CaringBridge: Free Websites For Those On Medical Journeys #ad #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for CaringBridge. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

CaringBridge: Offering free, personal websites to the sick to help them stay in touch with loved ones. #ad

During the holidays, it’s important to support and share with those in need. We all know that, but we don’t always know how. Loved ones can’t always come see those they care about in the hospital, but patients need love and support to heal. CaringBridge is helping to bridge this gap by providing free, personal websites, to help people who are on medical journeys stay connected with those that they love.

CaringBridge: How You Can Help

CaringBridge serves more than 500,000 people each day, making it easier for them to share their love, hope and compassion for their loved ones while they get better. Please consider making a contribution to CaringBridge this holiday season.

    This is so sweet and important. Being sick and away from family is always hard even harder during the holidays. When my daughter was in the hospital, she wanted her parents always. How sad to be hurting and away from loved ones. I’m glad they are being given a way to connect.

  2. We actually relied heavily upon CaringBridge last year when a friend’s family went through a very trying time. It was really helpful to have a place to get updates without calling and texting them constantly!

  3. I’ve never personally experienced us of CaringBridge, but I can imagine how incredibly helpful I would be for family and friends and those in a health crisis.

  4. What a great cause. I’m not familiar with it but I love what they’re doing.

  5. I have never heard of Caring Bridge. Thanks so much for the great info. I know many that could use it.

  6. What a fantastic cause to be aware of during the holidays.

  7. This is such a fantastic website. It would be so hard to be sick and away from your loved ones for the holidays.

  8. This is such a great cause!

  9. This is a wonderful thing! I hadn’t heard of them before, but I love what they do.

  10. This is a great thing that they provide. Helps so many people stay in touch during such hard times. I know a few personally that it’s really helped!

  11. What a great write up. Caring Bridge got me thru some of the hardest times dealing with my friend’s cancer. Thru her site, we felt the love and support of so many people.

      I am so glad to hear that Caring Bridge was able to help you and your friend in your time of need. 🙂

  12. I love the idea behind the caring bridge! It definitely helps keep all those loved ones and friends in on how a person is fairing without the stress of trying to communicate with each one personally when they need to be focused on caring for themselves.

  13. Aw, what a beautiful gift to someone in the hospital or undergoing medical treatment! Everyone deserves to be with family and friends during the holidays and it’s wonderful that someone found a way to gift that 🙂

  14. our friends used caringbridge when their jamie got sick. it was a huge help

  15. That’s great. A lot of times when someone is ill they are shunned or forgotten about. I’m sure to someone in the hospital any type of communication is appreciated. I used to go to the nursing home with a dear friend of mine to see her mother. Strangers would reach out and grab my hand. I took the time to visit with as many as possible.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      That is great that you did that. I bet they appreciated it far more than you will ever know.

  16. Sandy Cain says:

    Never heard of them before, but God bless them! especially for the elderly – it seems that everyone wants to visit sick kids (and they should!) but so often our senior population is left to languish in nursing homes.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      You are right. It’s so sad that people often never have another visitor after going to a nursing home.
