What is Memory-Trees.com?
The loved ones who have died during this pandemic are more than a number, they are more than anonymous statistics. The stories of each loved one that is being remembered in any forest deserve to be told and shared so we remember the person, and not only the event (this pandemic) that took their lives. If the remembrance symbolised by any trees that are planted is to become truly meaningful, they must therefore be attached to the memories of real people. Memories that can be recalled and retold when people visit the trees that are planted to remember them..
Supporting Covid Memorial Day with ‘Memory-Pages’
Covid Memorial Day is an idea to light a candle and spend a moment of private remembrance for those we lost, and for those who have suffered, this year. To support this idea Memory-Trees.com is providing the ability for people to create and share a ‘Memory-Page’ of a loved one they lost. They can then share this page with friends and family on social media as part of the act of collective remembrance that is being called for on the 1st January.
It’s a simple thing, and not the full Memory-Trees system planned for next year, but we hope it will help to show people some of the human stories behind the statistics that are reported daily. It is the people shown on Memory-Pages who people have lost, and it is these people and their stories who we should be spending a moment to remember on Covid Memorial Day.
