Our Boston Ambassadoll Shnell Swain has is an advocate against child abuse and molestation. In 2009, she designed a Child Safety Activity Book Set that is designed to act as a dialogue initiation tool for adults, while providing a fun-filled way for children to learn, recognize and report unacceptable child/adult interactions.
Between April 1st and April 15th, to support Shnell and raise awareness about this ongoing epidemic, purchase a copy of her Child Safety Coloring & Activity Book and share it with your friends, families and neighbors. The books can be purchased here: https://bit.ly/2DTHIsp
