For 30 years now, Child Advocates, Inc. has toiled tirelessly to combat the scourge of child abuse in Houston, TX. To commemorate this organization’s hard work and efforts, Direct Energy has teamed with Child Advocates to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with the “30 for 30” campaign.
During the month of September 2014, Direct Energy will give 30 cents for every new “Like” we receive on our Facebook page. We will also donate 30 cents for every share of any of our Child Advocates posts on Facebook. And to top it off, we’ll donate $30 for every Texas resident who signs up for service with Direct Energy using the promotion code “30for30”.
According to the Child Advocates’ website, “Every 8 minutes, a child in Texas experiences abuse or neglect. More than 5,000 children in the Houston area have experienced such life-threatening abuse or neglect that they had to be removed from their homes and placed in foster care.” To combat such startling statistics, the organization mobilizes court appointed volunteers to break the vicious cycle of child abuse. They speak up for abused children who are lost in the system and guide them into safe environments where they can thrive.
