Project Safe

Entered in Social Good Campaign


Human Equality/ Human Kindness/ We Are All Connected

Objective & Strategy

Helping kids who can't help themselves by collaborating and spreading awareness through social media.

Desired Outcome

Project Safe believes that all children deserve the basic human right to be safe. Our hope is that by working together we can build a community that will help end inhumane treatment of children. At Project Safe we advocate for children of abuse, poverty, and bullying.

I started Project Safe because I believe every child deserves the basic right to be safe and have a fair shot in life. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a loving home and it has become a passion of mine to help these children. I believe every child counts and is equal in value. I realize the solution is bigger than all of us and if this project only helps one child it will be worth the effort.

Strategy and Execution


To create positive change by connecting with like minded individuals and organizations via social media who have the same vision of wanting to make the world a more kind and safe place for children. Child abuse, poverty, and bullying are very complex problems, however, I believe each and every one of us have the ability to help make a difference in the lives of these precious children. Social media has the power to change the world for the better as it allows so many people to connect in an instant. It creates a platform for collaboration that allows one to raise awareness for children who have no voice and are marginalized. It is our social responsibility to help society's most vulnerable and be a voice for the voiceless.

Currently, I am working on a children's book to further my efforts with Project Safe.
