A Day of Hope and Healing

Community Program

  • A Day of Hope and Healing
  • Many times we experience grief as part of a member of a community, though a loss has not been personal to us.  Maybe your organization or workplace has lost a member of its team, or your town is suffering the loss of a cornerstone member of your community.  We offer support to groups and whole communities through our Day of Hope and Healing, along with other programs we can tailor to the needs of the community.  Activities such as building love walls, story time, and a balloon release help community members heal after tragedy and promote healing for losses that may not fit within our traditional support groups and camps.

    For more information or to schedule a Day of Hope and Healing at your school or organization, contact us at 515-223-4847 or info@amandathepanda.org.


    When they first came most kids were quiet and withdrawn, not sure if they could open up. By the end of the day most kids were relaxed and sharing freely; even laughing and playing. Although healing from grief is not a “one day event” we feel we made a difference in these kids’ lives as they made one more step in their grief journey.
