Founded by Project Harmony (, on Sunday, July 21, National Be Someone Day challenges everyone to take 10 seconds to make a difference in the life of a child.

There are so many things that can be done in 10 seconds. You can order a cup of coffee or water a plant. You can hear or tell someone a bad joke. In 10 seconds, you can change your mind and then offer a prayer of thanks. When you walk into a room, in that time, you can register the pain in someone’s face and begin to provide comfort. You can praise and honor someone who deserves it.

“At Project Harmony, we believe that all children are someone,” says Project Harmony Senior Director of Communications Angela Roeber. “And, all adults can be someone to a child. All it takes is the commitment to stop the cycle of child abuse. On National Be Someone Day, take the pledge to be the person to make a difference in a child’s life. Most importantly, be someone prepared to report when a child trusts you enough to tell you they’ve been hurt.”

Project Harmony founded National Be Someone Day to help end child abuse and bring communities together through education and awareness. To participate, drop off a donation at Project Harmony on Sunday, July 21, between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Take the pledge on National Be Someone Day which you can find at and use the #BeSomeoneDay to share on social media.
