CHILDHELP NATIONAL DAY OF HOPE
During National Child Abuse Prevention Month the first Wednesday of April has been dedicated to a Childhelp National Day of Hope. Everyone across the country is asked to make a life-long commitment to joining the fight to end child abuse and neglect.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Lighting a 5 wick candle and observing a 5-minute silence represents the approximately 5 children who die every day as a result of abuse in the United States. Fight to end child abuse and use #ChildhelpNationalDayOfHope to post on social media.
Childhelp National Day of Hope was designated by a Congressional resolution in 2000. Childhelp.org was founded by Yvonne Fedderson and Sara O’Meara who worked to bring this day and the victims it honors to light.
There are over 1,200 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
