“Abuse is a crime of isolation. Children are alone at home isolated and not being able to be seen by anybody else that might be able to recognize concerns.”
– Dr. Jamye Coffman, Cook Children’s Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect
Right now, there is a child, John, sheltering in place with his family – including his abusive uncle. Will you be one of the 162 generous people we need to step up and stop the abuse of a child like John every day this month? By making a gift to the Foundation on #GivingTuesdayNow, you can do just that.
Here’s how it works. We kicked off a new initiative, #ProtectAChildADayInMay last week to help children like John. Your $31 Giving Tuesday Now gift will be matched – doubled – by an incredibly generous donor.
Here’s what your gift will do. John’s math teacher is worried about him. They only see each other for a few hours a week – in a virtual classroom.
Educators want to know how to recognize abuse through a webcam. And your gift today (remember, it will be doubled) will give John’s math teacher and hundreds more the knowledge they desperately need.
Here’s why your gift is so urgently needed. The health crisis has closed schools across the country, and instances of child abuse are going unreported. There are millions of kids cut off from their support networks. By making a gift today, you will be shielding a child like John from abuse today, tomorrow, Thursday, and every day for the rest of the month.
Your gift today to the Beau Biden Foundation will be matched dollar for dollar – doubled – by an equally generous donor.
Yes, I want to make a secure gift – which will be doubled – and protect one child every day this month.
