Dear Volunteer:

You asked how you can help. May I suggest a project?

Step 1. To find organizations dealing with abused children, use Google to search words and phrases such as "child abuse," "parenting," "mandated parenting classes," "domestic violence," "youth violence," "school violence," "gang violence," "bullying," etc. Your search will yield many e-mail addresses of the very people we hope to reach. Compile a list of those addresses.

Step 2. Copy the text shown in the box below and paste it into an e-mail to be sent to the people on your list.

Please open and read the following link and, if you agree, share it with others:

"How to Prevent VIOLENT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR in the Next Generation" at http://www.nospank.net/vcb.htm

Some recipients will welcome your message. Some may feel motivated to share it with others. Some will delete it without a second thought. The only thing that's certain is this: if you do nothing, the result will be nothing.

I hope you decide to join our campaign to help make our world a better, safer, happier place for generations to come. The first step, of course, is ending child maltreatment.
