GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)-
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
In the past, i understand has observed International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day – a day in which survivors of suicide loss come together to find connection, understanding and hope through their shared experience. An annual event that brings these loved ones together is the Grand Rapids Jaycee Santa Parade. The parade has been cancelled this year, however, you will still see i Understand staff and supporters out and about (following COVID guidelines) on a trolley, Saturday, November 21st.
i Understand will be honoring loved ones by visiting area organizations and making donations of items to support those experiencing homelessness, along with children at local hospitals, and families who are struggling to put gifts under the tree this holiday. i Understand supporters have found that helping others can in-turn help in their own grieving process. You can help join in the effort to get 100 toys donated to TOYS for TOTS in one hour. For more information visit the ‘i Understand love heals’ Facebook page.
