April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and a group of girls are volunteering to be popular characters, mostly disney princesses, and read books every Tuesday and Thursday of the month to children about manners and etoquette. Samantha, her sister Catherine, and her mother Kelly Villa-Lobos organize each event and make the jewelry and costumes for the Disney princesses.

“Family advocacy’s mission is to prevent, assess, and treat child abuse,” Kelly Villa-Lobos said. “And so what we’re trying to do is teach parents how to have good quality time with their children, and to enjoy their children.”

Disney has strict copyright laws when it comes to displaying characters and performing. However, during the pandemic, they allowed people to use the characters at home as long as nothing is recorded. Sammy had to go through the copyright laws to see if they were able to livestream the storytimes.

“We are looking into having both a princess brunch and superhero brunch at this time next year. We originally had it planned for last year as well as this year but due to COVID, it was cancelled,” Samantha said. “We are also looking into tea parties with the princesses, as well as picnics during the summer.”

So far, the characters the characters they have are: Rapunzel, Tiana, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel Cinderella, Belle, the Fairy Godmother, Mary Poppins, Ariel, Wanda Maximoff.

They are still looking for volunteers to play characters other than disney princesses, like Tinkerbell and her friends, as well as male volunteers (the Disney princes, Iron Man, etc.). They would also like volunteers to help with building their website. If you want to volunteer or have any questions you can contact Sammy at [email protected].
