Text “RESPECT” to 41010 to Support the RESPECT! Campaign

Send Your Respect in a Text!

Today is National Respect Day and the Sugar Network is partnering with the Family Violence Prevention Fund for the first annual RESPECT! Campaign to raise awareness about sexual assault and take a stand against child abuse.

You can lend your support by texting the keyword “RESPECT” to 41010 – for a goal of 10 million acts of respect for the 10 million children who witness violence in their homes each year. Your mobile effort will be mapped out on, which will be populated by the minute with respect acts across the country.

You can also choose to donate $5 from your mobile phone to support the FVPF, one of the nation’s leading organizations working to prevent and end violence against women and children, and you can invite a friend to join the movement. (The $5 donation will be added to your phone bill after you opt in.)

DearSugar will be sharing educational posts throughout the month of October with statistics on family violence and how you can help prevent it. You can show your support by purchasing and showing off the official RESPECT! bracelet. R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
