When a loved one in your family passes on, the first concern is taking care of their needs so you can ensure that they are in good hands. If you’ve decided to go with Dallas cremation, you have a lot of other options on the table once the cremation process is complete. You can put off services for as long as you’d like since there is no timeline on things after cremation is done. If you’d really like to highlight the charitable elements of your loved one’s personality through a celebration of life, there are plenty of choices to consider. Here are a few:
Organize A Day At The Charity
If there was a certain charity your loved one held near and dear, like a local homeless shelter or soup kitchen, organize a day for your family you serve and volunteer there in your loved one’s memory. After the event, you can have a meal of your own to talk about memories. You may run into people your loved one served with who will also share memories and thank you for your loved one’s service over the years.
Pool A Donation
Whether your loved one donated funds to one charity or many, you don’t want those charities to go unnoticed once your loved one passed away. They were important to your loved one or they wouldn’t have been donating themselves. When someone passes on, you might get money donations in honor of that person. Pool those as well as any other resources your family wants to donate and distribute them to one or many charities in your loved one’s honor.
Have A Fundraiser
You can have a casual or elaborate fundraiser of some sort to draw attention to a cause your loved one was close to during their lifetime. This is a great way to honor their memory and put focus on a cause that they held near. The fundraiser can double as a celebration of life since you are holding it in their honor. Share memories about them, why this charity was important to them, and enjoy time with your family and friends all at once.
These are just a few ways to pay tribute to a person who had a charitable heart through a celebration of life.
