Life Matters Media
Quality of life at the end of life

President’s Report

Dear Friends,

We need your support this fall to continue the impactful work we do throughout our community. Please help us meet our What Matters Most Campaign goal of raising $35,000 by December 1st; that’s Giving Tuesday, a national movement to remember the work of nonprofits after a retail binge spanning from Black Friday to Cyber Monday.

The MR Bauer Foundation has once again promised us a generous gift, but this gift requires us to attract individual donations as well. We were able to do it last year, so we hope you will help us again! If you’re ready now, here’s how you can donate online:

ChicagoPublicLibraryEach Tuesday until December 1st, we will send you a snippet of the scope of our work thus far or a plan for our future. We invite you to SHARE this story of Life Matters Media on Facebook or TWEET it on Twitter so others will come to realize the work we are doing to better the end of life experience for so many through thoughtful consideration and planning. Read on!

Today, we are excited to share news of our upcoming work within Chicago Public Libraries. No matter where you live in Chicago, we will be near you in the coming months to “Start the Conversation” and provide individual, free assistance for all those thinking through their own care choices, working to identify an ideal surrogate decision maker and document their plans legally. Please check this out, and join us at our first session on Saturday afternoon, October 10th at the Wrightwood Asbhurn Branch! (

TERESAThanks so much for helping us help so many. We also want to remind you of our upcoming event on November 4th with Jim Towey, “Lessons from Mother Teresa in Caring for the Dying.” ( This event is free to all due to the generosity of so many, and a reception will follow. This might be our most exciting event to date.

Please remember us in your end of the year giving and know that any donation to our small and growing organization goes a LONG way.

Hope to see you soon,

Randi Belisomo
President and Co-Founder
