I have worked with Amanda Cares for over twelve years and am a financial contributor to the organization also. The prior Executive Director (and founder) had a huge passion for what she did, running Amanda the Panda for approximately 25 years. The current Executive Director (Charlie) has as much passion as the prior. Charlie is a cheerful and bubbly person who listens and is compassionate for the families who have lost a loved one. The other staff are exciting individuals with a simlar passion for what they do also. Death is one of the hardest things for people to live with and knowing others are grieving and listening helps the individuals work through the loss. They realize their feelings are not abnormal. Amanda the Panda assists with allowing the families to grieve openly, knowing there will not be any ridicule, and support groups allow the families to talk and live their life, sharing their experiences. Each person grieves their own way and Amanda the Panda helps them with the process.
