Sona Mehring is founder and executive director of CaringBridge.org. Based upon the idea of keeping friends and family informed during times of medical crisis, Mehring's vision was to create a free service that would not only ease the stress of communication, but also provide a means for people to express cheerful words of encouragement to ones they love. This function would alleviate the burden of making several emotional phone calls without disturbing the patients need for rest. In addition, each Web site would include pictures and daily updates, as well as an online guestbook allowing all parties to stay informed without placing extra demands on hospital staff. Mehring and CaringBridge have become widely known for their creation of Compassion Technology. In 2006, she was recognized by MSN.com as one of the nation's leading women working for change. She has also been awarded CBS affiliate-WCCO's Good Neighbor Award, the Angel Foundation Star Award and was a finalist for the Minnesota High Tech Association's TEKNE Award in 2004. Mehring is also a member of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and National Health Council. Today more than 150,000 families have created free, personalized CaringBridge Web sites. These CaringBridge sites have received over a half a billion visits and leaving over 20 million guestbook messages of hope and encouragement by families and friends. All 50 United States are represented, including over 190 countries around the world. Every 10 minutes a new CaringBridge Web site is created. CaringBridge sites connect over 20 million families a year, making it the leading force and most widely used online service of its kind. For additional information, please visit www.caringbridge.org.
