It’s amazing what we can do when we come together. Good Secrets and Bad Secrets is dedicated to serving the global community of children through families, educators, health providers, faith-based leaders, athletic organizations, and all advocates of child safety. I know from experience how difficult it can be to articulate threats and other harmful behaviors. Asking for help may not be an option for every child-but this can change. Every child needs to know they have adults in their lives who will listen, believe, and act in their best interests if they need help. Eradicating child cruelty is an aggressive and optimistic goal but I believe it can be achieved if we work together as one community. If you see or hear something, say something. Thank you for caring and sharing.

There is nothing more precious than childhood innocence. Unfortunately, there are those who choose to prey on our children causing them irreparable harm. Good Secrets and Bad Secrets mission is to keep children safe from abuse and cruelty. This is our charge and with your assistance, we will achieve this mission worldwide.
As our Chairperson has stated about her experiences, I have also experienced childhood cruelty. Good Secrets and Bad Secrets will give others, especially our children, an avenue to express themselves, to let others know what is going on in their lives. Our Ambassador for Child Safety, Libby the Lizard, makes it “Cool” for our children to talk to someone when they are troubled. Having our children develop a “Trust List” will give them names readily available to call on when they are in need.
We look forward to meeting with you as you join us on this journey.
