Black Philanthropy Month: Local Recognition of a Global Celebration

Written by Perrine DeShield    on August 23, 2018


Every February we witness national campaigns and promotions celebrating African-Americans during Black History month. From Spotify and their curated playlists to your favorite magazines and retail brands paying homage, there are many ways to witness and spread #blackjoy.

Though many of these national campaigns hit hard for a month, there are others that extend throughout the year—and more specifically, there are local Charlotte organizations that strengthen and progress the black community every single day.

Thompson Child and Family Focus and Pat's Place Keep Children #SafeFromHarm

Many people want to make a change in their communities, they just don’t know how. SHARE Charlotte has hundreds of valuable community resources all in one centralized location. I look forward to sharing several of those resources monthly, in order to encourage you to put your good intent to action.

A nation-wide statistic shows that 90% of children are victimized by someone they know and trust. According to the Council for Children’s Rights, nearly 40% of children reported abused or neglected were under the age of six and nearly 63% of investigated reports include more than one child victim. In June, SHARE Charlotte is featuring organizations that keep members of our community #SafeFromHarm.  Thompson Child and Family Focus and Pat’s Place are two hard working nonprofits that focus on child abuse prevention.
