Pinwheels for a Purpose

THE POWER OF ONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Pinwheels for a Purpose

What if I told you that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys will be sexually abused by age 18…

Pinwheels for a Purpose is an awareness campaign kicked off during April Child Abuse Awareness Month to bring light to the topic of child sexual and physical abuse. The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County and our partners believe we have a responsibility to the community where we live and work. One of the ways we fulfill this responsibility is by investing in the children in the community.

The Power of One Can Make A Difference

While the pinwheel, for the most part, represents fun, the reason for us planting them is serious. Our garden will have 1501 blue pinwheels, each on representing a child who has been forensically interviewed at The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County over the last 12 years as a result of child sexual/physical abuse.

Your donation of $30.00 can help ease the suffering of children who have been abused.

It starts with ONE; one person to be their hope, one person to be their voice, and one person to be their hero. The impact of your generosity – seeing a victimized child being to heal in the safety and comfort of The Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer County is priceless.
