Most people are afraid of death. But members New Zealand’s Kiwi Coffin Club are facing it head on. Founded by Katie Williams, a former midwife and hospice nurse, members build and then decorate their own customized coffins as a way of celebrating their lives and highlighting their unique personalities. Beyond the coffin building itself, the club has built a strong, supportive community where people can have frank conversations and reflect on their future.
