National personalities to share personal sorrows, offer hope during challenging times
PRLog - March 16, 2015 - INDIANAPOLIS -- Grievers around the nation will converge in Indianapolis from April 16 - 18, 2015, for the first National Grief & Hope Convention, at the JW Marriott Grand Ballroom. But some are waiting for a random act of kindness from strangers to help them make the trip.
"We've received over a dozen hardship applications from individuals who are really struggling with their loss. They are hopeful of coming to Indianapolis but simply don't have the resources. Since losing their loved one, some have lost their jobs, their cars, and even their homes,” states executive director Lynda Cheldelin Fell.
Each applicant has submitted an explanation outlining the financial barrier that prevents them from paying their own way, including proof of income. The sponsorship covers every aspect of the applicant's attendance at the convention including airfare, taxi, lodging, meals, and full convention registration.
Fifteen nationally known personalities ranging from historical icons to Fortune 500 leaders to award winning entertainers will speak on personal sorrow, lead workshops, answer questions from the audience, and personally greet the public with the goal of offering healing and hope during challenging times.
Open to the public, tickets are $35 per session and available at www.griefconvention.com.
For information on sponsoring an applicant, click on the Sponsor tab of the convention website, or contact executive director Lynda Cheldelin Fell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
