Every 92 seconds someone is sexually assaulted in America. As an American company, this statistic is embarrassing and we believe everyone has the ability and the responsibility to try and reduce this figure. We did some research and found a device that could help protect our female employees and family members. The device is called SafeSound. The inventor was a father whose daughter was abducted in college and was never found. He did a lot of research and spoke to many people in law enforcement. What he learned was that the most effective deterrent was loud noise to draw attention to a potential assault. Predators need silence to quickly abduct a person. A loud piercing noise causes them to quickly run away. We purchased 800 of these units and have distributed them out to our staff and family members. We are hoping all our staff will share the information about this device with as many people as possible.
Many cultures have a saying that means we should all help each other. In America, it is “Pay it Forward”. The Caribbean countries say “Each one, Teach One” In Serbia, it’s “What you lay down will grow from the ground”.
Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.
