April is child abuse awareness month!

Suggestions on what we might do to raise abuse awareness in our local communities

•  Go by local abuse organizations and drop off information about silentlambs and ask if they would like to have a video for their library. Offer to bring by copies of silentlambs brochures that are printable off the website.

•  Find out what events are going to be talking place in the local community such as walks or other gatherings and wear a silentlambs t-shirt and bring video and brochures to distribute or loan out to those interested in reviewing.

•  “Friendly” honk when you drive by a Kingdom Hall during the month of April.

•  Join your local rape abuse hotline or shelter and participate in their education programs to be accredited to volunteer and offer assistance to other abuse survivors.

•  Wear a silentlambs pin where ever you go and explain to those who see it what it stands for.
