Every year since 1997 CHERUBS members have participated in National Children’s Memorial Day. This was started by Compassionate Friends in remembrance of all children lost and they have 1000’s of volunteers who work very hard to have this day passed every year. This includes children of all ages, including those not yet born, and includes children lost from all diseases, birth defects, accidents, murders, suicides – ALL children. Because we have several cherubs who were lost over 1 yr old, the Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day didn’t encompass all of our cherubs – National Children’s Memorial Day does. It also allow grieving parents to meet with other local grieving parents in their areas. This event occurs every year on the 2nd Sunday of December and proclamations by the Senate and President are signed. Proclamations are also signed by other heads of state around the world.

Each year, most of our grieving families light candles at 7:00 pm – with each time zone this creates a continuous light around the world for 24 hours.
