Children’s Grief Awareness Day is observed every year on the third Thursday in November (the Thursday before the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving). This time of year is a particularly appropriate time to support grieving children because the holiday season is often an especially difficult time after a death.
Children’s Grief Awareness Day seeks to bring attention to the fact that often support can make all the difference in the life of a grieving child.
In 2013, Children’s Grief Awareness Day will be Thursday, November 21.
Children’s Grief Awareness Day provides an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of the painful impact that the death of a loved one has in the life of a child, an opportunity to make sure that these children receive the support they need.
Join New Hope by wearing blue on November 21st, and print out and create your own HOPE the Butterfly, click here to print a butterfly. Together we can hold on to HOPE and show grieving children “We care and We are here.”
Thanks for your support!
