We only have 6,570 days with our children..

Nov 20, 2018 | #EndofYearGiving, #GivingTuesday, Children

As we make preparations to spend time with family and friends this week for the holiday, we’re reminded that we only have 6,570 days with our children from the time they are born until they are 18. We want to use each day wisely and make the most of it. We know this is many other parents’ greatest wish, and that is why our work is so critically important. If the American SPCC can play a part in helping someone become a better parent/caregiver to a child, then we have achieved what we set out to do.


Sometimes a family or child may feel they have nowhere to turn when faced with a serious issue.


The American SPCC is doing their best to solve this problem with our enthusiastic This Little Card Saves Lives (TLC) campaign which raises awareness of the vast number of free resources available. Recently, we created pocket cards with the top national hotlines that are intended to be a resource for families or individuals who may be struggling or not know where to turn to for help.

We’re sharing these cards with law enforcement, medical professionals, social workers, and so on for easy distribution in their communities.


This year, on #GivingTuesday (November 27), we are encouraging you to “Spread Some TLC” and make a contribution to help provide these life-saving cards at no charge to communities in need. With a low cost of just 8 cents per card, your $20 donation can reach and help 250 children and families.


Your support is their strength and brings us one step closer to preventing child abuse.

On behalf of the thousands of children that you are helping, but may never meet, we thank you for caring!


Many students and families are in crisis. Schools are becoming an ever growing support system where families and individuals can connect with community resources. These cards give concrete direction to those looking to change their situations for the better by providing phone numbers for immediate help.
