The best philanthropy is constantly in search of the finalities—a search for a cause, an attempt to cure evils at their source.
-John D. Rockefeller
April is Child Abuse Awareness month. Most people that aren’t fighting for this cause don’t know how huge this epidemic actually is. Everybody is busy. Everybody is a student/paraprofessional/athlete/philanthropist, nobody has a bunch of extra free time anymore….but to help a cause so great as making children feel safe with the people that are supposed to love and nurture them is beautiful beyond measure, and takes so little time to at least start.
Spread Awareness: Share No Long Silenced Movements blog, or current statistics.
Fund-raise: Buy a box of pinwheels from prevent child abuse america, participate in a walk, donate money to Nolo, there are endless ways to produce funds.
Become More Involved: Educate yourself, volunteer at a nearby organization such as a CASA chapter, and make a difference in a survivors life.
There are many ways to help, and everyone is capable of them. There is nothing greater than doing good for a child that will change your life simply by being around you. You can help.
