The P. Luna Foundation, a California 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization is proud to present the

3rd Annual Male Abuse Awareness Week Campaign, December 1st through 8th, 2010!

This is an important awareness campaign to encourage young males who are victims and survivors of abuse to seek help before they grow up to become the abusers. We also provide men of all ages a huge list of help resources and communities. This is how we can all help stop many cases of child abuse, domestic violence, drug addiction and suicide before they start.

Oprah Winfrey embraced this cause last month with a landmark double episode where 200 sexually abused men came forward. Of the 200 men that showed up, 80% had admitted to contemplating suicide because they were not able to come out about their past abuse and seek help. The taboo of this cause has to end!
