One child is too many.
At this time of year, when we all celebrate children and family, it easy to forget that almost two-thirds of children grow up in families where they experience a trauma so severe it hurts and harms them for their entire life.
Trauma from abuse or maltreatment sentences children to shorter, poorer, less healthy lives. The pain of abuse can gnaw away at one’s soul. Child abuse and maltreatment is both common and preventable. The Stop Abuse Campaign is here to prevent it.
With a team of experts, we have developed scientific approaches to preventing abuse before it starts. Evidence- based approaches exist. We just have to implement them. That’s why we're here.
Every day, we educate thousands of people about abuse, and how to prevent it. We work with legislators and public officials. We transform communities that tolerate abuse into communities working together to prevent it. Ensuring parents, especially those who were parented badly themselves, can raise happy, healthy children. Children full of the innocence and joy we celebrate at this time of year.
We’re making so much progress. But we can’t continue protecting kids without your help.
Please help us protect more children. Donate what you can; $10, $50, or even more.
Help us. Your donation ensures more abuse is prevented. Because no child deserves abuse. Because prevention saves taxpayers money. And because one traumatized child is one too many.
All children deserve a life full of peace, love and joy- during the holidays, and the rest of the year.
