A Social Network for Loss

The Goodgrief App is the social network for loss. Finally there’s a network where grieving people can privately and safely connect, chat, and support each other while finding a new normal.

Goodgrief works by putting you in touch with others who have experienced loss due to a variety of different causes.

Support at Your Fingertips

About 2.8 million people die annually in the U.S., and 50 million globally. Each death leaves behind about five grieving people. That means there are 14 million people trying to hold it together at any one moment in the U.S. alone. We believe we are each other’s best system.

Here’s How Our App Works

Find

Find people who know what it’s like to be grieving a loss.

Connect

Connect with like-minded people across the globe.

Chat

Chat with others to help cope with grief and learn to heal.

Our Story

About 1.5 years ago Kim and Robynne were connected through a friend of the man Kim had lost. Both Kim and Robynne were going through their own respective heartache due to loss. Kim lost her partner suddenly and unexpectedly. Meanwhile, Robynne was saying a slow goodbye to her mother because of metastatic breast cancer and also became a single mother.

There were commonalities they shared that centered around grief: pain, sadness, anger, frustration, loneliness, isolation, humor and a strong need to forge something beautiful out of it all. The app was inspired and grew from a unique texting friendship between Kim and Robynne over their own personal grief. They became a “lifeboat of support” for each other. At some point, they said “we should create this for others!” And so they have – a digital space for others to find comfort, support and understanding.

What People are Saying

“This is a beautiful thing you’re creating. I know it must not be easy to be an app developer…I’ve tried, lol…Keep going…This will help so many of us. I’ve already made connections with three others.”

“That brought tears to my eyes. I am, first, happy that you are finding peace and a way to handle all this grief. And second, so impressed! Not that I didn’t think you had it in you, but that you were able to put it together. Very cool and helpful to so many.”

“Thank you so much Kim. I lost my daughter. She was 28. I saw this website I think in Woman’s Day Magazine. Thought I would check it out. Did speak with a woman similar age who lost her son. To speak to someone who knows exactly how you feel is something. You’re not alone with your thoughts and feelings. What an incredible site. It has been a help and blessing. Thank you very much…”

  • Returning to Life

    Huntington Bay feeds directly into the Long Island Sound. I live here. Salty air, beaches, and marinas each add to the beauty of this town.  As summer sets in, the waters of Long Island’s north shore are full of life. Boats reflect the vibrant energy of the long summer days and serve as the backdrop to sunsets.

  • Loss Monsoon

    Like the approach of monsoon clouds, I felt the words move rapidly toward me. Just like a monsoon, I got caught off guard. I’ve been in monsoons before. They rain fiercely, heavily, pack a mean punch and appear to never let up.
