Elena, the 7-year-old daughter of a N. California Fathers and Families member, wrote Santa and told him this Christmas she wants flowers, earrings, and a puppy. But #1 on her list was “custady pappers that says I can see my dad more oftan.”

Elena has been separated from her dad without justification, by a family court system that simply does not respect dads.

Fathers and Families is fighting to restore respect in this society for all that you do as fathers. The love you shower on your children, the long hours you work on their behalf, the sacrifices you make to protect them.

Please give to treat mothers and fathers as equally important to the well-being of their children.

Shared parenting across America is the biggest step we, as a society, can take to improve the lives of our children. Our children need us. They long for us. We are in their hearts.

Please give today to improve the lives of our children.

All I want for the holidays is shared parenting in every state. Give to make shared parenting the norm in America.

For the love of our children,

Ned Holstein, MD, MS
Founder and Chairman of the Board

Glenn Sacks, MA
Executive Director
