Child abuse happens everywhere. Here are some tips from the website of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children in the United Kingdom describing how each of us can help stop or prevent abuse. Yes, we are a world away from there. But if a child discloses abuse to you, this is what to do, right here, in our own communities.
Thank you to all of our attendees, sponsors, donors, and volunteers. We had a fantastic evening at Celebrate the Children and we hope you did too. We could not have done it with out all of your help. We will post how much we raised soon.
