World Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day
Did you know that every year on October 15th, families across the world light candles at 7 pm local time to honor all babies who have died in pregnancy or infancy?
It's simple to participate! Just set a reminder for 7 pm on 10/15 (sign up on our mailing list here for a reminder!) to light your candle, then let it blaze for at least one hour to pass the torch to the next time zone.
With families joining in solidarity all over the world, we'll create a continuous 24 hour wave of light in honor of all the babies we are missing! Because every baby #StillCounts.
Here are a few more ways you can get ready for the Oct 15th Int'l Wave of Light:
