Help us Stop the Hurt Before it Starts

There are an estimated 42 million survivors of child sexual abuse in
America today with one-third under age 18. Victims of child sexual abuse
are at greater risk than their peers for psychological, social and physical
problems. Prevention of child sexual abuse is imperative.

That is why MassKids continues to educate parents, schools, youth
organizations and the public about child sexual abuse and ways to prevent
it through our [1]Enough Abuse Campaign, to stop the hurt before it starts.

While the #MeToo movement spread awareness and triggered new reports of
sexual assaults of adults in the workplace, MassKids' focus is on
effectively preventing sexual assaults
against children in their "workplaces," that is, in the places where they
live and learn and play, because #kidstoo experience sexual abuse.

Hundreds of well-known people from sports, entertainment and music have
publicly revealed their own experiences of childhood sexual abuse. Many
high profile cases, from the abuse by Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky,
U.S.A. Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nasser, rapper R. Kelley, financier
Jerry Epstein, and others have also continued to heighten awareness about
child sexual abuse.

You may have wondered- "What can I do to stop these terrible acts from ever
happening?" If you did, we encourage you to[2] support MassKids this
Holiday Season and help us build the movement to ensure each child's right
to a safe and healthy childhood—one free from the devastating and life-long
impact of child sexual abuse.


Your donation will ensure that our prevention education, policy and
advocacy work reaches more families, schools, youth organizations, and
communities to prevent sexual abuse from ever occurring.

MassKids is making progress on this difficult front - [4]([5]click here to
read more about our work in 2019 in our fall newsletter[6]) - but we need
your support to reach our goals for more children and families in 2020. We
encourage you to choose MassKids as your priority charity this Holiday
season and make a personally significant gift to support our cutting-edge
work. Your tax deductible dollars go far since more than 90% of funds go
directly to support our prevention programs.

The youth chorus from Framingham schools that performed at one of our
prevention conferences said it best:

Stop the hurt before it starts. We don't need more broken hearts.

Our kids should grow up fine and free. It's up to you and me!


In 2020, we will continue to take our [8]Prevention Tour to more
Massachusetts cities and towns, training local school and youth
organization leaders about child sexual abuse prevention. We will release
our new online training course designed specifically for youth serving
organizations, and we will mobilize individuals everywhere to [9]Pledge to
Prevent child sexual abuse through specific, targeted actions. Please click
