Circle of Giving

Circle of Giving is a gift drive with a goal of providing gift bags to each of our Hands on Healing families as they “graduate” from our groups in the upcoming year.  These gifts provide our families with the tools to continue the healing process at home using the healthy coping skills and creative expression they learned at group.  Please consider supporting our families through this program.

Join our Circle of Giving campaign!

Circle of Giving “Hands on Healing Bag”

These bags are gifted to each Full Circle family at the end of their eight week Hands On Healing session (we run approximately five sessions of Hands on Healing at our Center per calendar year). This gift will acknowledge how far they have come in their grief journey and will help them continue using the same skills and strategies at home that they learned at Full Circle.

New this year, our primary focus is on books! We have found the gift of grief-themed books to be one of the most valuable tools we can give our families. Our goal is to provide each group participant an age-appropriate book at the conclusion of their eight week group.

Option 1:

Collect each of the following supplies to create one complete Hands on Healing Bag. (Full Circle will provide the gift bag and assemble the bag.)

  •  One Children’s Book (from wish list)
  • One Teen Book (from wish list)
  • Two Adult Books (from wish list)
  • Two Small 4×6 Photo Albums
  • Four Blank/Lined Journals or Sketch Pads
  • One Set of Colored Pencils
  • One Set of Washable Markers

Option 2:

Collect 15 of any item from the list above to help assemble the 15 bags that are needed for the 15 families that participate in each 8-week session of Hands on Healing.

Option 3

Donate $100.00 to cover the cost of one Hands on Healing Bag and Full Circle will purchase all supplies and assemble the bag for you!


I would like to donate the following:

Option 1: One Complete Bag

Option 2: Fifteen of any item:_____________________________
