It's Dying to Know Day!
60% of Australians think we should talk about death more, so why do we find it so hard?
Often the most difficult thing about death and grief is the awkwardness. People don’t know what to say, or what to do, so often they do nothing. What if we all knew how to respond to loss when our family and friends needed us?
Dying to Know Day is changing the conversation.
2017 is the 5th annual Dying to Know Day.
This year 150 events across Australia, New Zealand, and USA are building death literacy by sparking conversations and supporting people to plan well for the end of their lives.
D2KDay is all about awesome conversation AND taking action.
