Just About A Month To Go!

We're just over a month away from distribution day. Who else is as excited as I am about that? We admins here at Fandom 4 Children just wanted to take a brief moment to that everyone who has donated to, written for, or made a banner for Fandom 4 Children. We've had an amazing turn out, and as a result, we have decided that Fandom 4 Children will be a yearly event. We have over 60 authors signed up to contribute, some of whom are donating more than one piece, and we're almost at the halfway point for reaching our fundraising goal. We have definite high hopes that we'll be able to fully reach our goal by the donation deadline on April 10th, and don't forget to check your inboxes on April 15th when the full compilation will be sent out. Until then, head on over to the teaser section of the blog to check out some of the awesomeness that will be available in the final compilation.

Help Put An End To Child Abuse

It's no secret that there are children all over the word who are suffering from abuse and neglect. Over 3 million reports of child abuse are made every year in the United States; however, those reports can include multiple children. In 2009, approximately 3.3 million child abuse reports and allegations were made involving an estimated 6 million children.

 There were more than 46,000 confirmed cases of child abuse in Australia last year. That's almost 1 case every 10 minutes where a child is suffering from neglect or physical, sexual or emotional abuse (often by people they know and should be able to trust). Many of these kids get no professional help whatsoever, and end up with lifelong problems.

In the United Kingdom, research indicates that abuse and neglect are both under-reported and under-recorded. According to their most recent statistics (March 2011), there are approximately 46, 700 children who are known to be at risk of abuse right now, and one in four young adults were maltreated during childhood. 

 In an effort to help put an end to child abuse, Fandom 4 Children has been organized. We are hoping that members of all fandoms from all across the globe will be willing to reach out and contribute in some small way through donations to charities or by contributing to the compilation we are organizing. If you would like to donate, please go to the Where To Donate section of the blog for information on how to donate and receive a copy of the compilation when it is sent out. If you are an author and would like to contribute, please go to the Author Sign Up section of the blog for more information.

Author Sign ups begin January 1, 2012
Author Submissions are due April 1, 2012
Last day to donate is April 10, 2012
Compilation distribution day is April 15, 2012
