Upcoming Events

Day of Hope Prayer Flag Ceremony
7:00-9:00 pm at 5th Ave. Beach, Bradley Beach
Join us for this year's Day of Hope Prayer Flag Ceremony in honor of our babies at the 5th Avenue beach in Bradley Beach from 7-9 pm on August 19th. August 19th is about coming together as a whole community to openly speak about these children and celebrate their short lives. Each year thousands of people around the globe take part in the The Day of Hope by hanging up prayer flags in honor of their babies and children that have died. Many people also share their Prayer Flag awareness images on Facebook & Instagram. You can use the hashtag #august19thdayofhope.

Please bring your prayer flag, family and friends and join us for a peaceful evening to honor our babies and bring awareness to pregnancy and infant loss. Please share this with anyone you think would like to join us and create a prayer flag.
