THE STORY:

CAPP depends on life-sized Kids on the Block puppets to educate children through their effective Child Safety Workshop. Help us raise $10,000 on Crowdrise to fund 3 sets of new puppets, which will be used to teach kids how to recognize, resist and report physical & sexual abuse.

Click the big DONATE button or go one step further and help us fundraise by clicking the JOIN THE TEAM button. You'll get your own fundraising page to share with all your amazing family and friends.

Since 1986, CAPP has educated more than 410,000 New York City children on their right to be safe from abuse. For children that are experiencing abuse, this program can be the first step to getting help. For thousands of others, it ensures understanding of their right to be safe, their right to speak up and their right to a childhood that is free from abuse.

The power of puppets comes from the ability to engage children on an emotional and educational level, making the prevention message more effective than standard presentations. Children identify strongly with the puppets and therefore feel safe to talk about their real life situations. That feeling of safety is especially important for abuse victims, who are isolated by their shame or threats of retribution from the abuser.

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be physically or sexually abused before the age of 18. Alarmingly, more than 80% of all child abuse cases go unreported.  In 90% of abuse cases, the perpetrator is known to the child. 

The challenge before us is to raise $10,000 by September, the start of the new school year, to purchase 3 sets of new puppets - help us reach that goal!

Together, we can change children’s lives forever.

 

Thank you for your support!
