April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Official Color is Blue

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  The Official color is blue.  On April 10th we ask everyone to wear blue.  For this one day, we ask that you change all of your social media images or icons to blue, to an image of a pinwheel, or to a statement about Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention.  Some cities, counties or states have different days; check locally.

Most importantly pick one day, any day and then let people know why you are wearing blue, let them know why you changed your social media images or icon.  I change mine for the entire month and I post articles and images of pinwheels from around the country for the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign.   Pinwheels for Prevention Official Site  I believe those pinwheels catch the attention and if for only one moment they create an awareness about child abuse.  That one moment may make the difference in the life of one person, or of one child forever.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are the eyes, ears, and voices for children in foster care.  These highly trained individuals are unpaid and often unheralded but they are often one of the most important people in the life of a child in foster care (Along with a caring and dedicated Caseworker).

Even if you are not a CASA please feel free to post the image on your social media and/or include it in your email signature.
