Next week begins April Prevention Month.
This is a NATIONAL awareness/prevention month for child abuse and sexual assault.
Even if you don’t have children, this epidemic directly affects you. Someone you work with, go to school or church with may have emotional, physical, health, or psychological issues that affect their ability to function “normally”…the ROOT cause of many of these issues is from child sexual abuse. Your tax dollars pay approx $210,000 PER PERSON for gov’t assistance and programs that help these people through life. There are more than 39MILLION survivors, and 1 in 10 children are sexually abused by their 18th birthday.
Please get involved in some way during April, whether you sign up for our Stewards of Children training on April 19th or schedule one at your office, come to a Community Awareness Meeting, volunteer, or provide financial support.
You could also purchase and/or help us sell P.E.A.R.L.S. Jewelry to raise funds for us to pay for counseling/support for survivors and caregivers as well as other administrative costs.
Please see the attached posters. We would be especially grateful if you would SHARE them with your friends, business partners, family, church, etc. to help us raise awareness and get more people involved.
Thank you for your care and concern for OUR children- OUR FUTURE LEADERS!
