BENEFITING: Blue Ribbon Foundation
A child is physically abused every ten seconds. One in five girls are sexually abused at some point in their life. These children could be our sons, daughters, friends, students, sisters, or brothers. By donating to the Blue Ribbon campaign, you can help prevent children from becoming victims, and help victims recover and find a safer home. Most people that report suspicions of abuse have been worried about a child for over a month. It could be nothing, but it could be something. We need to teach children that being physically, emotionally, or sexually abused is not normal, and it never something they deserve. Blue Ribbon helps prevent abuse by helping families learn to communicate in a healthy way, and teach children they are never alone. We can end this cycle of sadness and fear by working together to save the youth of our world. Most people think they would know if a child in their life was being abused, but they are wrong. Abuse happens frequently, and it happens behind closed doors. Abusers are not always strange men that lure children in, abusers can be mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, or teachers. If we are not aware of this issue, we will be raising a generation of broken children.
