PINWHEELS FOR PREVENTION
How have you helped children in your life have a great childhood?
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and throughout April, we celebrate the lives of children we touch and those who have touched ours by honoring them with a pinwheel.
A pinwheel is the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve. The pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. It has come to serve as the physical reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children because our children are our future.
