Children’s Grief Awareness Day
Children’s Grief Awareness Day is observed every year on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. This time of year is a particularly appropriate time to support grieving children because the holiday season is often a difficult time after the death of a loved one. The day seeks to bring attention to the fact that often support can make all the difference. Friends of Carolina Hospice’s Child Bereavement Team is encouraging everyone to wear blue on Nov. 17 to raise awareness of the needs of grieving children.
