We need to hear your voice!

Soaring Spirits is running another survey of widowed people, and we need as many widowed people as possible to take the survey. Please watch the following video from Michele Neff Hernandez, Executive Director of Soaring Spirits International, for details about the survey.

Any widowed person can participate, they do not have to be a part of Soaring Spirits programs. If you'd please share, share, share...we'd be very grateful and the information we collect will be powerful!
