Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Materials
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a special time when those of us who care about children can help raise awareness about child abuse and neglect and what we can all do to keep our children safe. Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin is a resource that can support awareness activities in your community, during April and throughout the year.
The Blue Ribbons for Kids awareness campaign was created through a private-public partnership between Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin, the Child Abuse Prevention Fund of Children's Hospital and Health System, and the Wisconsin Children's Trust Fund. Through this partnership we are pleased to make available materials that you can use to help keep kids safe and families strong. Visit www.blueribbonsonline.org
for everything you need to carry out a successful awareness campaign, from blue ribbon pins and stickers to bookmarks and posters. On the Blue Ribbons for Kids website you'll find press releases, project ideas, planning tips, and much more. Many of the awareness campaign materials can be downloaded free of charge, while other items are available for a small fee to cover costs. We think you'll be pleased by what Blue Ribbons for Kids has to offer - Visit www.blueribbonsonline.org
The Blue Ribbon Campaign was started in 1989 by a Virginia grandmother, Bonnie Finney, whose grandson died tragically from child abuse. The blue ribbon serves as a visible reminder and is a great way for your organization to promote awareness in your community. Visit www.blueribbonsonline.org for information about ordering blue ribbon pins.
Pinwheels for Prevention
Prevent Child Abuse America and its state chapters, including Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin, are using the Pinwheel as a national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. The Pinwheel was chosen to represent the hope and promise that every child deserves to be raised in a healthy, safe and nurturing environment.
The Pinwheel is a happy and uplifting symbol of childhood and allows us to celebrate children and families. Pinwheels are fun. the image of child and parents playing reflect an image of positive parent-child interactions.
