In the age of 24/7 news, photos, social media and always being "plugged in," staying connected with friends and family is just a click away. There are many online avenues to document your life and share with those who like to be in the know, whether that is through a status post on Facebook, a Tweet on Twitter or a photo on Instagram, Tumblr or other photo apps.
Photos are the most popular way to tell a story or share events with those who might not be close by. People take photos of EVERYTHING — their children, pets, clothes (aka those new shoes you just bought) and even food, which has spiked in recent years and gained the nickname "foodtography."
Bears 4 Kids program donates stuffed animals to police department
For a child, any situation can turn traumatic and be scary. Imagine you wake up in the middle of the night to a fire in your home, and you are being pulled from the house by a parent, a firefighter, a sibling or a neighbor. You have on just pajamas and don’t even have time to grab your favorite stuffed animal or toy.
Or maybe you can’t find your family and are crying in the arms of a policeman at a store or big festival because you got lost and separated from Mom or Dad.
Maybe you are a victim of child abuse and you don’t know who you can trust and lean on for comfort because you don’t know if you are safe.
