"Donations in memory are wonderful but there remains a real need for something visual and long lasting to comfort the bereaved" says Founder of A Giving Tribute, Liz Mowatt.

Mourners can now create a personalised Tribute Card on A Giving Tribute's website and make a donation to charity at the same time. The Tribute Cards are printed out by the Company and displayed at the funeral by the funeral director, greeting the mourners as they leave the service in the same way as floral tributes.
“Funeral flowers are beautiful but expensive and die. Donations in memory are wonderful but there remains a real need for something visual and long lasting to comfort the bereaved for years to come” says founder, Liz Mowatt. "A Giving Tribute solves this problem with meaningful Tributes that capture the essence of the deceased and really celebrate their life. Additionally we pass 100% of the donations to the charity selected by the bereaved".
The Tribute Cards are displayed at the funeral in a weatherproof 'Tribleau' which may easily be taken on to the farewell reception afterwards and read in the warm and dry. "The Tributes provide a real talking point as family and friends look at the photos and comment on the shared memories" continues Liz. The Tribleau complete with Tribute Cards are free for the bereaved to take home and keep.
A Giving Tribute - 'The Caring Alternative to Funeral Flowers' is available through selected funeral directors or directly through http://www.agivingtribute.com.
ABOUT A GIVING TRIBUTE:
A Giving Tribute - ‘The Caring Alternative to Funeral Flowers’, was established by Surrey based Liz Mowatt and has been two years in development. Keen to ‘celebrate life’ after someone has passed, A Giving Tribute enhances the funeral experience and gives the family of the deceased something priceless to treasure.
Mourners may read about the funeral details on A Giving Tribute’s website and then create a personal Tribute Card in memory. It’s a very simple process! Whilst on the website, mourners are invited to donate to the chosen charity.
A Giving Tribute works with charities to increase donations in memory and raise awareness of their work. 100% of the donation is passed to the charity along with full Gift Aid details.
Liz’s vision is that A Giving Tribute becomes the first choice that people make when organising a funeral and celebrating the life of their loved one whilst supporting a worthy cause.
