Ethical wills are a way to share your love with family and close friends. Think
of an ethical will as a heartfelt letter describing what truly
matters most in your life. An ethical will passes on life lessons, values,
joys, prayers, hopes, and dreams for present and future generations.
Unlike a Last Will and Testament or a Living
Will, an ethical will is NOT a legal document. An ethical
will describes your treasures of the heart, not your treasures. !
Why should you write your ethical will?
Quite simply, there is no one else like YOU! You
have incredible wisdom and experience to share—no matter what your age or
background. Your ethical will has the potential to affect multiple generations
perhaps even hundreds of years from now. Therefore, an ethical will is one of
the greatest gifts you can give to your children and grandchildren.
Once you complete your free ethical will using
our tool below, it is important to put your ethical will in a safe
place—someplace where those you love will be sure to find it someday (perhaps
with your Last Will and Testament). You may also want to share your
ethical will with your family and friends at the time you write
it. An ethical will certainly can help in communicating how you
really feel and it may be a great conversation starter.
