Safer Internet Day – Working to make the Internet Safe for Children

Safer Internet Day

Monday I received an email from Sean Howard. Sean is on the board of KINSA (Kids Internet Safety Association) and he was hoping that I could help him raise awareness for a Safer Internet Day initiative. Sean found my blog through a search and apparently was quit taken by it. Upon viewing the Kinsa website, it wasn’t long before I was signing an on-line petition which calls for the declaration of February 7th as “Safer Internet Day”. Canadians- We need your help

Please take a moment to sign this on-line petition which calls for the declaration of February 7th as “Safer Internet Day”. We hope the Canadian Parliament will make this declaration and dedicate that day’s government business to finding ways to make the internet safer for kids.

So far, 37 countries and over 100 not-for-profit organizations and corporations endorse “Safer Internet Day” where the issues of Internet safety are discussed in Parliaments, in the media, and among concerned citizens. Canada and the US are surprisingly absent from this list.

To sign the petition, please click on the following link:Creating a safer Internet.

To find our more about KINSA (or to help our cause with a donation), please click on the following link: www.kinsa.net

Please blog about the petition and send it to your friends and family. Together we can make the internet safer for children. I’ve done my part, won’t you do yours?
