Not Your Normal Sympathy Card
This is a simple activity that we can do to show up for our grieving friends. Inspired by my own gifts growing up when I was too poor to buy presents for family and friends, instead I made them coupons which were exchangable for services to be performed at a later date.
5 Friendship Support Coupons
These are coupons that you will give to your friend that they will use when they need. It's much better to offer something specific for our friends when they're grieving than by saying something like, "Let me know if there's anything I can do".
Be specific and offer something that you are willing to do!
For example, you could say something like:
- "I'll show up Friday night with a pizza and a bottle of wine and we'll just stay in." or
- "Good for 3 hours of yard work one Sunday morning."
