BENEFITING: STOP THE SILENCE STOP CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE INC
Hi. Welcome to my fundraising site to benefit the organization Stop the Silence. I'm an international public health specialist. In 2000, I received some information about child sexual abuse and I started reading. I learned about the numbers of girls (more than one out of three) and boys (about one in every six) affected by child sexual abuse, and the impact that it had on their lives - as children and adults. And, I got captured by the issue. A small team started putting together programming to address awareness, prevention and healing needs in 2002. We incorporated the organization in 2004 as Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. to address this largely silent epidemic. For over ten years, we've been conducting creative programming with wide reach and high impact through media, training, educational outreach, programs for teens and children, their parents and communities. Check out our website and programs at www.stopcsa.org. We've been funded by the U.S. government, foundations, and corporate groups - but a large amount of the work that we do is funded by people like YOU! I/we are asking for YOUR help. Whatever you can give. It will go a very long way! If we all do a little, we can do a lot. We have to - for the sake of the children, adult survivors, and society at large. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
