Elder Abuse Awareness Day

June 15, 2011

 

NCPEA is proud to participate in the 6th annual “World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.” To mark the occasion, NCPEA is releasing an exclusive song by musician Jeff Beam, written to help spread the word about elder abuse.  Titled “Can’t You Feel The Curve of the Earth?”, the song serves as a wake-up call about the widespread problem of elder abuse.  The song is available on NCPEA’s home page, as well as at http://ncpeajeffbeam.bandcamp.com.  You can own an MP3 of the song for a minimum donation of $1 to NCPEA, to support our work in fighting elder abuse.  Donors contributing $20 or more will receive a special NCPEA/World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2011 wristband, as well as a Certificate of Caring. Please help us share this song, and with it, the message of preventing elder abuse.
