So here we are. Our filing with the IRS is submitted for Silence Hurts Foundation as a 501c3 Nonprofit organization! Thank you to Yippiekiyay for helping the process. They can be found at heroes.do if you need to set up a nonprrofit. The first day of moving forward with this project of reaching out to help save children and families from the nightmare of child abuse. I am eager and looking forward to presenting information and tools to help families protect their children from abuse, and also providing avenues of direction for those that unfortunately have already suffered abuse.
My mission is to encourage everyone to speak out to someone, anyone, about any abuse they know of that is happening to a child or that has even happened to them when they w ere a child. It's the silence that hurts. Speaking out about it does wonders. When truth is told and revealed, it is always a good thing!
To quote a good friend of mine with 499silent.org,
"A wound doesn't heal unless it's addressed, neither does child abuse."
