Dads and Daughters Shuts Down

Pretty much any involved dad with daughters has been aware, in some shape or form, of the outstanding advocacy group Dads and Daughters. Dads and Daughters has -- as long as I've been a parent -- been a fantastic advocate on a huge number of issues, helping families use the unique power of the father-daughter bond to strengthen relationships and raise strong, confident women.

So it is with great sadness that the group has announced it is shutting its door for lack of money:
Despite our success, we have not raised the funds needed for our work. The reason that DADs must close may be the same reason that DADs needs to exist: the importance of fathers and stepfathers in the lives of daughters is little valued by our culture.
Directly and indirectly, Dads and Daughters has ushered in a new age in which society has begun to recognize the importance of fathers as parents, and it's a shame that they'll have to close their doors. I wish Joe Kelly, who founded the group, the best of luck in his next endeavor.
