Make a Difference in the Life of a Child: Text-to-Donate Today!

Posted by mGive Team on Apr 12, 2011 7:13:00 AM

April is National Child Abuse Awareness month. The Child Welfare Information Gateway provides an extensive outline of the history of this advocacy month. The first official Federal child protection legislation, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA), was passed in 1974. In the early 1980’s, legislation further recognized the need for child abuse prevention by declaring a Child Abuse Awareness week in June; shortly after, that week was adapted to encompass the entire month of April.

This month is dedicated to recognizing and advocating for those who are affected by child abuse. Many organizations are dedicated to this initiative year-round, but this month raises awareness for those who are not necessarily directly impacted by this cause in their daily lives so that they may assist those in need.

The table below highlights a few of the organizations you can support by simply texting in a donation. Your donations will help to raise awareness and create strong communities to support children and their families. After you confirm your mobile gift with YES, when prompted, please reply with YES again to receive exclusive mobile news from the organization on how your gift is making a difference.
