The Children’s Assessment Center announced the GiveUr6 campaign on Wednesday, June 22nd at The Dunlavy.
GiveUr6 is designed to encourage people to be a part of the solution to end the sexual abuse of children. It is an opportunity for people to contribute to programs that protect and heal victims of child sexual abuse, a trauma that effects the entire community and does not discriminate between race, gender, or socioeconomic status. The campaign is centered on the idea that people easily spend $6 on indulgences they do not think twice about, such as buying a latte in the morning or ordering dessert after dinner. It is estimated that 1 in 4 girl and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18.
The CAC provides services to approximately 5,000 local victims of child sexual abuse and their families every year. Our goal is to get one million people to donate $6! The money raised will help educate and heal children victims of sexual abuse and their families. To donate, go to www.GiveUr6.com.
