Farewelling is a new type of funeral home that aims to celebrate the end of life process, while also revolutionizing how we think of funeral planning. According to a recent study, only one-fifth of Americans have communicated their funeral plans to loved ones ahead of time, so to combat this issue, the platform allows users to plan your future "farewell" or that of a recently departed loved one.
The new-age company was launched by entertaining expert and event planner Karen Bussen and funeral director Elizabeth Meyer Karansky. It offers a digital platform with tools, and resources—such as a podcast, checklists, blog posts, and planning tips—to create a personal and honorable celebration of life.
The idea behind Farewelling, according to Bussen, is "influence the industry itself and drag them into the twenty-first century in a positive way, so that they can build or create more beautiful spaces, so that they can innovate and help families personalize the celebrations in ways that are still evolving.”
