There is no official way to start your own local Widow Wednesday. It can be one friendship or you could mobilize a group to find and bring a whole community of widows together. It's a powerful opportunity to bring people and let the widows know they're not alone.
Widow Wednesday is a movement not a day... we did Wednesday because it worked with our schedule. Choose a day that works for you and join the conversation online with #widowwednesday
Ways to Serve the Widow:
Take him/her out to lunch or dinner, better yet, invite them over to your house!
Have children in your family, neighborhood or church send him/her artwork or letters in the mail
Send cards on Mothers Day/Fathers Day, birthday or other special days
Offer to do Yardwork or simple Home or Auto Maintenance (and, of course, follow up on your offers!)
Create a list of trusted and reputable resources for repair/labor/financial services to help them avoid being taken advantage of in crisis situaions
Go for walks with them
Take them to a museum, park or zoo
Take them shopping or do basic shopping for them
Take them to medical appointments
Bring a homecooked meal, especially for widowers
Stop by for a game of checkers or cards
