If you are wanting to do something about child abuse in New Zealand, rather than doing something that will not make any difference, like changing your facebook profile photo to a cartoon character - how about donating to an organisation like Jigsaw?
Jigsaw is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the well-being of all New Zealand children and their families. The diverse group of independent, community-based social service agencies that make up the Jigsaw network, advocate against all forms of child abuse, neglect, and family violence and provide support to families so they can raise their children in safe and nurturing ways.
Jigsaw stands for:
•dads being the best they can be within their families
•mums being supported to be the best they can be
•families that flourish
Jigsaw stands against:
•child abuse and neglect
•violence towards women and
•all forms of violence within the home.
If you agree with these principles and want to play your part for our children, then read on to find ways that you can get involved.
Time to walk the walk people!
