You are probably a little like me.
You dread what’s happening around you? You dream of improving it, especially for children? Then you’re probably also eager to stop dreading and start dreaming, then to stop dreaming and start doing. That’s probably what we both want.
We all hear of young people struggling against overgrown problems, against miseries they didn’t provoke. Like these kids, we long to resist these tired dreads. We want to help kids dream big so they can crush the long odds that keep them from doing good and great things … but what can we ordinary people do?
Safe Kids Network explores ways ordinary people–artists for now–can network together with the public to provide financial support for legitimate agencies that protect children.
Safe Kids Network is the action edge of dreaming. It’s doing real improvements.
Safe Kids Network is NOT a tax-exempt charity. You do NOT get tax-benefits for purchasing any of the products listed on this site, but you can see what donations have been made to agencies that protect children.
At year end, 2018, we donated
$200 to Pediatric Interim Care Center (PICC)–They are the nation’s first interim care nursery for drug-exposed and medically fragile newborns. Founded in 1990, PICC’s model program has given more than 3,100 infants a safe and healthy start in life. PICC provides 24-hour medical monitoring and nursing care to fill the gap between hospital and home for infants recovering from prenatal drug exposures or other medical difficulties. PICC’s pioneering program also facilitates visitation for families, provides caregiver training, follows the babies after they leave, and offers a range of community outreach and education services. They are located in Kent, Washington, 20 miles southeast of Seattle. (See http://www.picc.net)
$200 to International Church of the Foursquare Gospel for their Disaster Relief’s Project Nourish, which works to mitigate starvation in East and Central Africa. (See https://resources.foursquare.org/tag/foursquare-disaster-relief/)
