KINGSTON, ON, Oct. 1, 2014 /CNW/ - On October 17th your Tweet could make a difference. That's the day Ontarians are being asked to go online to tweet against child abuse as part of the Second Annual Tweet To Stop Child Abuse.
Spearheaded by a coalition of Children's Aid Societies, the campaign asks people to tweet that child abuse needs to stop. Last year, more than 500 people tweeted along with the campaign in Southeastern Ontario. This year, the campaign goes province-wide.
"We've been dealing with child abuse in Ontario for more than 140 years. On October 17th we're asking people to help us try and stop it in 140 characters on Twitter," said Steve Woodman, Executive Director at Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, the lead agency in the campaign.
People using Twitter are being asked to use the special hashtag #tweettostopchildabuse. More information is available online at www.TweetToStopChildAbuse.ca.
