Before I die, I want to…

May 14, 2021

Demystifying Death week is an awareness campaign run by Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, designed as a way to help people have conversations about death and dying more openly. As a part of this campaign we wanted to help get people talking, so this week we asked; “what do you want to do before you die?”

Our ‘Before I Die’ wall

Thank you to everyone who got involved this year, and shared their thoughts. This past year has made a lot of us reflect on the things that are truly important, and all those small moments that make up a life that we have missed, and we hope that this will act as a prompt to keep the conversations going. We encourage everyone to have a chat with those you love about the important things you want to make more time for, or that you will appreciate all the more in the coming months.
