End Family Fire vs. Adoption from Foster Care
Every day, 8 kids are unintentionally injured or killed by a gun left unlocked and loaded. These incidents are part of Family Fire. Referring to shootings that involve improperly stored or misused guns found in homes, Family Fire is a real and preventable tragedy that affects millions of families. The End Family Fire campaign tackles this issue head-on by encouraging people to learn more about proper gun safety and responsible ownership. When it comes to guns, we can all agree on the importance of preventing kids from having easy access to them. “Justin” aims to inspire gun owners to make their homes safer when it comes to the storage and handling of their guns by going to EndFamilyFire.org.
There are over 118,000 children in the U.S. foster care system awaiting adoption. However, teens have lower adoption rates and often wait longer to be adopted than younger children. No matter our age, we never outgrow the need for a loving and supportive family– especially throughout all of the milestones in our lives. This PSA reminds audiences that teens in foster care have plenty of “firsts” to experience with their adoptive parents and emphasizes the idea that you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent.
