Funds for families that have children with cancer.
Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer a year. Their parents are the people who stick by their side day in and day out. We have to watch our child suffer and waste away. On top of that, Almost all of us are going through it with little to no help at all. Many parents go without meals, Showers, and are away from our families for months to years at a time. We are begging everyone for help to keep our lights on. To keep a roof over our heads. And, it all depends on how many kind friends we have on social media. My daughter has stage 4 brain cancer. We are doing everything we can to stay afloat while caring for our daughter in treatments. The costs of treatments alone is enough to completely sink a family into debt. I am just asking for our Government to set aside a little bit of funds to ease the burden from families like mine. So many of these parents are having to worry about even more. They have to figure out how to pay for burial and funeral costs after they just lost the most precious thing in their lives. It is too much on so many families. I know most that most people will never have to deal with this. But, Alot of families do. Whether it is in the form of a grant or a loan.. Please do something to ease the burden off of these families. We will not give up. We cant give up for our children. We are all they have. Please, Lets make a difference. Lets get our voices heard. #NaomiStrong #WeareFAMily

Harley's Law - legally requiring parents to report missing children in a timely manner.
Over 20,000 children go missing every year in the state of Ohio. While most are runaways and most children are recovered alive and well, there are still many who remain missing or are found dead. Harley Dilly was one of those unlucky kids who didn't make it home. Harley Dilly wasn't reported missing for almost two days. He died, stuck in a chimney less than 200 feet from his own home after struggling to breathe for an estimated 6 to 7 hours. Calls from the school were ignored and despite the fact that he never came home, no one reported him missing. He most certainly screamed for as long as he could and no one was even looking for him. It's time to hold parents responsible for neglect. No parent should ever be allowed to fail to report their child missing in a timely manner. It is time to stand up for the neglected and abused. It's time to require parents to parent again. It's time to make sure that Harley's death was not in vain. Let's protect our youth.

Help us end child marriage in New York State
We are the Naila Amin Foundation. Naila Amin, our founder, is a New Yorker who was forced by her parents to marry her first cousin when she was just 13. The first petition for her marriage was approved by the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) when she was only 14 years old. Her ex-husband was 13 years older than her at the time of the Nikah (Islamic ceremony), and she was then forced to go overseas to live with him at age 15, where she was abused. All of this, however, was enabled by legal child marriage in New York State. Naila hopes to enact legislation to ban the exceptions that lead to her suffering and prevent others from having to endure the same. We seek to create a bill, very similar in style and content to the one recently passed in New Jersey. Child marriage occurs legally through loopholes and exceptions. In New York State, a person can be married as young as 17 with judicial review. This does not protect 17 year old's. Lets raise the age to 18 with no exceptions. If a 17 year old is married off and decides he/she is not happy, they have to wait to turn 18 to file for divorce, trapping them in abusive marriages and a shelter wont take anyone under 18. This is just a recipe for disaster. However often times, parents are the ones forcing the marriages rather than consenting to them. In fact, abuse, honor killings, or being disowned are the repercussions of refusal on the part of children. Because these victims are underage, abuse is inherent in these marriages. Since 2000, more than 200,000 youths have been legally married in the US. In the summer of 2017, NY changed its child marriage age from 14 to 17, this is not enough. Lets protect everyone under 18.

Foster hope for the future
When a child enters foster care the foster parent still has to contact the biological parent for permission for the child to be seen at the doctor, dentist, any type of therapy etc... signing this petition could save a childs life . If a child is near death and the biological parents are unreachable and the child is not able to be seen it could end very bad. Or on the other hand if the parent does not consent of the child seeing a specific doctor or therapist and it is needed. Signing this petition can help foster parents obtain more legal rights to their foster children than to what is currently placed.
Petition to USA Today, South Carolina State Senate, South Carolina State House, United States Department of Health and Human Services, FOX News, Henry McMaster
Keep Family Together!
South Carolina DSS is ripping innocent families apart. The family courts aren't listening. True love is a bond between parent's and children and also between grandparents and grandchildren. When a parent dies and the other parent is unfit the child should remain with the family they know the most, with the most unbreakable bond, and all the love and upbringing they've ever known. DSS should not be able to walk in and tear these families apart. More needs to be done with how DSS handles false reports, understanding true empathy, and following protocols from the beginning not when tragedy happens!
Petition to Office of the Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, Texas Senate
Divorce should require Marital Counseling
Marriage takes two people. Divorce should take two people as well. Before one can get divorced, 6 months of marital counseling should be required with the exception of abuse. Marriages are failing at an all time high with this becoming a disposable society. This is supposed to be the evangelical capital of the U.S. Did you know that going through a divorce is the second most traumatic experience one can go through, second to losing a child? "Longitudinal studies demonstrate that two-thirds of unhappy marriages out there will become happy within five years if people stay married and do not get divorced. This led University of Chicago sociologist Linda J. Waite to say, “the benefits of divorce have been oversold.”"During the last two decades, the great preponderance of research evidence shows that people who are married consistently show much higher degrees of satisfaction with their lives than those who are single, divorced, or living with a partner.20 It also reveals that most people are happy in their marriages, and most of those who are not and who don’t get divorced eventually become happy." Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage. "Sociologists argue that today we stay connected to people only as long as they are meeting our particular needs at an acceptable cost to us. When the relationship appears to require more love and affirmation from us than we are getting back, we cut our losses and drop the relationship. This has also been called 'commodification,' a process by which relationships are reduced to economic exchange."
