    Hello there :)

    I'm The Reluctant Widow, it's lovely to meet you.

    I've been blogging about my experiences as a young widow for over three years now. Writing has always been therapy and a sanctuary for me, and it's always been a way of processing what is going on in my head, and becoming a widow really did give me a lot to write about...

    My Facebook page can be found here:

    I quickly learnt that my ramblings were helping others, and it encouraged me to keep writing, to keep sharing my truth and my story in the hope that others would, well, find hope in my words. And it does. From this, a website was born, and I hope that this makes my ramblings more accessible to those outside of social media.

    The money raised will help to maintain the website, and hopefully develop it in the coming years, it''s purely for that purpose.

    The website can be found here:

    This site has three main purposes: Lots of posts written by me about my own experiences of grief, links to my social media pages, and some supporting links to signpost people to other organisations that they may find useful. It is a work in progress, but it's out there, to be found, and to bring comfort to those who need it.

    Every penny will be very much appreciated, so thank you in advance if you decide to donate anything.

    The thing I'd love the most would be for you to share the website or facebook page with someone who might need it. That would make me smile.

    The journey is a lonely one, but I hope that ramblings can bring you a little comfort, that is my wish for you.

    Much love,

    TRW x

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
