Adopt a Duck Now!


For 42 years, KinderMourn has provided help, hope and healing to bereaved parents and grieving children. We provide counseling services for parents who have experienced the death of a child and children grieving the death of a parent, sibling, or other loved one. Our mission has remained strong and the heart of KinderMourn still beats for one purpose…to provide a safe haven for those who have suffered unimaginable loss.

How can I adopt ducks?

Adopt one lucky duck or an entire raft! Start your own team or join an existing team! CLICK the Home or Teams tab above to get Quackin'!! The more ducks you adopt, the better your chances of winning the GRAND PRIZE! But more importantly, the more ducks you adopt, the more KinderMourn can bring help and hope to so many families in need.

How do I adopt a duck from a team?
Select the duck image on the front of the website or click the link underneath the duck image which will take you to the teams tab. Select your favorite team and then select the adopt a duck now button. The team will receive credit for the duck adoption but the adopted ducks are yours.

What is my tag number?
We can’t give you your tag number because we won’t know it until we run what we call a "Mix Report" right before the race. We want to make sure that no duck has any favor over another (they are all equally adorable) and that the race is not fixed in any way, so numbers are never given out. However, rest assured that all of the ducks have a chance to win!

How does it work?

Everyone who adopts a duck will be entered into our E-Quack database. This database stores all of your adoption information. Next to your name in E-Quack is the number of ducks you have adopted. Once a tag range is entered into E-Quack, the numbers will be randomly assigned to each adopted duck. E-Quack automatically assigns the number of ducks you have adopted next to Tag Numbers. Thus, if you adopted 5 ducks, your name will be placed next to 5 different Tag Numbers.

How will I know if my duck wins?

One of our KinderMourn Duck Race coordinators will contact you using the information you provided with your duck adoption.
