Jorja’s Awesome Grief Village (J.A.G. Village) is a legacy built on the strongest foundation of compassion, love and kindness. It is a space for honouring grief and our loved ones, tolerating the intolerable, and for collective healing.
We understand that grief touches every part of our lives, and is not a problem to be fixed, but love that needs to be carried, nurtured and honoured. Our relationships do not die when our people die, we have opportunities to continue these relationships into our futures, J.A.G. Village is evidence of this.
J.A.G. Village is a social enterprise that is dedicated to providing support, a sense of community and empowering children, youth, and their families who are anticipating or have experienced the loss of a loved one through counselling, grief education and collective healing activities.
To promote and create a culture both internally and externally of J.A.G. Village where individuals, families and communities recognize that grief is not a problem to be solved, it is love that needs to be nurtured, carried and honoured, even when that love and/or grief is complicated.
Buttons and Grief Wear (tee and sweatshirts) can be physical symbols of loss that allow you to continue sharing your loved one with the world.Learn More

Thank you community for showing up with your gifts of food, clothing, and monetary donations! There was no shortage of love and support!!!
