Children’s Grief Awareness Day has been observed since 2008 on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. Since the holiday season can be an especially difficult time after a death for a grieving child, organizers chose November to bring awareness.
LHWHS students participated in wearing blue on Children’s Grief Awareness Day. They also raised $290 in donations. According to Children’s Grief Awareness Day, one child out of every 20 will have a parent who dies before they graduate from high school.
