Before we say goodbye to July, we want to fill you in on our work this past month and some of the important events and opportunities we have coming up.
Make sure you read what we’ve been up to so you can continue to help advance our mission of ending child abuse.
Amazon Smile Campaign – The Beau Biden Foundation is partnering with Amazon to let supporters donate while they shop. We’re now one of one million nonprofits listed on Amazon Prime. When you log on to Amazon Smile and select the Beau Biden Foundation, .05% of your purchase price will go to the Foundation. These small donations add up, so make sure you visit Amazon Smile before you shop.
Delaware National Guard Youth Foundation – We spent the day with over 100 kids at Camp Colwell, a summer camp sponsored by the Delaware National Guard Youth Foundation for children of Military families. Beau loved the National Guard, and serving as a sponsor by providing trainings for the children and adults of the Guard is so important to the Beau Biden Foundation.
Newark Safe Kids Camp – We teamed up with the Newark Parks and Recreation Department for its annual Safe Kids Camp. Children who attended had a series of lessons on how to stay safe in a variety of situations. The Beau Biden Foundation was there to teach campers about internet safety, and the Newark Fire Department followed it up with a presentation on fire safety. You can read more here.
2017 Georgetown Junior Police Academy – The Foundation met with 25 Georgetown Jr. Police Academy cadets. We gave a presentation to the cadets on leadership and ways to be a responsible citizen in the digital space. We were honored to be able to teach these future leaders the importance of promoting internet safety. Learn more here.
Wilmington Blue Rocks – Don’t forget to come to the ballpark on August 20th for Child Protection Day at the Wilmington Blue Rocks game. Our staff will be on-hand with special guests to assist with Child ID Kits and pass out Beau Biden Foundation swag.
