Cyber Safety Non-Profit Web Wise Kids Endorsed by Celebrity Elisa Donovan

In today’s digital and online world, cyber-bullying and children’s online safety are issues that need to be brought to the forefront of society’s attention. Organizations, parents, and celebrities alike are coming forward to speak out against these problems. Elisa Donovan, best known for her starring role as Amber from the movie ‘Clueless’ and Morgan Cavanaugh from the WB TV-series ‘Sabrina, the Teenage Witch’ has teamed up with Web Wise Kids to educate children, parents, and teachers about online safety.
Web Wise Kids (WWK) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to “Promoting a culture of safety, responsibility, and respect to youth and families in this digital world.” WWK has helped reduce child online victimization by providing tools that are innovative, effective, and perhaps most important for children; tools that are interesting.
WWK uses the unique approach of creating online games for youths that effectively communicate internet and cell phone safety. “For years I have been talking to teenagers about personal health issues driven by peer pressure, self-esteem, and bullying,” says Elisa Donovan. “Web Wise Kids, an organization that focuses on educating kids about online safety, provides another opportunity for me to help encourage kids in a positive way.” WWK’s school approved crime-prevention programs have already prepared over 10 million youths to proactively be aware and defend themselves from online and cell phone danger.
It doesn’t take much to get involved with Web Wise Kids and each donation goes a long way towards making a difference. Every donation goes directly towards helping a school receive WWK programs as well as training resources for teachers to help implement these tools. Donations are accepted online, corporate partnerships are encouraged and tickets to the Web Wise Kids dinner auction and dance, Dancing Under the Stars, being held on September 15, 2011 in Orange County, CA will be available for purchase at www.webwisekids.org.
