What’s the best way to offer condolences in a group bereavement card?

When a colleague or friend passes, or is bereaved, it is a very difficult time. Not least because many factors affect the grieving process. One thing is essential for the bereaved - the love and support from all who knew the person who passed.

Immediate family will provide the closest and most immediate support. There is an important role too for work colleagues, friends, community, church or club members. It is how this happens and what to say that many can find difficult when ‘sorry for your loss’ isn’t enough.

Here are some pointers to navigate this tricky topic:
  1. Sympathy expressed through your personal connections is a great comfort.
  2. Insight into life outside the home is an immense help in the grieving process
  3. Know when to offer condolences - an understanding of the five stages of grief will be a good start point
  4. Be mindful of circumstances and context reinforces the nature of the group’s support
  5. Be true to the person and your relationship with them. This helps keep positive memories alive.
  6. Recalling special moments is a source of great comfort, especially in the longer term.
  7. A positive memory helps all cope with the loss. The bereaved and all those who knew, interacted with, and loved the person who has died.

A Thankbox online sympathy or bereavement card sends condolences to the bereaved in an easy and comprehensive way. It delivers initial support and longer-term comfort.

A permanent reminder of an important part of the life of the loved one who has passed is of great value. Here's a resource that may give further insight into the best way to provide condolences as a group.

Is my Thankbox secure and private?


Only people with the sharing link can access a Thankbox and only to leave a message. Thankbox links are not visible to search engines.

Thankbox servers and software are secure and compliant with best practice security protocols. We've partnered with the best payment processing service to ensure maximum security of payment details.

Thankbox never shares any sensitive customer data with external organisations. 

What are the benefits of an online group sympathy card?

A traditional paper card is perfect for those closest to the bereaved. It allows for an intimate (and immediate) one-to-one message. This is important at a time of most shock.

For a group - coworkers, community members, sports or hobby groups, the church - the time for support comes a little later. An online sympathy card, like a Thankbox is ideal because it:
  1. Allows everyone to contribute, wherever they are in the world at the time of need. All that’s needed is an internet connection. 
  2. The more that sign, the more authentic the condolences. This provides greater comfort and aids the healing process.
  3. Allows for complete freedom of expression. With no message or word limits a Thankbox doesn’t restrict anyone in what they want to say and how they say it.
  4. Provides for personal reflection.  Video, photos and GIFs keep precious moments, memories and events alive.
  5. Lasts forever. A Thankbox is always there, a simple click away. 
  6. If appropriate, provides a collection from the group as standard

Is it easy to manage and customise my Thankbox sympathy card?

It's a breeze.

Thankbox is designed from a customer viewpoint. So making changes, upgrading and managing a Thankbox is super easy - anytime right up to the point of sending. 

From your dashboard as the organiser you can:
  • Customise your Thankbox - backgrounds, titles, icons. Upgrading to Premium allows more customisation.  Video in messages; raised collection pot ceiling; handcrafted backgrounds and a host of user uploaded customisations.
  • Change the Thankbox send date.
  • Decide who sees the collection pot amount.
  • Create a reminder. Send an anniversary memorial Thankbox to the person bereaved to show you still remember and cherish time spent with the person passed.
  • See what all those fab messages look like as the recipient.
  • Copy and share the Thankbox sharing link.

Contributors to a Thankbox can:
  • Change their message
  • Change any GIF, photo or video
  • Change their choice of font

And throughout the life of a Thankbox everyone in the loop and informed of progress all along.
