National Be Someone Day

National Be Someone Day is a holiday observed on July 21st that encourages everyone to take a few moments out of their day to make a difference in a child’s life. It’s a day to provide emotional support to a child and listen to their concerns.

It’s also a day when people can earn the trust of children so that if they’re abused in the future, they feel safe enough to report their abuse to you. If we all work together, we can use this holiday as a launching point to help children who are being abused by being their advocates.

The History of National Be Someone Day

This holiday was founded by Project Harmony to bring communities together through education about the problem of child abuse and what we as a society can do to end it. Although we don’t know exactly when this holiday was created, we do know that it has been around for at least a few years.

Observing National Be Someone Day

Anyone who wants to begin celebrating this holiday should start by educating themselves about child abuse and taking the pledge to report child abuse when they see it.

There are five steps to prepare a person to report child abuse: education, minimizing the opportunity for abuse, talking about it, knowing the signs of abuse, and reacting responsibly. People can also support this holiday by using the hashtag #NationalBeSomeoneDay to spread the word about this holiday. Together, we can end child abuse and make our society a safer place for children.
