About Childhelp National Day of Hope:

In 2000, the founders of Childhelp, Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, worked with Congress to pass a resolution designating the first Wednesday of each April as Childhelp National Day of Hope. On this day, people across the country light a five-wick candle and observe five minutes of silence in recognition of the now nearly five children who die each day as a result of abuse and neglect in the home and the millions of others who suffer.
