One of the most rewarding parts of our work is hearing people’s experiences with the projects. People have created Before I Die walls for many reasons, including honoring a loved one, connecting with their community, or promoting discussion of mortality. Couples have become engaged in front of The Atlas of Tomorrow, and people have shared a wide range of responses on projects and worked towards their goals in inspiring ways. We would love to hear your experiences, big and small. Many people’s stories have been featured in books, press, events, and online channels, and they have inspired others around the world.

This is optional, but we would like to credit you if we share your story at events, online, or through other channels.
