Children’s Grief Awareness Day

November 16


The Solace Tree, Reno, Nevada invites schools and businesses to participate and help illuminate grief for Children’s Grief Awareness Day on November 16, 2017. Be a part of the vision, mission and goals of this event provide a world of support for grieving children so that they feel less alone and more supported through changing the culture surrounding children and grief.
Help us illuminate grief and light up the world for children everywhere on November 16, 2017! Email us TODAY for more information on how your school or business can become involved and other fundraising ideas at

Created in 2008 by the Highmark Caring Place, A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents and Their Families, and since recognized by organizations around the world, 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. It 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.

How Can YOU Participate?
– Decorate your office, building or classroom with as much blue as possible.
– Blue Out! Have everyone wear blue for the day (contact us to order special CGAD tees).
– Sell blue lollipops, blue balloons or blue cupcakes for a fundraiser.
– Create a memory wall for students, employees and clients to contribute to.
– Create a HOPE chain using various shades of blue strips of paper so that students, employees or clients can write the name of a loved ones they would like to remember.
– Design a thumbprint tree and allow students, employees and clients to write messages.
