I support the KidSafe Foundation because I believe in it's mission to educate children and adults to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying and internet dangers. The statistics are staggering...1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually exploited before the age of 18 - but 95% of abuse and exploitation of children is preventable with education. Every child and every adult should have KidSafe!
As the parent of older children, I can tell you that the KidSafe Foundation is a wonderful program that should be in all schools, day care, and after school programs. Sally and Cherie provide the appropriate tools to help keep all children safe. Their approach appeals to kids on their levels and also appeals to the adults(parents, teachers, etc) on their levels. The are able to speak and demonstrate about important and serious information in an interactive and educational way. In addition, KidSafe Foundation has received tremendous support from the surrounding community. It's a program that should be on a national scale!
After hearing about KidSafe Foundation at a back-to-school event, I re-connected with this non-profit organization and became a volunteer. Now, as a member of KidSafe's planning committee for their upcoming Gala fundraiser, I have not only witnessed the amazing dedication and willingness of every Committee member to ensure a successful event, but I feel truly honored to be assisting such a great, motivated and empassioned group who believe in protecting children, raising awareness on safety precautions and advocacy, and more. Through their seminar programs and offering critical educational tips, founders Cherie and Sally have developed a wonderful non-profit organization that has - in only 4 years since its inception - truly impacted the communities in and around South Florida!
Both of my children have gone through the KidSafe Foundation program. As recently as this week it has made a major positive impact on our family, as one of my children reported something to my wife and I, that I think other children would not have. I am proud to be on the Board of this organization and I look forward to growing our reach and educating parents and their children about real world child safety issues.
Both my children have gone through the KidSafe program and I have proudly served on its Board since its inception. I cannot say enough positive things about Cheri Benjoseph and Sally Berenzweig, the programs founders and Executive Directors. Their personal belief in keeping our children safe is what drives KidSafe. In today's crazy world, it is reassuring to know that KidSafe is there, trying to educate, inform and protect not only our children, but our parents an teachers as well! I highly recommend this organization and hope you will consider getting involved.
It is both a privilege and honor to be part of such an amazing organization. Through the years I have worked with several Non Profit organizations, all have had a great mission, but not all have had such passionate and dedicated staff and board. Each individual that works for, is on the board or volunteers for this organization is 100% committed to educating the community and sharing the mission.
Both of my children has been students of the KidSafe Foundation Pre-K program. Years later, my kids remember the valuable lessons that were shared in the 8 week curriculum. Both kids loved reading the KidSafe books to each other. I can't say enough good things about how important it is to teach your children the language of safety at a young age. The KidSafe teachers did an incredible job with the kids. In addition, I will never forget the lessons I learned as a parent at the KidSafe Parent Night. Thank you!
