CaringBridge: Connecting Family and Friends *GIVEAWAY* (Rafflecopter)

CaringBridge is an organization dedicated to helping families connect with family and friends when they need it the most. At CaringBridge you can set up a FREE, personal, and private journal to record  your health record. In the event of a life changing  situation, CaringBridge can help you share updates, photos, and get encouragement from your family and friends.  Many families use CaringBridge for therapeutic reasons – to help them vent their feelings and frustrations with their fight and/or loss. There are pages from families going through things like:

  • Cancer treatment
  • Premature births
  • Military Deployment
  • Hospitalization
  • Loss of a child/spouse
  • Adoption
  • Traumatic Injuries

CaringBridge is easy to set up and easy to customize!  They have tons of great designs to personalize your page, including awareness ribbons. You can add pictures and  shout outs to friends to truly make this page special to your family.

When my daughter was born at just 26 weeks, I needed my family and friends there for support, but t it was important that my time was spent with her and not updating everyone with 1000 phone calls. I emotionally could not handle repeating the same thing over and over and over.  I easily set up our personal page and was able to update my friends and family with all the setbacks and all the accomplishments we were making. I received encouragement, prayers, and support in the times I needed it most.

While I no longer use my page for updates, I frequent it sometimes to look back over my journal and photo gallery that I added to often during our 12 week NICU stay.  I can check back over the journal to see important dates of events/procedures, and also to see the amazing  journey she has made to get to where she is now. I am so thankful that I had CaringBridge in my time of need, and now.

CaringBridge now offers a mobile app to make it easier to update your journal or visit a family member’s page. I encourage you to set up a page if you are in need, or share this great free service with someone who can use it – be a support in someone’s time of need.

CaringBridge is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to keep helping families around the world. You can donate online, or stop by the CaringBridge store where all net proceeds go to CaringBridge and their efforts to make a difference in the lives of families.

    I think this is a nice idea. My sister just spent a month and a half in the hospital. We have a large family and I knew she didn’t want to be bombarded with visits and calls.
