In honor of Child Abuse Prevention month we are thrilled to have joined forces with incredible partners and artists for our ‘Free to Dream’ event on April 30th 2019, an evening benefiting the Child Safety Pledge.
1 in 10 children will be victims of childhood sexual abuse before their 18th birthdays, facing lifelong repercussions on their social and emotional well being. But our culture is changing. Sexual abuse has taken center stage in the public discourse, providing an opportunity to end the silence and protect the most vulnerable amongst us - our children. Together, we can keep more children safe.
Child Safety Pledge's mission is to empower youth-serving organizations, funders, and families to take charge in preventing child sexual abuse. Together we are building a culture of accountability, transparency, and awareness around child safety by ensuring every organization that works with children adheres to the highest possible standards of child sexual abuse prevention and response. By doing so, our goal is to lower the number of children who become victims.
The "Free to Dream" event will be an evening of art, music, and love featuring an intimate look at the IRC and their significant impact in the life of the many children who thanks to them, and with your support of the organization, have the opportunity to not only rebuild the lives they left behind, but to pursue their dreams without fear.
Our goal is to raise awareness and funds for this urgent cause by creating a wonderful evening and the opportunity for our guests and donors to learn first hand from the organization leaders about their mission, impact and how we can all get involved.
Whether you are attending the event or supporting the cause from afar we encourage your donation and help in reaching our goal. 100% of the donations go directly to the Child Safety pledge and are tax deductible when you use this portal. Your donations will contribute to the Child Safety Pledge's efforts.
