Good morning PACEs Connection!

One of the ways our local community is working to raise awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is through an upcoming week-long awareness campaign in November. We are collaborating with Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) through various media campaigns and we need YOUR HELP!

We would like to get brief testimonials of positive childhood experiences. They can be:

20-30 second video clips of you, friends, or family (that would like to participate), answering the following questions:

  1. Who has had the greatest positive impact in your life and why?
  2. What is your happiest childhood memory?
  3. What did you want the most from the adults in your life growing up / What do you want the most from the adults in your life?

OR you can you can share your experiences as written responses via the following link:

If you choose video, here are the parameters:

  • 20-30 second responses!!
  • All videos should be horizontal.
  • All ages are welcome to participate: 2 yrs old and over! (or if they can talk sooner, lol)
  • When you start the video, use 5 seconds at the beginning to state which question someone is answering.

Written responses can be "Anonymous" or you can choose to provide your name.

Attached is the Florida Department of Health Photo & Video Release Form. This must be signed and dated by each person (or parent/guardian) before you record them to ensure their consent is documented.

Please email your videos to

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you,

Great idea, Rebecca!

Once you’ve posted them on the Healthy Charlotte site, text me the link and I’ll β€œclone” this to the Florida site and the SE Communities site.

I love that you all are looking for positive childhood experiences (PCEs). PCEs are protective and preventive. And we need to celebrate them. Prevent trauma and heal trauma, yes! And celebrate safe, stable, nurturing environments, people, places, memories.

Thanks for all your work!

Thank you, Carey! I really felt it was important to start highlighting how even as adults, we remember those positive events and people in our lives. Hopefully it will help show that no act of kindness is in vain, especially for a child's mind.

I just posted it to the Healthy Charlotte page. I'm not the best at navigating the site but I will try and see how I can forward it to you. Thank you for your help!!!
