Wear Blue to Promote Child Abuse Awareness in Delaware!
Every April during Child Abuse Prevention Month, Prevent Child Abuse state chapters throughout the country band together on a designated day and Wear Blue as a visible commitment to support child abuse prevention month.
Friday April 17th is Wear Blue Day in Delaware!
In the spring of 1989, a grandmother from Virginia began the blue ribbon campaign as a tribute to her grandson, a three-year old who died at the hands of his mother’s abusive boyfriend. Since that time, concerned citizens all over the country have worn blue as a symbol of the need to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Prevent Child Abuse Delaware (PCAD) invites you to partner with us to help raise awareness about child abuse prevention by participating in Wear Blue Day 2015.
One person can make a difference, and it can start with you.
Wear Blue…invite your school, your friends, your family, and your entire office to Wear Blue, too.
Will you take a stand against child abuse and Wear Blue on April 17th?

The pinwheel serves as the national symbol for child abuse prevention. A pinwheel represents the whimsical notion of childhood, and reminds us that every child deserves the chance at having a healthy and happy childhood, free of abuse and neglect.
This April, during Child Abuse Prevention Month, PCAD is calling on all schools and organizations in Delaware to plant pinwheel gardens in honor of all children in their communities. Your pinwheel garden can be planted any time during the month, it can be large or small…it will be your creative masterpiece!
Help us spread the message about the power of prevention through this visual recognition of pinwheels in the community. Please contact Lynn Haggerty Wong, Director of Advancement via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 302.425.7490 for more information about how to get pinwheels for your April garden!
A pinwheel needs wind to move. With our actions to prevent child abuse, we can be that wind.
