THE STORY:

We are $7,500 short of our fundraising goal to kick off a Spanish Translation program. Can you donate $10 to help bring vital information to a wider community of parents?

For 20 years, the nonprofit Healthy Child Healthy World has ignited the movement that empowers parents to protect children from harmful chemicals. 
However, our message is currently inaccessible to many families of Latino children, who now represent one in six children in the United States. Latino children are more affected by health problems linked to environmental factors than any other group. For example, they are 60% more at risk for asthma than white children, and three times more likely to die from asthma as adults.

Many of these problems can be positively affected by simple, easy and cost-effective suggestions found in our 5 Easy Steps, such as opening windows, being careful with plastics, managing pests without pesticides and cleaning homes without chemicals. Healthy Child recommends actions that every parent can embrace—and achieve. That’s why it’s crucial that every parent can access them.

That's why we’re kicking off a campaign to translate core materials—such as our 5 Easy Steps and our “Wake Up Story” video—into Spanish. We’re also working on a tech overhaul: According to a Pew poll, 51% of Hispanics use their phones to access the Internet, compared with 46% of blacks and 33% of whites. In order to reach more families, we need to update our website with mobile-friendly, bilingual capabilities, and translate our mobile app into Spanish.

Until toxic chemicals are eliminated, Healthy Child Healthy World is an essential resource for parents to access critical, consolidated information that can help them to better protect their children, inspire healthier homes and communities.

Please help us reach more parents, so we can create a healthier world. Thank you!
