Our Motivation
For The Children staff and volunteers are motivated by the example Christ set to share a common goal, with people of goodwill, of caring for those Jesus referred to as, “The least of these.”
Our Symbol
Our focal element is a flag — a highly symbolic icon. Both historically and universally, a flag is a sign, a symbol, and a proclamation. A flag can represent freedom, independence, pride — a cause worth fighting for.

Flags embody idealism — they stand for something. This flag stands for children.

The For The Children flag belongs to all who share our vision to eradicate family-induced childhood trauma, worldwide. It acts as a manifesto, a symbolic proclamation of allegiance to the children, for the children.

It says — it shouts — that as the bearers of this flag, we will act for the children, in favor of the children. We will stand by the children.
Our Pledge
The pledge to ‘carry our flag’ speaks of an invitation to others to join a movement. It is an urgent call for action, a story of thousands, worldwide, coming together around a common idea to wave a banner of love, and stand, for the children.

Because there is no greater cause.
