December 1st - Event
Simulcast: There is no simulcast planned for this year's event. However, we are asking local stations and supporters to create their own local events to support the awareness of child abuse.
Lunch hour support: During lunch hour we are asking each business person around our nation to show your support, to prevent child abuse, by donating just one minute of silence during your lunchtime to honor victims and survivors of child abuse. We ask that radio stations will help remind the work force and listeners to show their support in this way. Mint green ribbons may also be made and worn in support of this day.
One station's desert balloon launch (with glow sticks)
created quite a memorable nightime impact
Evening Vigils: That evening, we are asking for the support of individuals, local organizations churches and synagogues, to meet for evening vigils. Flashlight or candlelight vigils are a powerful way to focus on the problem of child abuse. Local advocates and politicians may take this opportunity to speak on behalf of adult SURVIVORS of child abuse and to promote further healing. We ask that radio stations will help remind listeners to stop by one of the local vigils (possibly provide a brief list or organized events) to pay their respect. Encourage listeners to carry their portable radios to stay tuned during this time (if your station will be carrying a live feed or be playing songs that support this theme). Encourage local television station (affiliates) to show up and cover this event (everybody wins).
Radio Stations: please email us the day after your event and let us know what was accomplished by your station and area so we can tell people worldwide about results of this day in hundreds of cities. Thank you.
