National Be Someone Day
annually on July 21st (since 2018)
Project Harmony on June 2nd, 2018
National Be Someone Day challenges everyone to take ten seconds to make a difference in a child's life and encourages everyone to commit to reporting child abuse. Pledges are to be taken on the day to help end child abuse and to be someone that children in one's community can talk to if they are experiencing child abuse. The day was founded by Project Harmony to not only end child abuse but to "bring communities together through education and awareness."
How to Observe
Observe the day by taking the Project Be Someone Pledge. The pledge outlines five steps that should be taken in order to help end child abuse and to be someone in your community that children can confide in: learn the facts, minimize opportunity, talk about it, know the signs, and act responsibly. Other ways you could observe the day include posting on social media using the hashtag #BeSomeoneDay, exploring the Project Be Someone website, or donating items or funds to support Project Harmony.
