Dying to Know Day
Monday, August 8th
Dying to Know Day, on August 8, is all about fostering deep conversations about the one thing all humans have in common — death. It’s an entire day dedicated to destigmatizing the topic of dying and educating others on how to die in a way that stays true to themselves and their wishes. The hope, on this holiday, is that we’ll all accept and plan on death so that we can live even better in the present moment. Learn more about how to celebrate this day by clicking here.
