When so much attention is given to what divides us, generosity brings people together across races, faiths, and political views.

Grassroots generosity and community action are powerful forces for good, especially in turbulent times.

Recent data shows that people are highly motivated to give in 2021, and are giving more in response to needs in their community and for causes they care about.

#GivingTuesday emphasizes opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while still practicing physical distancing. How can you do this? Host a birthday fundraiser for the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation during your birthday month. It is so easy to do! Just follow this link:https://socialgood.fb.com/charitable-giving/birthday-fundraiser/

The social isolation measures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic are making it more difficult for those who are at risk of abuse or violence to safely reach out for help.

“Signal for Help” is a simple one-handed sign someone can use on a video call. It can help a person silently show they need help and want someone to check in with them in a safe way. Learn more at https://canadianwomen.org/signal-for-help/

The Safe Haven Law was passed 20 years ago this week. The law is a simple, safe, legal alternative to unsafe infant abandonment. A parent can hand an unharmed newborn less than 30 days old to staff at hospitals, emergency medical care facilities, police stations, firehouses, college and university police stations and Illinois State Police district headquarters and walk away with no questions asked. But the law doesn't work if nobody knows about it. Help spread the word. Order FREE posters, brochures and other materials here: http://saveabandonedbabies.org/files/ Save Abandoned Babies

Sharing these sweet baby smiles with all who support Save Abandoned Babies! This is Baby #38, and today is her birthday! She is turning 13 today. Thirteen! There are no words to convey my gratitude for Safe Haven Law and the incredible work of Save Abandoned Babies. Our daughter changed our family forever in the best possible way. Forget all the bad things you hear about teenagers these days, because this gal is gonna make a GREAT teenager. She's my sun and moon and stars and everything in between. She is loved and adored by so many friends and family. She has wonderful friends of her own, and she is a wonderful friend to them. Her teachers and school principals say her smile lights up the whole school. Thank you to all who support Save Abandoned Babies! God bless you all!

It's become a tradition on Zoe's birthday we celebrate at Dairy Queen. Five years ago this was the spot where we received a phone call from our adoption agency that a baby was abandoned at a hospital under the safe haven law. We are so grateful that Zoe's birth mom knew about the safe haven law and chose for her to have a great life. You can leave your baby, up to 30 days old, with a staff member at any hospital, fire station, or police station no questions asked in Illinois. April is Safe Haven Awareness Month! Please share with others and educate them about the IL Safe Haven Law!
