New York, NY, June 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- As the Go-To prevention organization for all forms of violence and neglect in the United States, Love Our Children USA has accomplished much in its almost nine year history.
The organization is a voice for over 3 million children in our country who are victims of violence and neglect, for almost 1.8 million who are abducted and for almost 600,000 in foster care. As the leading national nonprofit that honors, respects and protects children, the organization has been responsible for saving four teens from suicide, getting several kids and their families into counseling, rescuing a teen from an Internet pedophile, helped several kids resolve bullying problems and provided thousands of parents with information and resources. These are just a handful of their accomplishments.
For their important work, Love Our Children USA has been honored as one of 25 charities Who Make Our Home A Better Place To Live through www.25Charities.com and, one of 21 regional charity winners Who Make The World A Better Place at www.Rezoom.com – and going on to compete for votes as the National winning charity with a $100,000 prize.
Not expecting more votes than American Idol, Dancing With The Stars (although its host Tom Bergeron serves on Love Our Children USA’s Celebrity Board of Governors with many other noted celebrities,) or the Presidential election, Love Our Children USA is asking its supporters, celebrity supporters and the public to vote for their organization which, if they win one or both awards, will bring much needed funds to increase their efforts to break the cycle of violence and neglect against children.
Ross Ellis, Love Our Children USA founder and chief executive officer said, “We are honored to compete with all of these other hard-working charities. Unlike most others, we don’t cure, treat or heal. Our cause does not tug at heartstrings because our issue is one that many simply don’t understand …because after all, who would harm children? In two words – we prevent. And that takes as many dollars if not more, so we can stop the violence and neglect before it ever starts.”
Window View Publications and Rezoom.com have recognized the contributions of Love Our Children USA and other esteemed charities by creating a voting process for these charities to win votes and money for their hard work.
Anyone can vote for free on www.25Charities.com. However, by purchasing the book for $29.95, it grants the buyer the equivalent of 100 votes, giving the charity with the most books bought the probability of receiving 20% of gross sales from all books during the promotion dates. And a unique aspect of the book includes the personalization feature, which allows the buyer to customize the first page to the wording of their choice, making it an ideal customized gift for graduations, anniversaries, or other special occasions – giving it the definitive personal touch.
Between June 1 and September 30, 2007, over 25% from each gross sale is given to all World Champion charities. 5% goes to the World Champion charity of your choice, an additional 20% is reserved for the charity with the most votes, and yet an additional 2¢ is donated to each charity in the book, in an effort to give each charity your “Two Cents.”
The personalized hard cover coffee table book with inspiring stories, is a resource for where to turn when people need help, the book, entitled “World Champions: 25 Charities That Make Our Home a Better Place to Live,” and features the missions, pictures, and heartwarming stories of 25 charities, and the impact they have on society.
Through www.Rezoom.com who recognizes the contributions of 21 regional charities who are vying for votes as the national charity Who Makes The World A Better Place and the prize of $100,000, supporters are asked to vote daily. This process begins on July 9th.
Ellis stated “the votes are important as the cash prizes awarded to the winning charity would be used to enhance programs needed to keep children safe. We’re asking our supporters and potentially new supporters to let their votes count through both of these initiatives for Love Our Children USA and for the important work we do to ensure that children grow up to be happy and healthy adults! Our visibility doesn’t come close to these great TV shows but we are hoping that our votes will be abundant.”
