"When we correct the factors that keep children at risk, we can make a difference in the lives of those children and the adults theyll grow up to be." Mary Frances Bowley
Children are meant to imagine bright futures and chase them. But for the millions of at-risk children in America, hope is lost in the heavy fog of trauma. Make It Zero is a call to bring it back.
Tying shocking statistics to real stories, Make It Zero explores various forms of childhood vulnerability and offers specific ways for everyone to end them. It reveals the world of opportunity behind a single moment of compassion, and it teaches us that when we help the hopeless dream again, we ourselves come more alive.
A book for everyonemoms, dads, teachers, bus drivers, nurses, whomeverit calls us to fulfill our responsibility to children and build a world that is safe for every last one.
Each of us is only one person, but one person determined to act is powerful. Moments can multiply into movements and create groundswells of change. Make It Zero is your moment. Be inspired. Be empowered. Help bring hope to every child.
JENNIFER BRADLEY FRANKLIN is a multi-platform journalist whose work appears in numerous publications, including USA Today. Make it Zero represents not only a friendship but also a dynamic partnership in the fight against childhood vulnerability.
"Testimonies that allow the pain of the past to bring hope to thousands and awareness to those that make a difference.
There is so much danger in the world today for our children. Our children are our hope for the future. With poverty, homelessness, drug abuse, prostitution, human trafficking, these problems will continue to grow for our children. This book is a compilation of testimonies of those that have escaped with the help of people and organization made of people that care. It can be overwhelming with the needs, however, this book reminds you that all you have do is care for just one person. In helping one person, you help many. This account is unique that it does not only tell their stories, but all the different organizations that behind the success of those that have overcome the odds. All because of someone who cared. Each chapter shares a story, how an organization came to walk alongside, and how you can be involved. Not everyone can foster but maybe you can tutor. In my area of the United States, their are several organizations that equip you and have a place for you to help families overcome poverty and bring families together to be strengthen. There is something you can do.
This is not a testimony of the gospel but the gospel at work as we are called to show mercy to the oppressed."

Allie B.5 Stars Out Of 5Hope Filled, Practical Solutions to an Overwhelming IssueJanuary 5, 2016Allie B.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mary Frances Bowley and Jennifer Bradley Franklin present an engaging and motivating book about the ongoing efforts of the movement to safeguard every child. Full of hope, Make It Zero provides statistics, stories, and solutions in five areas: poverty, hunger, isolation, abuse, and trafficking. Many books on these subjects only leave you frustrated and wishing you could make an impact, but Make It Zero provides Take Action sections at the end of each part. There you find practical ways to make a difference and stories of people that did. As a social worker, as a student, as a young woman, and simply as a citizen of our world, Make It Zero has inspired me to continue doing what I can, with what I have, where I am to help make the number of vulnerable young people in the United States, zero.
