Every day, millions of babies in the U.S. miss opportunities to grow and develop to their full potential due to poverty, poor health/nutrition, and lack of early education. Through its programs, Save the Children provides support to 300,000 U.S children in need, and JOHNSON’S shares in this mission to make a positive impact on baby’s cognitive, social, and emotional development.
Like JOHNSON’S, Save the Children believes in giving children a healthy start. The organizations know that by transforming children’s lives now, we can help change the course of their future. Through its pioneering programs, Save the Children invests in childhood right from the start, helping to ensure girls and boys in need have the best chance to succeed.
Did you know?
- More than 60 percent of low-income families have no books in their homes for children.
What's more is that disadvantaged children who don't participate in high-quality early education programs are:
· 50 percent more likely to be placed in special education
· 25 percent more likely to drop out of school
· 60 percent more likely to never attend college
· 70 percent more likely to be arrested for a violent crime
· 40 percent more likely to become a teen parent.
This holiday season, JOHNSON’S and Save the Children are igniting a social movement to support early childhood development, which will launch alongside a new video featuring Save the Children families benefiting from early childhood development programs.
Watch JOHNSON’S YouTube video to hear more about Save the Children’s early childhood development programs and the families who are benefiting from them. Help us share the stories of families whose lives were changed forever when their children were given an equal start in life.
Johnson’s believes every child deserves a fair shot at a vibrant future. Here's another way to help: Donate a Photo app. Share your Donate a Photo app via the app. App info here: http://www.donateaphoto.com/en_US/the-app. When you select Save the Children® through the Donate a Photo app, JOHNSON’S will triple its donation in support of early childhood education programs.
