What can you do to help? At The CARE Center, we want to raise awareness, so we need you to use the power of social media to post photos on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles, wearing blue and advocating against child abuse.
It’s simple, take your photo, tag us, and use #braverygoesblue.
We’ll be right along beside you, going blue for all of April.
Child abuse is a significant problem here in Oklahoma. In fact, 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys in Oklahoma County will be abused before their 18th birthday. Put that into the context of kids on an average school bus—approximately 18 girls and 11 boys on a single bus will have suffered some level of abuse.
How do we begin to fix a problem that staggering? Start with increasing awareness. Once you’ve opened your eyes to the problem, it’s amazing what you see. But you can be part of the solution! We’re need YOU, our local advocates to stand up for children and lead them to us at The CARE Center. April presents a special opportunity for the community to lend a hand—and it’s as simple as a selfie.
Be brave, go bold and wear blue!
