Symbology in Child Abuse Prevention Month: Pinwheels

In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America declared the pinwheel as the national symbol for child abuse prevention through the campaign, Pinwheels for Prevention. Pinwheels symbolize the notions of playfulness, joy, and childhood. It serves as a reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. The cyclical nature of the pinwheel depicts positive cycles of love and support we want to help families create. Although these unprecedented times prevent us from physically gathering, you can still participate and plant a pinwheel in a virtual garden! Raise awareness and financially support communities all over the country to enforce safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments for children and families to thrive. (this is the link to the garden).
