Plant Pinwheels for Prevention
Plant a Pinwheel Garden
Show your community you support children’s healthy development with a pinwheel garden this April!
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.
Pinwheels are increasingly being used to help educate communities about the importance of supporting children and families. 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.
We invite you to join us in showing your support for the great childhoods all children deserve by planting a pinwheel garden in your community.
Ways to Use Pinwheels
- Plant a Pinwheel Home Kit (with 24 pinwheels and a yard sign) in your own front yard, in front of your child’s school, at your work, or in your neighborhood.
- Display pinwheels in vases on front desks at your organization.
- Plant pinwheels in flower pots or planters if you don’t have any green space to use!
- Make pinwheels into another display – think a wreath for a door or a hanging display in your window!
Pinwheels for Prevention Official Site
Prevent Child Abuse America started the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign in 2008 to create a national effort to change the public’s beliefs and behaviors regarding child abuse and neglect prevention. The pinwheel represents our efforts to change the way our nation thinks about prevention, focusing on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.
