National Be Someone Day
About National Be Someone Day
When is National Be Someone Day? This special day is always observed on July 21
Today is all about making a difference in the life of a vulnerable child. Today is National Be Someone Day, a July 21 special day. This day is all about protecting children.
According to Project Harmony, the organization that created this day, the goal is to end child abuse and neglect. The organization poses a challenge to each and every one of us. It’s the ten-second challenge. You are challenged to take 10 seconds out of your day, today and every day, to make a difference in the life of a child. Use those ten seconds to heighten awareness of potential child abuse and neglect. And, if you see abuse or neglect, do something about it. Report what you see and know to authorities who can help the child. Unfortunately, child abuse and neglect is so common, that you very well could find it during those ten seconds.
It is not recommended that you directly confront the abuser. Rather, contact the police or a child advocacy organization. They will take it from there.
There are five steps to identifying and reporting child abuse and neglect:
- Learn the facts.
- Minimize potential opportunity for it to occur.
- Talk about it.
- Know the signs.
- React responsibly.
We encourage you to be someone today. Be a lifesaver to a child.
