MuchLoved Newsletter – February 2010

Your MuchLoved Newsletter
Happy New Year and welcome to MuchLoved’s first newsletter of 2010. This year we have many exciting developments planned for our service and are really looking forward to sharing them with you over the coming months.
Best wishes, Sally & Jon

This month we welcome…

“We decided to use MuchLoved because we found the site straightforward and tasteful. The benefits for us are that it is a free service, simple to set up a partnership and gives our supporters more options for in memoriam fundraising. Chloe Marchant, Legacy Officer

“Muchloved has filled a gap in our supporter care of those who already give gifts in memory of a loved one. Staff in our care homes are also looking at how it can be used to help the grieving process for staff, residents and family members when residents die.” Alison Turner, Legacy Manager

Meeting Facility Required – Can You Help?
Later on in the year MuchLoved will be hosting an annual meeting, providing our partners with an opportunity to learn more about MuchLoved, network and put faces to our names. To facilitate this we need a room in central London for a couple of hours with a capacity for 50. Does your organisation have that facility or do you know of somewhere? If so, please do get in touch.

A debate about the benefits of memorial websites
The Guardian recently ran a story asking whether online tributes and the ability to grieve more publicly is a good idea. If you missed the article you can read it here and any feedback on the issues raised is much appreciated.

Tribute Software Explained – Contribution Option
Family and friends visiting a tribute can easily contribute their own messages, pictures, stories, music and even video. The Tribute Guardian (creator) has the option to restrict the types of contribution that visitors can send in and also retains the ability to approve any contribution before it appears on their tribute site.
