*National Widow's Day was created on May 3, 2014, by Widow Wednesday organization as a day of recognition of widows. Widow Wednesday is a 501c3 non-profit founded in 2012 by Jimmy Chouteau, with the goal of assisting widows and widowers in the Kansas City area.  Their goal is to connect and build relationships with the widows in our community, sharing God’s love and care for them in visible, practical ways. 

 

**International Widow's Day was established by The Loomba Foundation to raise awareness of the issue of widowhood. The significance of June 23 is that it was on that day in 1954 that Shrimati Pushpa Wati Loomba, mother of the foundation's founder, Lord Loomba, became a widow.

 

**Founded by Angie Cartwright, National Grief Awareness Day is designed to help us all become more aware of the needs of grieving people and of the benefits that they obtain through the support of others. Grief Awareness Day is 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 human being. An opportunity for all of us to recognize and support the millions of people grieving across the nation — the thousands grieving right in our own communities, and the grieving individuals we know and see in our daily lives. After a tragic loss, the griever is often lost, alone and misunderstood. Grief Awareness Day is an opportunity to make sure that all who are grieving receive the support they need.
