Change 4 Children Change Boxes
Here at Childhelp the month of April is a BIG DEAL! It is National Child Abuse Prevention month, and April 4th is the Childhelp National Day of Hope. In honor of the National Day of Hope, Childhelp hosts a luncheon at the Capital in Washington DC with our nations’ most influential leaders to bring awareness to the issue of child abuse and neglect, and to showcase just how important this issue is to the citizens of our great nation.
As a Childhelp supporter, you have the opportunity to help us make a GREATER impact on that day!
We would like you to join us in our Change 4 Children campaign, which is a change drive taking place now through April 4th all across the country. During this time, you and supporters across the US will be collecting change in a variety of ways and on April 18th, Childhelp will officially announce just how much was raised during this collective effort. The funds raised will go directly to support Childhelp programs, and the demonstration of passion with how much is raised will send an important message.
It is a demonstration of how each caring citizen can do something relatively small that collectively can make a HUGE difference. We will show that we are a nation united and dedicated to seeing an end to child deaths due to abuse and neglect.
Please join us by downloading the attached change collection kit and start today!

Change Collection Ideas
- Organize a ‘Skip a Lunch’ day where students or co-workers donate their lunch money. Setup a table in the lunch area’s a week prior to the event to promote it, and then have the table setup and ready to collect on the day of the event.
- Organize a team to distribute change collection cartons to area businesses, asking business owners to match the funds collected. Go to businesses that you frequent, letting them know that you will promote visiting their business during the change drive.
- Have classes and/or departments participate and compete against one another, the group that brings in the most money wins! Ask a local restaurant to donate lunch or an afternoon dessert break to the group that raises the most.
- Have your own ideas? Just let the national office know what you’d like to do! sagarcia@Childhelp.org
Simply click on the link to download the carton template, print onto 11”x17” cardstock, fold, and secure. You can print out and assemble as many change collection cartons as you’d like, then get creative about how you will collect change and spread awareness about the lifesaving work that Childhelp is doing. Don’t forget to ask a local business or bank to do a funds match for the change collected, and offer to promote their match during your collection events.
