The Big Turn Off
The Big Turn Off is scheduled for the second Wednesday in January which is January 10, 2023. This annual event is asking citizens to turn off their television for three hours during the prime-time segment of programming, to protest TV violence. The average child, watching the average amount of television, will witness 200,000 acts of violence by age 18. The goal of  Big Turn Off is to empower people to object to what they find offensive and send a message that promotes non-violent programming.

Kids Wish Network’s
Hero of the Month Program
Kids Wish Network selects our kid heroes for their positivity and ability to overcome adversities by inspiring others. Some of the Hero program’s automatic qualifiers include children between the ages of 3 and 18 (nominated by the age of 17) who are grieving the loss of a sibling, parent (legal guardians as well), or who have a parent undergoing cancer treatment. They reward qualifying Heroes with a generous retail gift card, Hero bear, Hero shirt, and a certificate to honor their bravery.
