The Big Give has begun with a focus on Emergency Relief.

Please visit, and use the search tool to find ABODE Contemplative Care for the Dying. Or, better yet, click here to go directly to our page. Gifts of all sizes are so helpful.

Social media is a big component of Big Give. Please follow ABODE on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and share our favorite stories with your own followers – stories like our surprise visit from Flash.


We knew that our Guest, Daniel, had been a horse trainer. So we asked if Triple H Equitherapy Center would bring a horse to visit him. They did just that, delivering Flash through our back yard. We wheeled Daniel’s bed outside through the French doors of his room, and we felt his sweet response as he met Flash, face to face. Daniel died just a few days later. We wonder if he was thinking of Flash and the many other horses he loved so much.


This is one of many beautiful stories that make ABODE such a heart-warming experience for all of us. Your donations make all the difference:

  • $25 Provides cloth bed pads for our Guests’ comfort

  • $100 Keeps our home and grounds beautiful for Guests and families to enjoy

  • $275 Covers 24 hours of care from staff and volunteers

  • $500 Supports memorial services for Guests, many of whom are veterans

  • $1,000 Contributes to meals, supplies, training and other aspects of our care

  • $2,500 Supports a Guest for nine days, the average length of stay at ABODE

Thank you in advance for helping us with another successful Big Give campaign.
