Three in ten children with intellectual differences are sexually abused
If hearing this sad reality makes you want to help, you’re in the right place.
The fact of the matter is this: children with intellectual or physical disabilities are far more vulnerable to abuse. Protecting them from abuse poses unique challenges – and their caretakers, coaches, friends and mentors want to know what to do if they suspect abuse.
Think of it this way. A Special Olympics basketball game has 10 kids on the court at a time. On average 3 of the children will be sexually abused. Because your donation will be matched, you can protect all 10 of those children for just $5.
Your special year-end gift to the Beau Biden Foundation will unlock a completely new, first-of-its-kind training. A training that folks who love, care for and coach children with intellectual differences desperately want.
These kids need a hero. Someone like you. Someone to step up and make a donation – whatever amount makes sense to you. The only way we meet this challenge is with your help.
Your $20 donation today will be matched – doubled – and you will protect 40 vulnerable children from abuse.
Here’s what your special year-end gift will do.
Your gift to the Beau Biden Foundation will put valuable resources in the hands of those who care for children and young adults with intellectual and physical differences.
1. Coaches will know what to do and who to call when they suspect a child is being abused
2. Teachers, classroom aides, bus drivers will know how to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse
3. Parents will take comfort in knowing the people the trust to care for their children have the tools they need to protect children and confront abuse
You can be a hero.
Your $20 today will immediately be put to work creating something that’s never been done before. Because of a generous match, every $20 gift will protect 40 children.
