Without a little explanation, you might be stumped by the Children Assessment Center's latest fundraising play — GiveUr6. What could it mean?

A handsome group gathered at The Dunlavy recently for the unveiling of the campaign, described thusly, "GiveUr6 is centered on the idea that people  easily spend $6 on indulgences they do not think twice about, such as buying a latte in the morning or ordering dessert after dinner."

The goal, according to CAC executive director Elaine Stolte, is to get 1 million people to donate $6 to the noble non-profit that serves local victims of child sexual abuse. However much is raised, the funds will be used to help educate and heal children victims of sexual abuse and their families.

The figures are shocking: It is estimated that one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. The CAC provides services to approximately 5,000 local victims of child sexual abuse each year.

You can make your $6 (or greater) donation here.

Joining the campaign launch were special guest Chester Pitts, Joan Campbell, Rachel and Daryl Bristow, Lauren and Ken Maloy, Sharon Brier, Dana Kervin, Lauren and David Key, Christine and Ken Borglum, Anika Jackson and Staci Henderson.
