A Celebration for Children All Over America!

We wanted to share some good news with you!

On June 7, over 1,000 mayors from around the country gathered in Oklahoma City for the United States Conference of Mayors. Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido introduced a resolution to the conference on behalf of Festival of Children Foundation, and as a result, the conference resolved to designate September National Child Awareness Month!


A few members of our staff just returned from Washington, DC where we met with local Members of Congress and state senators to encourage their support of National Child Awareness Month at the federal level. We eagerly await the passing of these resolutions in Congress and the Senate, which are expected to be introduced in the weeks ahead. This would be the third year in a row that the legislation is recognized for the entire month.

Stay tuned! And hey, thanks for your continued support of our efforts!
