BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – A local organization is hosting a Christmas tea for grieving mothers who have lost a child on Sunday.

Hankies2Hope was founded in 2006 when they first hosted a tea for grieving mothers. Mothers come for tea and refreshments as they hear encouraging words from other mothers who have lost a child. Special music and a candlelight ceremony remembering the children are followed after the tea.

Hankies2Hope asks that mothers bring a framed picture of their child for display. Registration for the tea ceremony has closed but donations can be made here.
