April is Child Abuse Awareness month

First, I would like to thank Alyssa at Keeping the Kingdom First for her post on this topic. I had forgotten about the meaning of this month until I read her entry, and I encourage you to read it, too.

When I was in undergrad, I was in a sisterhood and one of our philanthropies was a state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America. We tried to raise awareness and money for this cause, and now I am asking you to do the same. However you feel moved to help, please do so. You can display a blue ribbon on your clothes or blog. You can donate to an organization that helps in child abuse prevention & services. You can pray for these kids. You can find many ways to do something about the tragedy that is child abuse.

I encourage you to display this ribbon on your blog. Just save it to your computer first.

Remember, if you ever suspect that a child is being abused, you can report it anonymously. Two national hotlines I have found online are 1-800-25-ABUSE and 1-800-4-A-CHILD. Please, do something for those who can’t.

I leave you with some videos, as a tribute and a reminder. They are very hard to watch, and are not for kids, but remember, while you can press the stop button when it gets scary, these kids can’t.
