The Lauren’s Kids Foundation works each and every day to prevent childhood sexual abuse through education and awareness, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support. Since becoming an official 501(c)(3) in 2007, the organization has brought and continues to bring positive change to the lives of many through school-based prevention curriculum, public awareness efforts and legislative advocacy. Founder Lauren Book has effectively helped draft and successfully pursue the passage of nearly two dozen new laws the Florida legislature adopted intended to protect children from sexual abuse and to better serve survivors.
eTags.com, a private vehicle registration technology company, recognizes these life-saving efforts and has partnered with Lauren’s Kids to help make an even greater positive impact. All registered Florida drivers now have the opportunity to donate to Lauren’s Kids while renewing their vehicle registration online with eTags. The company is very excited about using technology to further the cause of the Lauren’s Kids foundation.
“We were excited when approached with the opportunity to help Lauren’s Kids. This is an organization that’s truly making a difference and we’ve always wanted to use eTags and its success in private industry to do the same, “ Tommy Bussey, Chief Strategy Officer and Founder, said.
Early results are showing promise for the partnership and eTags aims to contribute $100,000 or more each year to help Lauren’s Kids fight sexual abuse.
“It shouldn’t hurt to be a child, but all too often it does,” says Lauren Book, Lauren’s Kids Founder and CEO. “Lauren’s Kids is overwhelmingly thankful for our new partnership with eTags, which will allow us to expand our efforts to prevent abuse and protect childhood in communities throughout Florida.”
