What is it?  Lisa’s Legacy offers a grief bag that can be given to someone who is struggling with a difficult life circumstance.  The struggle may involve the death of a loved one, a divorce, a devastating medical diagnosis, job loss, depression or loneliness.   It offers an opportunity for the giver to engage the recipient in compassionate conversation when delivering the bag.   For those who find it hard to approach someone who is experiencing a tragedy, this grief bag gives purpose and meaning for a visit.  The contents of the bag are meant to bring comfort and cheer to a person at a time when it is often a big effort just to function and complete daily tasks.

Types of kits available:






The bags are provided free of charge and are supported solely by donations and grants.   A single donation of $35 can provide one adult or children's bag and $25 will cover the cost of a teen bag.  If you would like to donate, please visit our Donate page.  A donation is greatly appreciated!

Why?  Lisa’s Legacy was started as a way to carry on the memory of Lisa Filler and to comfort others in their struggle.  The bag provides you with an opportunity to open a conversation with the person dealing with loss.
