National Virtual Candlelight Tribute
May 15, 2020
Please join us in a Virtual Candlelight Tribute on Friday, May 15. This campaign will unite individuals across the nation in recognizing those who are grieving the death of a family member or special person.
We invite you to join us in creating space for those grieving during this global health crisis to come together and find comfort as they remember special people they have lost. This tribute will unite individuals across the nation in recognizing those who are grieving. This is not time to minimize the grief experience. This is time for compassion for self and others. Your candle will serve as a symbol of hope, remembrance, and inspiration.
Thank you for helping us shine light on childhood bereavement and grief awareness. Gather your friends and family and invite your community to be #unitedingrief. With your help, we are one step closer to ensuring that no child should be alone in grief.
