Emma Peterson, a Senior at Kimberly High School, presented a check of $1010 to Because KIDS Grieve. Emma's Senior Project focused on understanding Children and Youth Grief in the Magic Valley. She met with BKG leaders to learn about groups that provided grief support. Then, she organized a fundraising event for the community to donate to programs led by Because Kids Grieve. The donations she receive will provide funds for the Summer South Idaho Camp Erin, June 7-9 at Trinity Pines Camp and Conference Center. Registration for Camp Erin is available until May 20 www.becausekidsgrieve.org

'Tis the Season for Grief-Related Social Anxiety Part of my self-care regime is reading The Onion articles whenever possible.  I don't know what it is, their headlines just speak to my personal sense of neuroticism and social awkwardness. Some may have laughed at the above headline (I certainly did), but for those who've recently experienced the...

Hi BKG Friends. I’ve been on a week’s vacation and need to get a message out that I sent to volunteers. BKG is receiving a nice donation from a Golf tournament by the Lynch Foundation. It’s at the River’s Edge golf club in Burley on Friday July 14. We need about 4 people to volunteer time on Friday morning. We will finish in midday. Respond to this post and I will send information. This donation will benefit our programs for 23-24.

Journeying with mourning children & teens.

Because Kids Grieve has day camps and after school events that bring grieving children and their mentors together. We also hold an overnight camp in the beautiful Southern Idaho hills. Kids that would not communicate or participate in group sessions end up as part of the group, smiling and opening up. What happens affects their lives for the good in contrast to the undesirable lasting effects of ignoring the grief crisis.
