What is MuchLoved.com?
MuchLoved.com is a free online resource that allows grieving families to create an online tribute garden in memory of their loved ones. Your tribute garden can help you express, keep and display valuable personal memories and thoughts about your loved one using words, pictures, music and video. Family and friends can send their thoughts and contribute by adding their own photos or special stories.
How will a tribute garden help others?
When you establish a tribute garden, you have the opportunity to select Advocate Hospice as your chosen charity for memorial donations. Every donation given through the tribute garden comes directly to Advocate Hospice to help us continue our vital work. For more information on how you can support Advocate Hospice, contact Rita Kopjo at 847.384.3404 or e-mail Rita.Kopjo@advocatehealth.com.
How do I set up a tribute garden for my loved one?
It is very easy to set up a memorial site--simply click the "Create a Tribute" link on the MuchLoved.com website and follow the prompts. Your tribute site is not only free to set up with absolutely no obligation on your part but will also be hosted free of charge for 10 years.
When you first set up your website, you will be asked whether you wish to share your details with Advocate Hospice. By agreeing to this, we will be able to contact you to say thank you and also to keep in touch. It will also enable us to see how many supporters have created an online tribute fund and to receive feedback on the initiative and suggestions for the future.
What about security?
You can keep access to your tribute totally private to just you and selected family and friends, or you can choose to allow public access. The privacy of your site is completely handed over to you.
