Also, translate "Day of the Child" in a brief format for possible
consideration in a logo (using baby blocks). If we feel the name works
well we may consider creating a logo for it.
HERE IS A COPY OF THE TEXT WHICH NEEDS TO BE TRANSLATED:
Please contact us if interested.
On Friday, December 1st, 2000, you can help make history, along with thousands of radio stations, media outlets, and child abuse agencies around the globe. Celebrating our 12th year, the Day of the Child vision is to raise awareness and promote healing for victims and survivors of child abuse. Change a child's life today by adding your name to "The Wall" and then get involved in your own local community using the resources we provide for you here.
Our goals continue to be:
to raise awareness by sponsoring media events that focus the world's attention on the issues of child abuse.
to provide an anonymous means for victims and survivors to acknowledge their abuse, share their stories and pursue healing.
to help provide the means for local child abuse agencies worldwide to raise funds. The unique aspect of Day of the Child is that all event donations are collected directly by the specified local and national child abuse agencies.
to provide resources for state organizations and agencies such as Police and Fire departments to raise awareness of local citizens.
to empower caring hearts the world over to accomplish what no single organization could possibly achieve on its own.
What Is It?
What is Day of the Child all about?
It's not about money.
It's about raising awareness.
Why?...if being aware doesn't solve the problem.
It can help elevate child abuse to a high profile cause.
In a day where the highly publicized subjects are still AIDS, drugs and gangs, we must also begin to place emphasis on attacking the root problem, in addition to treating its symptoms.
People must realize child abuse is a key issue. A pervasive issue. An issue which has repercussions throughout the world.
Victims must understand they're not alone. That they're not to blame.
People must understand there is help available.
Day of the Child is about healing
Help make history on Friday, December 1st, 2000, along with the participation of thousands of radio stations, media, and child abuse agencies around the globe. Please get involved today.
Add your name to "The Wall" and learn what you can do in your own local community using the resources we provide here. Most of all please spread the word.
Since 1988, Day of the Child has been hosting local, national and international events for this cause. In 1998, we are launching our biggest effort yet as we add the power of Internet technology across the globe. Imagine, a global "grass roots" event!
thousands and potentially millions of commuters during their drive to work at a time when radio listenership is highest. We need your help in asking your local radio stations to support Day of the Child by getting the word out early.
People can choose whatever level of involvement they wish when they enter their information on "The Wall". Some may want to simply pledge moral support for the millions of abuse victims while others may be more gratified to pledge a donation to their local child abuse agency. Throughout the year we will be suggesting many other ideas for raising awareness and pledges for child abuse agencies worldwide. One of the exciting things about Day of the Child is that ALL of the money pledged remains in the local city or state where your pledges originate (Where the Money Goes). Those interested in making donations to their local Child Abuse Agency or a national agency, may choose from a list of agencies registered in our database.
How Does It Work?
Day of the Child is truly a "grass-roots" effort. The power of this global event is the involvement of a large number of caring people like yourself. Through this website our hope is to provide ideas about things which have worked in the past and things others are doing-- but you along with thousands of other individuals will make it happen.
Day of the Child will notify the media and other organizations about the event but it is the heartfelt requests of individuals such as you which will demand the sort of attention that abused children of the world deserve. PLEASE, take the time to become involved. Contact the radio stations in your area. Contact the rest of the media. Stage events. Hold vigils. Use the Day of the Child logo and link to this website. Print or Download our sample pledge card and use it to collect for your local child abuse agency. Find out what others are doing. Be creative. Stretch your wings - catch the vision. Come up with ideas we never would have dreamed of. And then let us know so we can pass those ideas along to help inspire others.
Why Just One Day?
Day of the Child normally represents a single day of the year. As such it permits all people to focus intently on the issue of child abuse at a particular time. For the first time, we are focusing an entire YEAR on our cause. This year has been designated as the "Year of the Survivor". We think this is an appropriate cause and are doing everything we can to support the recognition of adult SURVIVORS of child abuse. This opportunity also allows us to let current abuse victims know they are not to blame and to make them aware that help is available and how to go about getting it. It is to be used to encourage former victims to acknowledge their experiences and to seek healing. It is to be used to enable survivors to tell their stories and share the wisdom they've gained. It is to be used to encourage parents who are struggling to cope to call and get help in their local area. It is to be used to provide a means for any would-be perpetrator to recognize the humanity of the victim and, most importantly, to seek guidance as to how to stop before committing a reprehensible and irreparable act. Finally it is to be used to provide a means for any perpetrator to acknowledge, to confess, to seek treatment and most importantly to stop hurting children.
