Come to the Carnival, Raise Your Awareness

We had a bit of a delay, but the blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is now up and taking readers for a spin. Visit Megan's new website, Imaginif, and raise your awareness about child abuse and protecting our children. Megan has done a fabulous job organizing this carnival and putting together her new site with forums discussing child protection. Here's Megan's call to action:

"Imaginif…child safety became serious business went live to the world on Thursday 17th of May 2007. From our Australian headquarters, our aim is to be the largest on-line child protection conversation in the world. To do this, we need YOU to participate in the conversations: to talk about the child safety related issues that are on your mind." (Emphasis here is mine--go Megan!)

She goes on to say:

"You may be a parent, a grandparent, a survivor, a concerned person or a professional in the social science sector. Whoever you are, where ever you are and what ever you do, if protecting kids is an area you are interested in then come on in and start talking.

Protecting children is a community responsibility. This community is a global community, made up of men and women prepared to use their words to help raise the profile of child protection as serious business.

If you have ever wondered what you can do to help kids, then this is the spot for you. Join us. Make some new friends and let’s get down to the serious business of keeping kids safe: no matter where they are in the world.
"

I'm proud to have Megan host our carnival and I wish her all the best in her new child protection endeavor. The world, and its children (therefore our future) need more champions like Megan.

Thank you Marj.
I got all choked up when I read your last paragraph.
I am driven by the desperation of families I have worked with over the last 15 years. There is no need for anyone to suffer in silence. Sexual assault does not equal shame and guilt for the person who has been harmned - Sexual assault equals shame and guilt for the perpetrators and the communities who do nothing to protect our children.

You're welcome, Megan. And I really meant what I said.

Is there anything you would like me to send for the June Carnival on my woundedwoman blog?

I really don't know if there's anything carnival worthy there, so please do let me know if there's any post you find suitable.
 
OMG, wounded woman! i just visited your site and I think there are MANY posts you could submit to the carnival. Just follow your heart on the ones you would like to have included! Thanks! :)
