Families Helping Families - A fundraiser for B.A.B.E.S. Child Abuse Prevention Program

We believe that every child counts. Do you? We are a group of young professionals from the Leadership Fox Cities program who believe that each child's life is precious. We recognize that when parents receive the support they need to be the best parents they can be, their children thrive and so does our community. Unfortunately, not every parent has a strong support system. COVID-19 has only added to the economic, social and emotional stress of parents, which can put children at risk.

That's why were are teaming up with Bard Media on this virtual campaign to support the mission of B.A.B.E.S. Child Abuse Prevention Program, a 501(c)3 non-profit, committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect by providing safe, no-cost respite care, educational support and services, care packages, diapers and counseling to young families. Located on Wisconsin Avenue in Appleton, B.A.B.E.S. serves low-income parents up to the age of 27 from around the Fox Cities.

Today's families include parents, step-parents, grandparents, siblings, step-siblings, etc. as role models in children's lives. For some families, B.A.B.E.S. is an extension of their family unit, as you will hear in the parent testimonials in videos we will share during this campaign. We are asking you and your family to join us in our goal to raise $10,000 by September 8, 2020 to help B.A.B.E.S. continue its critical mission.

During the COVID-19 crisis, B.A.B.E.S. continues to be there for families despite additional challenges such as increased costs of cleaning and personal protective equipment and redesigning programs for distancing to keep staff and families safe. We invite you to make a monetary donation to B.A.B.E.S. in the amount that is right for you to help keep these families strong with the resources B.A.B.E.S. provides.

It takes a village to raise a child, and B.A.B.E.S. is part of that village for many families in the community. You are invited to be a part of that village too.

From our families to yours, THANK YOU!
