B Positive newsletter is exclusively shared with Final Flingers – the people who sign up for an account on Final Fling to use our Life Planning Tools and manage their end of life plans.
We carried out research when we started Final Fling to find out whether it was just us or whether others thought they should be thinking ahead, making plans and taking personal responsibility for end of life plans.
There was a resounding YES – everyone agreed… no doubt about it. Absolutely. And yet, do we plan? NO!
We’re a tricky bunch – human beings! Fruit or chocolate? TV or tennis? Crisps or crisp lettuce? Documentary or soap? Walk or wine? We know fine well which one is better for us. There’s a strong chance we won’t be picking it.
B Positive newsletter – let us be your conscience!
So think of B Positive as your conscience. Your friendly prompt. Your coach.
Every 4 weeks B Positive newsletter will send you a short message to inspire, check that you’ve got the hang of the site, make sure that you’re getting the best out of Final Fling. Most of all, B Positive newsletter will check that you’re doing the things you meant to when you signed up.
“I get called B for short,” said Final Fling Founder, Barbara Chalmers. “And I’m an eternal optimist, so B Positive seemed like the obvious name for a newsletter for Final Fling users. It aims to be a quick check in once a month, offering tips, tasks, a wee injection of inspiration to keep planners on track. It won’t ever take more than 5 minutes to scan and hopefully will prompt helpful action.
“A friend who came along to one of our Death Cafes died suddenly. Her family were distraught. One good thing – her husband was able to find out that she wanted a natural burial – not the cremation he was about to plan. These little things can be hugely strengthening at a hellish time. That’s the sort of outcome B Positive newsletter aims for. Small steps, big outcome.”
B Positive will come straight to your in-box every 4 weeks. You can unsubscribe at any time.
