OUR FOUNDER A widow and mentor

Carolyn Moor 

girls_videosplashMore than 12 million widowed women in the United States go unnoticed in their pain and aloneness—trying to pull the pieces together, struggling to move forward. They may feel alone, but they are not alone. A woman widowed in her 30's with two young children suddenly found herself mentoring other widows. Following her appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show she realized her purpose was to reach out and help other widows get their lives back, piece by piece. Thus, Modern Widows Club was birthed and has been changing widows' lives ever since.  If #OneMillionWidows became mentors they could impact and inspire the 245 million widows worldwide. Carolyn's favorite quote is 'Teamwork makes the dream work!' Please Join us, email me your questions at info@modernwidowsclub.com and support this vital movement for women.

There’s nothing more joyful than being in love, and there’s nothing more traumatic and painful than losing that same person and being left suddenly alone. That’s where a nonprofit such as Modern Widows Club brings value to individuals, community and society at large. There are two phenomenons that happen to widows that friends, family, co-workers and bosses do not realize when it comes to women and widowhood. They are invisibly crushing for millions of widows and their families…   Read more  

A Widow’s Holiday Wish

Carolyn Moor Holidays

‘A Widow’s Holiday Wish’ – Despite what you might think, I don’t have to do the holidays. There is not a rule that says I must do so. – The frenetic tension of this season makes me want to withdrawal, so when you see me it’s extra tough to pretend all is okay. – In the back of my mind, the one gift I’m thinking about is the one I won’t receive from the one person I loved…   Read more
