Defend Innocence

This month our newest Kudos was announced. The Defend Innocence Bundle, the point of this bundle is to raise awareness about childhood sexual abuse. This is one of the most misunderstood and underreported crimes in Canada, and I am sure else where! Just how common it is makes me sick! I am going to try my best to not go on a rampage throughout this post. Here are just a few statistics:

  • 1 in 4 Girls is a victim of child sexual abuse.
  • 1 in 5 Children is a victim of child sexual abuse.
  •  Of every 100 incidents of sexual assault, only 6 are reported to the police.
  • 60% of sexual abuse/assault victims are under the age of 17.
  • Young and otherwise vulnerable women are most likely to be sexually abused.

Now what can you do to help? Simple, talk about it! Do not let this fade away, out of 100 incidents only 6 are reported?!?!? If you think about it, no wonder, people who report it are shamed, blamed even! We need to come together and support ANYONE who comes forward. Only 2 – 4% of all sexual assaults reported are false reports, 2-4% people, that is all! The OTHER 96-98% have actually occurred!

Younique has started a foundation to help sexually abused women. Here is their mission:

Our Mission

“We inspire hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by hosting them at a retreat, where they are uplifted by each other and learn skills that can help them find individual healing.

We educate parents and empower them to protect their children from sexual abuse while leading a public dialogue to bring the epidemic of abuse to light.”  –http://youniquefoundation.org/our-story/

With every purchase, you have the choice to donate to this foundation by rounding up to the nearest dollar at checkout. Every little bit helps and it all adds up! Here is what you get in the bundle for this month:

    1. I agree! There is so many great things to donate/support but honestly this is the first time I have seen a company support any type of sexual abuse, there are probably tons out there I have just never seen them.

    This is such an important and powerful message.
    Thank you so much to youniquebyjess for allowing me to share this post. I am a huge believer that we can do so much when we put our minds to it and work together. We can stop (or start) anything. And today, I want to share with you a chance to help raise awareness about child sexual abuse, and hopefully make a positive impact in someones life.
