    How you can help

Jacob Wetterling Resource Center

Be part of the #11forJacob movement

Jacob Wetterling loved sports. His dad coached his soccer team. He wanted to be a football player. He was a skilled hockey goalie. Jacob also believed in a fair and just world, a world where all children know they are special and deserve to be safe.

We ask you to be part of #11forJacob.
This movement centers around 11 simple traits that Jacob valued:

  1. Be fair
  2. Be kind
  3. Be understanding
  4. Be honest
  5. Be thankful
  6. Be a good sport
  7. Be a good friend
  8. Be joyful
  9. Be generous
  10. Be gentle with others
  11. Be positive

Bring #11forJacob to your school, business or organization. Download the poster or flier and share the movement.

Remember and use these traits in your family or organization. Add the number 11 somewhere at your next game, concert or event to show your commitment to making the world a better place for kids and then share with us on social media at #11forJacob or #JacobsHopeLives. See the amazing ways this movement is already spreading, across Minnesota and around the world.
