#GivingTuesdayNow: $31 saves 31 lives
Schools are closed. Children are cut off from their support networks. You can protect a child by training her teacher to recognize abuse through a webcam.

Teachers are worried about their students sheltering in place – perhaps dangerous places. They only see students for a few hours a week – in a virtual classroom. Educators want to know how to recognize abuse through a webcam. Your gift today (it will be doubled) will give a teacher the knowledge they desperately need to recognize abuse through a webcam. Please make a gift at https://www.beaubidenfoundation.org/givingtuesdaynow/.

Our Mission ~ We believe that child abuse can be prevented through effectively educating adults and children, developing the next generation of child welfare professionals and strengthening child protection laws around the country.
  • We believe, as Beau did, that no child should be threatened by a predator – either an adult or a peer – and that child abuse is preventable. 
  • We believe the best way to prevent child abuse is to educate adults and children. 6 in 10 victims never report their abuse.
  • We believe the time is now to identify and train the next generation of child welfare professionals. 6,500 adults trained in Stewards of Children.
  • We believe strengthening national child protection laws is an urgent, attainable goal. 16 partners in our Shield of Protection Initiative.
Beau believed in our better angels. He knew the first lines of defense for a child who is bullied are that child’s peers. He knew every child was capable of courage, but that courage without confidence does not inspire action. We will work in schools to teach children skills and to give them tools and procedures that result in the confidence to report, and stop, bullying.
Testimonial:
“We have seen the progress that can be made when a society commits to shining a bright light on a crime like domestic violence, and we are seeing the beginning of what can be accomplished if we continue shining that bright light on child abuse. As adults, we have a legal and moral obligation to stand up and speak out for children who are being abused. These children cannot speak for themselves.” — Beau Biden
