ASD’s #FuneralDirectorFacts Holiday Image Shared More than 80,000 times on Social Media

Media, PA—An information graphic created by ASD – Answering Service for Directors recently struck a cord with thousands of funeral director Facebook users. The image was created to spotlight the sacrifices made by funeral directors who work on-call during holidays to provide support to their communities. The graphic was created as part of ASD’s #FuneralDirectorFacts series on Facebook and Twitter and has now been shared online more than 80,000 times.


Many people outside of the profession are unaware of the many ways funeral professionals devote themselves to others. ASD shares #FuneralDirectorFacts to help educate others about the dedication of directors. Each fact focuses on a different way funeral directors go beyond the call of duty to serve families. The series was created to give directors an opportunity to share information about their profession to their Facebook friends and help more people understand the nature of funeral service work.

With Christmas approaching, many funeral directors are prepared to miss holiday celebrations at home if a family in need requires their services. ASD wanted to highlight this sacrifice and create an information graphic that funeral directors could feel proud to share.


“We are thrilled that so many funeral professionals have related to our #FuneralDirectorFacts series on Facebook, particularly the fact that focuses on the realities of being on-call during a major holiday,” says ASD Vice President, Kevin Czachor. “Some have even cropped the image to remove our logo from it. What matters to us is that so many directors connected with the post and shared it. Watching a positive funeral director image go viral is a thrill for us.”
