As promised yesterday, here are some more highlights of what we did this Father's Day to promote our work of connecting fathers to their children, heart to heart.
  • We released the sixth edition of our flagship research resource, Father Facts. This story from The Washington Times puts Father Facts in the context of the fatherhood news of the day. Father Facts 6, like all previous editions of Father Facts, has been distributed to key members of Congress, government officials, and members of the press. You can learn more about Father Facts 6 and order it here.

  • NFI president, Roland C. Warren, spoke on a panel at the HBO premiere of The Kids Grow Up, a documentary about a dad learning to let go of his daughter as she leaves for college. NFI was an official non-profit partner for the film. The documentary aired on HBO on Father's Day, and will air again tonight at 9:30 eastern. If you want to see it, but don't have HBO, buy the DVD and a portion of the sales will go to NFI!

  • We launched our new "Be a Dad" television PSA (public service advertisement). Be a Dad inspires fathers to spend time with their children. Be a Dad has been distributed to virtually every TV station in the country, so look out for it on your local stations. In fact, if you see Be a Dad on TV, send us an email and let us know which station you saw it on (we may send you a free book or something if you do this).
That about does it for the major stuff we did this Father's Day. But as you can imagine, pretty much every day is like Father's Day here at NFI. And we have a lot of work to do to ensure that every child grows up with an involved, responsible, and committed father, every day of the year.

If you are able, please consider supporting us financially to help us continue this important work. And keep checking in with us here, on Twitter, and on Facebook as we roll out all of our new projects over the next several months.

Thanks for your support!
