Crowdfunding is a helpful tool to assist people in raising money for causes, initiatives, and personal goals. This trend has now been introduced to the funeral industry through the use of “A Helping Hand”. As the first to partner with the industry’s largest crowdfunding platform, GoFundMe, A Helping Hand offers families the opportunity to help cover the cost of a funeral and accept contributions from loved ones around the world.

Today, more and more families are concerned with being environmentally friendly and actively trying to counteract global warming. The funeral industry has responded to this by offering green burial services. A green burial does not involve the use of embalming chemicals, cement burial vaults or metal caskets that can each cause environmental impact. Instead, the body is either wrapped in a decomposable shroud, or placed in a casket made of wood or wicker. Not only is this burial option environmentally friendly, it is also cost effective.
With funeral costs continuing to rise, cremation has now become a more popular method of disposition. Because the family does not have to purchase funeral products like a casket, vault, or tombstone, the cost of a funeral is far less than a traditional burial. Not only is cremation more affordable, it provides the family with more time to plan a meaningful memorial service or celebration of life.
Celebrations of Life
As the popularity of cremation has risen, this has correlated with an increase in celebrations of life. A celebration of life is a personalized memorial event that focuses on celebrating the life of a loved one. Rather than mourning their loss, guests are encouraged to share positive stories and memories of the deceased while acknowledging a life well lived. A celebration of life is uniquely personal to the deceased and thus no two will ever be the same.
