families want to read about? By volunteering you would know some of these answers. Your content would help them feel less alone and more connected to the group.

This is your chance to share all your creative stories, ideas and projects with us! You could be writing the words you are reading right now.

For more information, or to sign up as a Grieve Out Loud Content Developer please send a message with “Content Developer” in the subject line. Please have your request in by Tuesday, May 31st.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you!


Not your cup of tea? Don’t worry we have three more volunteer positions that will be announced over the weekend. Stay tuned for those!

Give Back Project

Every day we strive to help families find their way back to life after loss. It’s not always easy, or pretty but in the end we build beautiful relationships with people from all over the world. I recently had an idea that some of you might be interested in.

I am pleased to announce our Give Back Project.

At some point in our journey, we have the urge to give back. Some people will participate in remembrance walks, donate money or items to their favorite charities, knit blankets and hats for hospitals or even create their own organizations. Some people are still trying to figure out what they want to do in honor of their children. This might just be your calling!

We are expanding in big ways here and are very excited to share these opportunities with you. We will be looking for new team members, content developers and other volunteers who are ready to help us give back to the community. We will begin posting our openings here and on our Facebook page. If you feel you have the time and energy to fill the openings please
