Child maltreatment deaths in US*


Combined US military deaths during 2 wars**

Imagine if we harnessed our best thinking, resources, and passion around protecting children from abuse or neglect. How would we change their lives; and ours?

For Them:

  • Better school performance
  • Increased physical health and wellness
  • Reduced risk of mental health problems
  • Increased chance of lifelong success
  • Stability, comfort, love, and a chance for a happy childhood AND future

For Us:

  • Lower health care costs
  • Lower crime rates
  • Increased vibrancy and health of our communities
  • Healthier economy
  • Sense of purpose and meaning

Sounds like a WIN-WIN!!

We can totally do this. And you can help!
