I have worked as a volunteer for more than 30 years with the American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence.

One of the great things about the American Campaign is that everyone on the Board of Directors and everyone in leadership as officers and as staff are unpaid volunteers who have longstanding professional experience in the prevention of all forms of family violence - child abuse and neglect, domestic violence (spouse/partner abuse), and elder abuse and neglect.

The American Campaign is a nonprofit U.S. 501(c)(3) corporation that receives no government contracts, grants or funding of any kind. It is supported by individuals through public and private sector workplace campaigns and foundation contributions.

The volunteer focus of the American Campaign assures you that your financial support provides greater direct services to family violence victims with a minimum of overhead for management and fundraising.

My Giving Story……

I have several charities that are close to my heart, however American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence is the charity I am most fond of. ( http://nccafv.org )

My reason for supporting this organization is my son Adarian. When he was just 2 years old he was a victim of child abuse. He suffered blunt force trauma to his head & lacerations to his liver and pancreas from a man who my husband and I had known for well over 10 years.

Adarian was clinically pronounced brain dead less than 48 hours after he sustained his injuries, because he lacked oxygen at some point during infliction. His precious innocent life was cut short because of someone else’s selfish cruel hands.

We can no longer share the love we have for Adarian physically, BUT WE ALL can show our support and love to thousands of other innocent children by donating to help prevent something like this from happening again!!! Do you accept my challenge???

Adarian would be turning 13 years old this month on Oct. 30th. He was so full of life and a loving, happy child and his family misses him dearly. He was taken from his older sister and brother, but since his passing I have been blessed with four more beautiful healthy children -- including a beautiful, healthy baby boy in May of this year.

This is the first time I’m actually sharing my story because it’s hard talking about, but sometimes talking and sharing our stories brings out our inner strength, to reflect our outer strength.

What’s your story?

Thank You,
Elizabeth D.
