Join us at the upcoming March of Dimes March for Babies and be a part of the HOPE Canvas! The March of Dimes works tirelessly to improve the health of babies and fund research to prevent the premature birth of babies. They also provide support to families who are grieving the loss of their premature babies.
We are partnering with the March of Dimes Williamsburg event to display the HOPE Canvas and give you the opportunity to honor your baby by adding a square of your own. We will also have copies of the book Hope is Like the Sun: Finding Hope and Healing After Miscarriage, Stillbirth or Infant Death available for purchase and the author will be personally signing them.
Want to know more about the HOPE Canvas?
The HOPE Canvas is a way to remember and honor a baby who has died from miscarriage or stillbirth. The original canvas includes 9 squares made by families in memory of their babies.
The HOPE Canvas is now virtual, to make room for the thousands of babies that die each year before their time.
Want to Add a Square?
Make your baby a part of the canvas!
- Meet us at March of Dimes March for Babies at the Bereavement Tent between 9:00am-12:00pm.
- Create a square (the original squares are 12 inches by 12 inches) and decorate any way you wish. Supplies will be provided.
- We will take a photo of your square and post it on instagram so you can add your “virtual” square to the Canvas in honor of your baby!
- Be sure to follow #Hope_Canvas on instagram so you can share your square with friends and family.
Can’t make the event on March 14th? Create your own square to add to the canvas! Find the instructions here.
Hope to see you at the event!
