So far the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign has generated $7,500 in donations! The pinwheel garden is HUGE! Our ultimate goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of April. All support goes directly to our child abuse prevention program.
Pinwheel gardens represent our effort to focus on community activities that support families and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur. Shining in the sun, the pinwheel is reflective of the bright future all children deserve and our belief that getting it right early is less costly than trying to fix it later.
Frederick Douglass said that “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” And it’s true. You cannot give a child back their childhood. You cannot undo trauma once it is experienced, you can only alleviate the harm.
