A short summary on why we do what we do and why changing attitudes around death are important to us.
We launched Farewill in November last year with one clear mission: change the way the world deals with death, forever. Since then, thousands of people have joined us in making their will online to plan for their own deaths in a more accessible, meaningful and joyful way.
Making a will is one of the most important things each of us will ever do. But it’s been complicated by old-fashioned attitudes, legal jargon and lack of transparency. Dying without a will costs your family thousands in lost assets, and leaves the law to decide who gets everything you own and love. We believe there’s a better way. We believe in a world where wills are accessible to everyone, where everyone can have a normal, open and positive conversation about death. We believe planning for our own death not only takes care of the legals, but helps us appreciate and celebrate life. A way to say now what you can’t later. We’re blowing the cobwebs off the death industry. And the journey starts with better wills.
Writing a will is one of those things that people in the UK put off for years, but you may be surprised to discover how simple it really is. Here, we’ll explain how you can write your will online in just 15 minutes.
