PRLog - Aug. 18, 2012 - ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- Blackout Child Abuse announces it's release of the official website for Blackout Child Abuse. The Organization was the idea of Joe Swantack, Sean Carey and Robert Fitzgerald. The three were discussing business ideas when Joe Swantack, CEO of Spirit Pen Promotions and No More Tan Lines, mentioned his interest in charitable work.

"I told the guys (Bob Fitzgerald and Sean Carey) I wanted to do something about child abuse. We had all mentioned in conversation about it and I thought we need to find a way to do more than just talk." Swantack said. "These guys just jumped right in."

When asked what his response was Carey told us, "I just thought of the eye black the athletes use. It looks like a black eye. I thought it would be a great way for kids to relate to the players and not feel ashamed. I work with athletes and I know these guys have hearts of gold. It was a no no–brainer."

Bob Fitzgerald recalls, "It was my idea to call it Blackout Child Abuse. They called it blackout when I played football as a kid and it seemed catchy. If people can't remember the name of your cause it can fade away. We met with some criticism over the name at first, but the idea is to turn a negative into a positive."

That was back in October of last year, since this team has added some key players. REAL key players like Clark Haggans of the Arizona Cardinals and Liz Gorman of the Tampa Breeze. It's not just the athletes either, fans are getting involved such as Shelby Kelly of Spirit Star Hat fame and the Flame Brothers Jimmy Key (a.k.a. “Blaze”) and Jonathan Key (a.k.a. “Inferno”). Shelby is a Cowboys Superfan and Jimmy and Jonathan are Titans Superfans.

The launch of the website is here to let people know about the official site. The team says they are just trying to alleviate some confusion as the sponsorships and participation is growing.

Next we will be talking to the team about their Mission Statement, but that is for another time.
