At the core of this story: child abuse. #graphicnovel #Vancouver @Kickstarter @annatfabulous #ISPCC

PROJECT FUNDING HAS LAUNCHED on KICKSTARTER:

As of this moment [September 5, 2011], we’re 80% funded.

BUT to get funding we need to reach 100%! That’s how Kickstarter works! Please help us make our goal by Sept 11 5:17 PM!

The case itself centres around two unknown children, two young brothers who deserve to be identified.

These children were undoubtedly not only victims of homicide, but also victims of child abuse.  As I work with children who have been traumatized by severe physical and sexual abuse, this case is particularly important to me.

These boys died without a voice and without a name.

I want to tell their story.

Please help me do so.

The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's Summer campaign, I Can’t Wait Until I Grow Up. “The campaign, which will run for the month of May 2011, highlights that childhood is supposed to be one of the happiest and safest times in a child’s life, yet for many Irish children who contact Childline this is simply not the case.” - The Complex Media and Design Blog

“The ISPCC is the only organisation in Ireland providing 24 hour support services for children and young people through our Childline service. Childline receives the majority of its 2,300 calls per day after 6pm each evening, when most other support services are closed. 

Childline receives no government funding, relying on the generosity of donors and volunteers to help run this vital, unique service. 

ISPCC support workers and volunteer mentors also work with over 1,500 individual children and families nationwide each year through our TeenFocus, ChildFocus and Leanbh services. Our support workers encounter many issues such as emotional and behavioural problems, anxiety, grief, risk of drug and alcohol abuse and early school leaving. 

The ISPCC is a child centred organisation providing a range of independent and unique services which are preventative and empowering in nature.”  [SOURCE]
