Kimberly Cabral founded MASK in August 2007, a non-profit organization.MASK has aligned with experts to inform parents and children on a
variety of issues, including bullying, alcohol and substance use/abuse,
Internet and technology safety, eating disorders, depression, anxiety
and communication. MASK was created by a group of dedicated
mothers who recognized the need to consistently educate parents and
children on issues that are rapidly changing.
MASK is dedicated to bringing awareness throughout our communities,
large and small. All you have to do is pick up the newspaper or listen to
the news to see how kids are being affected. No individual or family is
immune. The key is to educate families so when issues do arise, they will
be more equipped to deal with them. Preparing and empowering children
early will place them on a positive track that will lead to healthy decisions.
In our time-deprived society, how do parents keep up? MASK
recognizes that awareness and prevention begin at home, and should
be reinforced within schools and the community. MASK The Magazine
will conveniently bring a comprehensive approach to educating families
on the severity and risk factors of relevant issues. MASK The Magazine
takes pride in fostering parent-child communication as they grow and
will provide successful strategies to encourage ongoing dialogue. This
publication will equip and prepare families with appropriate knowledge,
resources and decision-making skills to empower parents and youth to
make safe, healthy choices.
