Memorial Butterfly Release at Home

Make your legacy a better ending to a life story

Each spring, we remember loved ones with a live butterfly release, symbolizing our lasting love and the renewal of the season.

Butterflies symbolize our lasting love and the spiritual renewal of a new season. We’re honoring loved ones who are gone from our sight, but not from our hearts.

When you participate, you are also helping Alive’s patients and families write a special final chapter together. All funds raised support our nonprofit services including grief counseling, community education, and financial aid.

What Is a Butterfly House?

A symbol of love, a community hug, a reminder of joy…our butterfly houses are all of these. They represent the space we hold for loving and remembering those who have died. They bring a smile to all who see them and remind us we are not alone. Order your own or give a gift today!

“I bought 6 finished houses for all my neighbors in my cul de sac. Seeing them on our block reminds us we are not alone. My daughter and I painted our house in honor of my mother.” – Kimberly

“I bought 3 to build with my mother, my son and his cousin to remember my father.” – Mac

“My husband and I built and painted 7 houses with our teens who are looking for activities. We talked a lot about our family history, the people we miss, and how they still inspire us. We gave the houses to our favorite local businesses.” – Ali
