San Diego, California (PRWEB) August 7, 2005
Back-to-School demand and burgeoning concerns about the safety of children is quickly converting Safersurfers.org from a fledgling Internet safety site to an International resource. The site, used by thoudands of parents, parent organizations, libraries, teachers, school administrators and students, is a comprehensive resource set up to help protect everyone on the Internet. Safersurfers.org has addressed problems that until now may have gone undetected by parents in a home with Internet access. With original insights on Internet predators, chat room 'slang', and common mistakes made by children on the Internet, http://www.safersurfers.org has quickly become a leader in Internet Safety expertise.
In addition to providing as a Internet-safety resource, Safersurfers has begun offering free print materials, including Internet safety quizzes, family agreements, and a very frank Internet safety brochure geared toward young teens. In addition, the site is distributing free Internet Safety Wristbands throughout the United States. These wristbands, similar to the ones made popular by Lance Armstrong's 'Livestrong' campaign, will soon be found on thousands of middle schoolers' wrists.
"I have found that http://www.safersurfers.org is one of the most comprehensive free online resources for protecting children from the dangers of the internet." said Michelle Beck, Region Director for the Nevada PTA. Beck is among scores of PTA Presidents using http://www.safersurfers.org to promote Internet Safety to their local students, parents and schools.
For additional information on this release (or for a sample of print or promotional materials), contact Brett West or visit http://www.safersurfers.org. Print and promotional materials are available to all schools, educators, PTOs and PTAs while supplies last.
Safersurfers.org is a non-profit organization, dedicated to promoting Internet safety through education and awareness. The organization was founded in the spring of 2005, and is currently seeking partnerships and sponsorships in order to expand its programs Internationally.
