Using the power of social media on November 28th to help end child abuse.

The Child Center, Inc., the child advocacy center for Northeast Missouri, will take part in #GivingTuesday, the global movement driven by social media and the generosity of people around the world. On November 28, supporters can make an online donation to The Child Center, Inc., then encourage their social media networks to give, and share the personal stories behind those gifts.

#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Donations made during #GivingTuesday will be used to support the amazingly resilient children who are brave enough to tell their experience and provide them with a safe, secure, child-friendly environment in which to share.

The Child Center is the only child advocacy center (CAC) in 14 counties of northeast Missouri serving young victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and children who witness violence.  Children participate in forensic interviews, advocacy, mental health therapy, and school and community-based prevention education programs. The primary goal is to ensure that children disclosing abuse are not further victimized by the intervention systems designed to protect them.

The Child Center, Inc encourages the community to get involved in their initiative by visiting and clicking on the #GivingTuesday link or by calling Linda Buschman at 636-332-0899 to make a donation.
