Welcome to the Everplans Blog where we cover everything from Duck Dynasty to Death Over Dinner.
MemoValley, a site whose mission is to allow people to share memories of their departed loved ones, mentioned us in a recent blog post about "preparing for death with help from the startup world." Here's what they had to say about Everplans:
For many parents, talking with children about death is a daunting task. Death is a scary topic for a lot of us, and we want to make sure that we "do a good job" when we talk to our kids about this sensitive subject. But the conversation doesn't have to be so hard. To help you talk to your kids about death, I’ve come up with a few helpful tips to make this conversation easier.
More and more, we (as a culture) are concerned with the impact that we (as individuals) have on the earth. We're trading in SUVs for hybrid cars, eating organic and locally produced foods, and turning off our air conditioning in favor of fans (or at least we're trying to). And so it's only natural that these values for how we live life would carry over into the choices we make for how we want to be in death.
Twice in one week! Everplans got another awesome press mention this week from GigaOM.com.
