Child Abuse: A Generational Plague
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
- Matthew 5:4
Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year more than millions of children are abused tortured & often murdered. Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.

Help us raise needed funds to support survivors of #ChildAbuse #ChildTrafficking and #Bullying through the #StartARyot Challenge!
The UnChained Project, part of Ark of Hope for Children, is mobilizing advocates in their states & regions to reach out to, listen to and support survivors young & old. This is an international movement that believes no survivor should stand alone! Through support & volunteerism let's show them a tidal wave of love is coming to their doorstep. Here's what we are doing:
#1 Using www.RemovingChains.org, our volunteer driven online live chat survivor support network is our first avenue; safe, online and anonymous listening. Multiple chat rooms offering group or one-on-one chat bring hope and life change. It is built but needs much more support to serve the masses.
#2 Localized support networks carry the torch of light & love to their part of the world. From awareness drives to localized support groups leading an ongoing mission of love.
#3 Help Ark of Hope build start safe home(s) in northern Florida for rescued child trafficking victims. Rescuing is great but not enough homes leaves them in their state of trauma in foster care, juvenile detention, or back to homelessness. How many homes can be provided is up to all of us!
As a No Survivor Stands Alone team leader, we will arrange for you to receive one of our brand new, yet to be released t-shirts once you raise $25. But the biggest news is you can win prizes that could include all access VIP tickets to see Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder & Kings of Leon live in Central Park, NYC.
The time for embracing all survivors of these abuses is now! Help them come out of the dark to within a movement of compassion that helps them safely and lovingly break their silence, break through their pain and build new lives of Hope through your efforts and the many loving volunteers with with Ark of Hope for Children.
