What is Rainbird

Rainbird
Rainbird is a growing group of people worldwide who are committed to the end of child abuse. To end child abuse and save children, we build partnerships, unite like-minded individuals, organize events, petitions, protests, and campaigns, and mobilize people globally to take action that ends child abuse and saves children. You can see some of our “Saves” on our Successes page.

Where did the name come from?

SkullThe Zuni Indians thought the hummingbird had magical powers. When they wanted rain, they prayed to the hummingbird. When the rain came, they renamed it the Rainbird. In some circles, a totem is a spiritual guide. The hummingbird totem means to “make the impossible possible”. This perfectly characterizes the end of child abuse.

What is The Plan?

Rainbird blockRainbird’s plan is to serve people across the country and around the world, providing them with the proper tools and funding to unite, organize, and mobilize campaigns that end abuses against children anywhere on earth. We build effective tools, fund endeavors that quantifiably contribute to the end, work with people to expand the base of people involved and strengthen their ability to produce results by providing them with the most effective tools to eradicate the most entrenched issues.

Why do we do this?

The MobChange happens when we unleash the passion, power, and voice of people, our greatest untapped resource. To achieve human rights for children and eradicate abuse once and for all, we must activate and mobilize the public.

What do we do?

The Mob BlockWe build public demand across the U.S. and around the world to end crimes against children. To give people greater success and ease, we are building a community organizing platform with tools to unite and mobilize anywhere on earth and activate large numbers of people for the purpose of saving children.

Why do we focus on building public demand?
Rainbird
In studying this issue, we found many organizations that provided services and education, but we didn’t find diminishing child abuse statistics. For us, it was a simple question: why do the same thing as everyone else when it duplicates efforts, creates competition, and doesn’t reduce statistics? In studying why child abuse wasn’t diminishing we found that public demand was missing. More crucially, we found that when public demand was provided, child abuse ended. We also learned that the public didn’t know what to do and no one was teaching them. What happens if a report is ignored, or CPS refuses to respond, or a school wounds a child during a spanking, or doesn’t respond to a bullying issue, or politicians don’t pass a law, or a d.a. won’t try a case, or a corrupt judge gives a child back to its abusing father…?
So, Rainbird fills in the gap, providing what was missing. As with any social issue, the only power great enough to cause action and stop the violation and destruction of our children is public demand.
