OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Project Harmony hosted Be Someone Day on Sunday, where people were challenged to take 10 seconds to make a difference in the life of a child.

The day was founded as a way to help end child abuse.

A report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds, and Project Harmony says to be prepared to report abuse after a child tells you the story of how they’ve been hurt.

“This is an all-year thing,” said Angela Roeber, Director of Communications at Project Harmony. “We want people to be recognizing, understanding, paying attention--that it is our responsibility if we’re truly going to end child abuse and neglect. It takes the whole community coming together."

Former Husker football players Josh Banderas and Brandon Reilly--who now plays for the Detroit Lions--stopped by Project Harmony Sunday to help collect donations.
