Affiliate programs

When we link to products and services in the Go With Grace Resources Directory, those links may be affiliate links. If you click on any of those affiliate links and make a purchase within a certain timeframe, Go With Grace will earn a small commission. The commission is paid by the retailers, at no cost to you.

Here’s an example: If we link to a children’s book about ‘talking about death’, and you click on that link and complete a purchase within the next 24 hours, we might receive a commission somewhere between 1 to 10 per cent of your total order.

We are careful to only link to products and retailers that we know and recommend. Money earned keeps Go With Grace running and allows us to bring you more content and resources to help start conversations or plan a loved ones farewell. Thank you for your support.


We offer paid listing plans and advertising options within our Business Directory and content pages. In this case, we use a third-party service (Stripe) for payment processing.

We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to the payment processor whose use of your personal information is governed by their own Stripe Privacy Policy
