Lands­bankinn makes a dona­tion to Ljón­shjarta in the name of Ex­cep­tion­al Com­pan­ies

31 October 2023 - Landsbankinn

As in previous years, Landsbankinn has made a donation to a good cause in the name of all Exceptional Companies recognised by Creditinfo. This year, the donation of ISK 4 million, goes to Ljónshjarta.

A total of 1,006 companies were recognised as Exceptional Companies in 2023.

Ljónshjarta is an association that provides support for young adults who have lost their spouse, and for their children. Losing your spouse at a young age is one of the worst tragedies life can offer. Grieving while also being a caregiver to children and responsible for a household is hard. It is important to get support and advice relevant to the situation, and to find all information about your rights as well as ways to work through grief for both adults and children in one place. Last but not least, it is helpful for most to get to know others who are in a similar position, experience understanding and support from those who have first-hand knowledge of what the crisis entails.

Ljónshjarta’s goal is to support younger adults who have lost their spouse and to be a forum for people to be there for each other in their grief. The work involves maintaining a website with various informative material, host talks and get-togethers where adults, teenagers and younger children can meet and spend time in each other’s company.
