NOVEMBER 15, 2018

Children's Grief Awareness Day began in 2007 as an idea from a school in northwestern Pennsylvania. Since that time, it has grown to become an international annual day of observance. Many individuals and families observe the day in memory of a loved one who has died. Others recognize the day in support of friend or family member who has had a loved one die.
