LUMINARIA is a whimsical display of personalized bags honoring loved ones this Mother’s Day. Each LUMINARIA bag, purchased by donors from across the globe for a suggested $25 donation, is uniquely displayed by local volunteers. What started along the coast in Boston, Massachusetts at the historic Scituate Lighthouse in 2020, is now expanding to 10 major cities across the country this May.LUMINARIA will take place at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, a sprawling ranch in Austin, TX and more. About empowerHER empowerHER® was formed in 2013 with a very specific mission—to empower, support and connect girls and young women up to age 24 who have experienced the loss of their mothers. empowerHER® is a supportive and inclusive community that offers year-round EVENTS for GIRLS that provides peer support and reminds girls they are not alone in their grief.
Our MENTOR PROGRAM matches girls and young women with positive role models from the community to show “loss is survivable.” empowerHER is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit and offers the only mentor program in the world serving girls and young women of mother loss in a community-based, non-therapeutic and volunteer-driven model. What began in Boston in 2013 has now expanded nationally and all activities are provided at no charge to the family. empowerHER is rooted in a deep understanding of how it feels for a girl to lose her mother and what it will take to lift her up, and give her hope, just as her mother would have wanted.
