Sponsor cobblestone for Mother's Day and Father's Day

Sponsor cobblestone for Mother's Day and Father's Day

The 9/11 Memorial is opening next year.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum could use your help with paving the way to remembrance and hope by sponsoring a cobblestone as a gift on Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Cobblestones will line the memorial plaza at the World Trade Center. Gift orders must be placed May 6 to receive a special cobblestone gift card in time for Mother's Day and by June 17 to receive a gift card in time for Father's Day.

The memorial plaza cobblestones will line the paths of the memorial plaza, a beautiful landscape that will surround the memorial pools. The memorial glade cobblestones will line the memorial glade, a beautiful clearing within a grove of trees that will be used for special ceremonies and gatherings.

Out of respect for the victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks, the cobblestones will not be inscribed with donor names. The names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the 2001 and 1993 attacks will rim the two acre-sized pools of the 9/11 Memorial.

Electronic kiosks will be located on the plaza so donors can locate sponsored cobblestone.
