You may not have been aware that April was Child Abuse Prevention Month. Child abuse and bullying are a global problem. Author, Gil Keough, formerly of The Bronx, NY, now residing in Phoenixville, PA has launched a non profit campaign to help educate children and adults on how to protect themselves against abuse and bullying on indiegog.com.
Every 10 seconds in the U.S. a child is abused. That means 8,640 children every day, 60,480 every week, and 241,920 every month. 20 million children are bullied every single day. We may not be able to stop it, but we can certainly help kids to find a voice and fight back.
These victims need heroes. Each and every one of us has the chance to be heroic. When we see someone in trouble we have the opportunity to help them. When we see the news reports and read the numbers we wish we could help, but we wonder what we can do. Edmund Burke said "In order for evil to flourish, all that is required is for good men to do nothing."
Together we can make a difference and defeat the monsters. Please help make a success of this project by visiting the link below and forwarding it to as many people in your contact list as possible. Let's give kids a way to fight back and begin the healing process as soon as possible.
