Stop Abuse!!

Thousands of bloggers from around the world are joining together this Thursday, September 27th with a single message: Stop Abuse!

We would love for our Villagers to be very vocal on this important issue, whether your personal concern is child abuse, animal abuse, elder abuse, or any other form of abuse that is an issue to you!


On Thursday, September 27th, post about any abuse topic you care about - child abuse, domestic abuse, animal abuse, drug abuse, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, political abuse - and let the world know you stand united with thousands of bloggers as part of the Bloggers Unite "Blog Against Abuse" campaign. Depending on your topic, you can even link to local, regional, national, or international organizations that you care about or support. Every post will count!

There are dozens of badges you can add to your post (or make your own):

WOW!! CyberCelt, you've been busy!! Thanks for posting all your links. It's impressive!

This was my first attempt to contribute to a Bloggers Unite campaign. I wrote about Stop Abuse Now! on our Yesterday's Memories blog.

The Gatekeeper said...

Sorry DB, I did not hear about this until today. I would have been a part of it.

Dirty Butter said...

I don't see that being late with a post would matter much, Gatekeeper, the way this is put together. All you have to do is post a comment with your link. It's certainly a topic worthy of more than one day's emphasis, agreed?

Jackie said...

Thanks for posting the Bloggers Against Abuse. Sadly I received it the day before as well so didn't give most time to get something up on 27th.

Hopefully it will grow and grow and become a huge Annual event.

I didn't find out about it in time to do much with it, myself. But we'll know to look for it next year, Jackie!
