1 in 5!
That is the number of kids who are abused before their 18th birthday. Guys, that is not acceptable!! My incredible co-workers at Embrace Families work with these kids and see the effects of trauma every single day.
This campaign is a fun way to address a very real and very serious issue by sparking healing conversation for both children and adults.
While you might not work in this field you CAN help make a difference by donating so that we can provide services to kids who need it the most.
Please help me spread awareness and raise money this (and every) April.
Some of you might be the 1 in 5, or know someone who is. I encourage you to seek the help that you need. Know that it was not your fault, you aren't alone and there are people who care!!
Over the past 3 years, the MANicure MovementSM has evolved from a creative awareness campaign to an active fundraiser aimed to help polish off child abuse.
