We were excited to have news anchor Mike McCune from WCAX visit the Wake Up To Dying Project while we were in Burlington, VT. Mike interviewed Nina Thompson, the Wake Up To Dying Project’s executive director for a short segment that aired on the nightly news:
WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports- “It’s a topic many don’t want to even think about, much less talk about with someone else: dying. But this weekend, a traveling exhibit has been set up on the front lawn of the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington that aims to change the way we think about death. The Wake Up to Dying Project uses the power of story to explore death, dying and life. Watch the video to hear more from executive director Nina Thompson.”
The next day WCAX returned to film an additional video on our “Creative Exploration of Death and Dying for Kids and Families” workshop held on the lawn of the Fletcher Free Library.
“Death can be a difficult topic to discuss for people of all ages, but for parents with kids, it can be even harder. Saturday in Burlington parents got some extra help through a workshop teaching kids about death and loss.”
