KidSafe Foundation is a great foundation with an amazing purpose. I found out about this organization through Volunteer Match.com and since then I have been volunteering my time to continue to help towards their mission. A world where empowered children become powerful adults is more of what we need and the KidSafe Foundation is at the forefront of making it happen!

Kid Safe has come to my 2nd Grade classroom for the past 3 years. The experience and information is priceless. The students role-play tough, real-life situations. The program teaches age-appropriate ways for the children to express themselves in "sticky" situations. Following the program I hear students confidently expressing themselves to each other. Te KidSafe representatives have been very knowledgeable and eager to work with the children. I look forward to the program again this year!

I have known KidSafe well for four years. This is an organization that continues to grow and to carefully analyze its programs, seeking to make impactful improvements in the educational opportunities it offers to protect and empower children to stay safe from abuse. KidSafe's straightforward education for parents, teachers, caregivers, coaches and others who touch the lives of our kids is invaluable and designed as a fitting complement to the programs designed for children. I'm proud to advocate for KidSafe.

I am a former summer camp director. I recently moved to Florida and having previously volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia, I was looking for a child advocate non-profit organization where I could get involved. The KidSafe Foundation has been all I hoped for and much more. For ten years they have been bringing the issue of sexual abuse prevention to the scholastic community. They have been doing a remarkable job in providing outstanding on-line and in -person training to teachers, parents, volunteers and children, having produced two award winning books for young kids. KidSafe is now working American summer camps and a major International staffing company to bring the same caliber of training to summer camp staff. Both International and American staff can participate in the new program, which will be rolled out in September. This will help insure a safer camp community for the millions of children who attend summer camp each year. I look forward to many more years of volunteering with KidSafe. They are without question, a top notch foundation.

I first learned of KidSafe when my kids were young and I came across the curriculum, which impressed me. Later, our company became a sponsor of KidSafe's major fundraiser and I served on the planning committee. I am now co-chairing the fundraiser and am thrilled to support this amazing cause.

What could be more important than keeping our children safe? KidSafe does incredible work to help provide children with a voice and gives them the tools to access help. KidSafe also provides adults with the training to be able to recognize abuse and get children the help that they need.

Every child should receive this program and every adult needs to know how to keep their children safe. All to often we pay attention and react to a problem - more money needs to go to prevention programs like KidSafe! Child sexual abuse is an epidemic that can be prevented with education.

KidSafe Foundation is an amazing organization. They are extremely passionate about keeping children safe and for 10 years they have been providing education to children to empower them with skills and tools to keep themselves safe. But they do not leave the burden to the children to keep themselves safe...they also train all adults on how to recognize, respond and report child abuse. The goal is to make adults the first line of defense in a child's safety. KidSafe is a great nonprofit.

I first met the people at KidSafe when my kids were in elementary school, they came to present their program. It is a great program and teaches the kids in a way they can understand. My kids are now in High School and still use lessons learned.

KidSafe Foundation provides our children with education and tools to help them keep safe. My children went through the program and even though they were much younger at the time, my now high school and college children still remember what "Circle of Safe Adults" mean and who are in their "Circle of Safe Adults". It's a great organization making a difference in our community.

Not one day goes by where the news is filled with heart breaking stores about a child abuse case. People ask/say: how did we miss the signs, why was nothing said, didn't know who to turn to, was afraid etc... KidSafe programs are about keeping children safe by teaching prevention, recognizing those signs. It's a program that needs to be made available to all children, educators and parent to keep our children safe.

I first heard about KidSafe 9 years ago when they approached the PTA for the school my children attended. I was impressed with their program and how they taught the kids as well as educating the parents. I recommended the program be offered every year at the school and to this day the KidSafe program is taught to the children and parents of the school.

Two of my grandchildren were in a pre-K class that participated in the KidSafe for Kids program. They came home each week from the class talking enthusiastically about what they had learned - beyond important information made fun by the KidSafe approach to safety education. That was two years ago and the kids still use the vocabulary they were taught by the KidSafe instructor. I can't speak highly enough about KidSafe. I know my grandchildren are more safe now because of the education they received from KidSafe.

Four of my five young grandchildren have taken part in the KidSafe for Kids program in their schools, and they read the KidSafe books at home. I can't praise this program enough. The kids often use the KidSafe "language of safety" with each other, and their friends. It's become a part of their lives. I have no doubt they are safer because of it. Thank you KidSafe.

I am a professional in the field. I highly recommend KidSafe Foundation and the education programs they provide to children, parents, teachers and the health care workforce to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying and online exploitation. KidSafe education programs should be mandated in every elementary school.

I am a donor and volunteer for the KidSafe Foundation. I believe in their mission to provide education to protect children from child abuse, bullying and online exploitation. It is important that other donors realize the great importance of preventing abuse BEFORE it begins and quality education programs like KidSafe should start in early childhood. I appreciate their use of a 3 tier approach to protecting children - teaching children, parents and professionals working with children. This is a great model for keeping children safe.

I am a long time donor to KidSafe Foundation. Although I support many charities - KidSafe is one of my favorites. I believe not enough is done to prevent trauma to children and the programs KidSafe provides to children, parents, teachers and professionals is not only a quality program but educates children through fun not fear and provides life skills for adults that are easy to incorporate into everyday parenting. I highly recommend this nonprofit for anyone wanting to protect children from trauma.

KidSafe taught my boys safety and how to protect themselves in all kinds of situations. They learned their body is their own, at a young age, as KidSafe came into their pre-school and elementary school. I know, as a parent, I was very relieved and comfortable knowing that my children learned, as much as they did, from KidSafe. This is an amazing organization that deserves all the funding they can get! It is used to keep KidSafe!!!

I have been fortunate to know about KidSafe Foundations services and resources for many years. As a PTA leader in South Florida I have been fortunate to hear from many of our units firsthand how useful and enlightening their members have found the KidSafe programs for both students and parents. They have also participated in 2 Florida PTA statewide Health summits to educate and encourage PTA leaders across the state on how they can help raise awareness about child sexual abuse. I am now an active volunteer with the Kidsafe and have seen firsthand how hard Sally, Cherie and Team are working to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying and internet dangers.

I first heard Sally and Cherie speak back in 2004 when I was PTA President at my children's school. I knew then and there that what they had to say, and the knowledge that they had to share was something our parents needed to hear and our children needed to participate in. The following year we brought KidSafe in to the school for a parent lecture. After hearing what Sally and Cherie had to say, parents were volunteering to fund the program in their children's classrooms, as well as entire grades. I am happy to say that 10+ years later, after educating and empowering hundreds , KidSafe continues to educate children and parents alike!
