Mycroburst Stands Tall (

WIth the birth of the internet, child sexual abuse became a global issue. As a result of the internet, we can no longer end child sexual abuse anywhere without ending it everywhere. The Innocence Revolution: a Global Day to End Child Sexual Abuse, ( is the launching event of a movement. Slated for April 2013, this event is a global response to the need for unification, not just of child sexual abuse organizations and government agencies, but of states, countries, and individuals from all walks of life and in every industry. The Innocence Revolution is a call-to-action for the complete eradication of child sexual abuse globally.

Child abuse is an under-acknowledged issue. We don't talk about it enough and we give even less time, money, and energy to it. Most people think it can't end, and act accordingly, which is to say that most people do nothing. MycroBurst's cofounders, Joe Witte and Zaheer Dodhia, are not those kind of people. We want to acknowledge their pioneering spirit, because it matters.

MycroBurst is a small business. They create a competition-based, crowdsourcing graphic design service where winning designers can earn prize monies set by the client. MycroBurst generously donated their services to the core planning committee of The Innocence Revolution (, a Global Day to End Child Sexual Abuse. They helped us build a unified global logo and message for a movement that will finally take us beyond the mere toleration of child sexual abuse and give children a voice to create a world free of child sexual abuse. MycroBurst's commitment to this issue is helping us make a lasting impact on a global level.

The Innocence Revolution recognizes Joe Witte, Zaheer Dodhia, and MycroBurst for their philanthropy, and for being a model of corporate courage willing to engage with society's most challenging social issue. MycroBurst's action is an example of how one small business can make a big difference.
