Davis House Child Advocacy Center is taking a stand against child abuse, insisting that it will not be allowed in our backyards. That’s what #nimby means: Not In My Back Yard.
The #nimby Challenge is simple: over a seven day period, share these five messages with your followers on Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media site you use.
1. 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused by their 18th birthday. #nimby
2. Only 12% of abuse cases will be reported. Have the courage to report. #nimby
3. #nimby @davishousecac provides hope for hundreds of child abuse victims each year.
4. The average lifetime cost of post-abuse care for a single life is $210,012. #nimby
5. Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic & cultural lines, within all religions & at all levels of education. #nimby
