Save the Children Statement on use of its Name in Unaffiliated Campaigns

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (August 7, 2020) –Save the Children is an international humanitarian organization that has been protecting children around the world for over 100 years. Save the Children has been fighting against the exploitation of, and violence against, children since our inception. Ensuring the safety and well-being of children worldwide has always been our most essential commitment, and will be so always.

In the United States, Save the Children is the sole owner of the name “Save the Children” which is a registered trademark. While many people may choose to use our organization’s name as a hashtag to make their point on different issues, we are not affiliated or associated with any of these campaigns.

And while Save the Children does work to combat child trafficking through prevention, protection, and prosecution, we are not the leading organization in this field. We encourage everyone to learn more about organizations dedicated solely to fighting child trafficking here in the United States like Polaris, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, National Runaway Safeline, and Rights4Girls.
