Being a survivor of clergy sexual abuse and having my own child victimized by a peer, I know first hand the emotional and spiritual damage this causes. I am grateful I finally had the courage to come forward (although many years later), which resulted in this priest being permanently removed from his ministry and eventually defrocked.

I actually didn't know about PEI Kids until my daughter and her friends decided to raise awareness on child abuse by starting a fundraiser at school. The girls raised over $80 by making bracelets and selling them during lunch. The school helped identify PEI KIds as an organization to donate what they raised.

I am now an active volunteer and supporter of this organization and fortunate to finally have a voice and opportunity to put my experiences to good use and hopefully help prevent this from happening to anyone else. There is nothing more important than protecting our kids and making sure parents are aware of the warning signs and behaviors of a predator.
