Measuring Success for CSA Awareness Thursday, May 21, 2015

 

We cannot scientifically measure how successful our April Child Abuse Awareness campaign was. We can’t know how many children will be protected because their parent discussed our “what if” questions at the dinnertable. Or how many parents are utilizing tools they found on our website or feel empowered after watching our children’s book online with their kids.

But we CAN celebrate that parents viewed and shared our “conversation starter” videos on social media. And that because of you, more people learned about Rise and Shine Movement and our sexual abuse prevention message.

We can cheer and applaud that because of your generosity 212 stuffed animals will be donated by Rise and Shine Movement this year to Philadelphia Children’s Alliance to comfort children who have disclosed sexual abuse.

We hope you feel more educated and empowered to increase the communication about sexual abuse in your home and with the people in your community.

Rise and Shine Movement is excited to give parents the tools they need to build a bridge of communication with their children. By partnering together we believe we can protect more kids!

So please continue your efforts on social media letting others know about the importance of talking to kids about sexual abuse prevention and if you feel so led, let them know about the work we are doing here at Rise and Shine Movement.

We wave good-bye to April and CSA awareness month, but we have a lot of exciting things coming in the year ahead. Keep updated by following us on social media or by signing up for our quarterly newsletter.


We’d like to give a BIG thank you to some special people (authors, bloggers, influencers) who share a passion for protecting kids and who committed to helping us in April by sharing our awareness message with others. Help us thank them by learning more about them via their websites. A virtual hug and shout out to all of them!
