PROTECT’s One Hundred Friends

The National Association to PROTECT Children was the dream and hard work of many people across the United States. Some played a founding role by making generous financial contributions. Others gave small amounts of money but huge amounts of heart. They were all our founders. In April of 2003, the One Hundred Friends Society was established to get our struggling new bipartisan lobby on its feet. We asked 100 supporters to write checks for $1,000. All took a risk and none got a tax break. This $100,000 would become the seed money to keep PROTECT's doors open during its difficult first years. We are forever grateful to this circle of supporters for their critical role in establishing the National Association to PROTECT Children.
