Meet Mita, Next Member in Our #EthicalHumans Campaign

Mita Carriman rarely thought about death until she lost two of her parents in less than two years. During this time, she was not only dealing with immense grief but also the financial burdens of burying a loved one. Not one to rest until a problem is solved, Mita yearned for technology that offered a dignified, easy and elegant way to ease these burdens.

Mita Carriman rarely thought about death until she lost two of her parents in less than two years. During this time, she was not only dealing with immense grief but also the financial burdens of burying a loved one. Not one to rest until a problem is solved, Mita yearned for technology that offered a dignified, easy and elegant way to ease these burdens.

Her solution was Sunsetting, an online memorial platform she created that enables users to fundraise for memorial services, announce & invite guests to funeral services and share comments and stories about the deceased. This “collective grief experience,” as Mita calls it, creates a roadmap to help a grieving family properly honor and celebrate the life of their loved ones. You can find Mita at Ethical NYC’s Death Café, where she enjoys conversation about the typically taboo topic of death over tea and cake. If you’re interested in learning more about Sunsetting, you can reach out to Mita at m@sunsetting.co.
