PLF is seeking: Virtual Volunteers
What do our volunteers do? We keep the conversation about cruelty abuse going and never forget its current and past victims.
Skills Needed: Minimum computer skills and a basic understanding of interactive web sites or blogs.
Are you a Blogger, Facebook or Tumblr user type? If so, this is an easy and fulfilling volunteer job to help build awareness about the fight against cruelty abuse, and you can do it from anywhere.
The organization was developed out of an Internet Advocacy Network of web sites called the War On Abuse Movement. This network has 100,000+ people that follow it worldwide and has received over 10,000,000 hits since 2006. The P. Luna Foundation and our volunteers run these web sites/social media sites.
We always need more volunteers to “baby sit” or participate in various interactive web site pages, blogs, etc.
What we are looking for:
- People to run interactive web pages, social media accounts or groups. You will have to answer mail, add friends, keep blogs, whatever you can do.
- Or people who participate in blogs and groups. You will have to post topics or leave comments on blogs, etc.
- People to help us find current child abuse news stories and videos that are going around the world to help us post interesting and current issues about the cause.

“I have been a volunteer for the P. Luna Foundation for almost six years. I have watched the Foundation grow and gain Federal 501(c)3 status. The P. Luna foundation is internet-based and has volunteers assigned various social networking pages to get the word out that abuse is not cool. Within the realm of, “abuse,” we primarily focus on educating the public of the dangers of pedophiles and sex offenders who seek to ensnare victims through social networks such as MySpace and Facebook on the internet by generating awareness with prevention as the outcome. We also have a 501(c)4 lobbyist Organization called Youth Voice Initiative that seeks to stifle the poisonous words and ideas pro-pedophile and pro-sex offenders have on their websites. I am a 20-year law enforcement veteran.
I am also an abuse survivor. I have gotten a great sense of fulfillment volunteering for such a worthy cause.” Doc
“I started volunteering for the PLF when I was in an abusive situation in my own life. By working on the websites and doing research, the caring of Petra and another volunteer I found gave me the strength to leave the abusive situation and get to a place where I have healed from the abuse both physically and emotionally. I had to leave the PLF volunteering while I went through the emotional healing, but I am forever in debt to the PLF friends for the life I have now. By working in the PLF I was able to learn that how I was living was unacceptable and not my fault. I was fighting for online safety and the awareness of male abuse, but I felt at the start I deserved what I was going through. The work with the PLF built up my self esteem as I learn new skills to help the PLF and positive feedback I got raised my self esteem to a point that I was worth more than how I was living.
I have now moved from victim to survivor, and am glad to be back volunteering for the PLF as a survivor. It is a real “family” where we all support each other. The PLF has always been the family I never had. It really is an honor to be able to be a small part of this community that works to stop abuse of all forms.” Sian
“As a survivor of physical abuse as well as bullying as a child, little did I realize the direct impact my past experiences were having on my life, as well as my loved ones. Becoming an advocate for the abused is the best thing that’s ever happened to me in terms of coming to terms with my past, learning to live a more productive and fulfilling life and knowing that I am not alone. Since having the honor of being a part of the P. Luna Foundation and helping others it has helped me to advance my healing process to a whole new level. Not only am I surrounded by much love and support of great people, I have found that by helping others gives me a sense of meaning and purpose in life, above and beyond anything I ever expected.
To know that I am part of a cause so significant gives me peace of mind. I also know at the end of the day that my small contributions actually make a difference! That’s what it’s all about!” Darrell
“I have experienced both sides of the fence with Domestic Violence~ It seems like forever and a day that I was the one who was living in an abusive relationship, who didn’t want to wake up in the morning because I had no idea who I was, just wanting to die rather than be abused. After years of struggling and healing I fought my way back up to live a positive life free from violence for me and my children. I have advocated and helped heal shattered lives of those who live with abuse in their own homes. Now today I have given a fantastic opportunity that brings meaning back to my life, being a volunteer for the PLF has brought me much satisfaction to be in an environment that is proactive towards ending abuse of any shape or form and to know that I can be a part of that is a fantastic feeling! I’ve been there and I know the pain and confusion you live with everyday of your life.
Please know there is hope and support out there, and we are here for you! My wish in anyone reading this, is that they feel a sense of hope and inner strength for themselves that they are more than worthy of living a life free from abuse. Because you ARE worth it and you deserve to be loved and respected~ YES YOU!! Love and Power to you” Ange
