Join Pinwheels for Prevention 2020

Posted by: Pamela Heisler Tags: There is no tags | Categories: Uncategorized


Pinwheels for Prevention® is a nationwide public awareness campaign first launched by Prevent Child Abuse America in 2008. The campaign features a blue and silver pinwheel to represent the healthy and carefree childhoods we believe every child deserves. Since the campaign began, over 5 million pinwheels have been displayed nationwide.

After a successful campaign last year, PCAO is primed to take the campaign in Oregon to the next level. During the month of April, PCAO and champions across all 36 counties will turn the state blue and silver.

We want businesses, schools, libraries, churches, and parks to celebrate the great work happening across our state to strengthen families. Ordinary people, just like us, have the power to make a huge impact on the wellbeing of Oregon’s children. 

Our Goals:
30,000 Pinwheels displayed
100 “Champions” Participating  – Individuals, organizations, or businessesPinwheel gardens or other activities in all 36 counties
Support new parents through a partnership with Healthy Families Oregon (exciting announcement coming soon!)

To help us reach this goal, pledge to be a Champion for the campaign by completing our all-in-one 2020 Commitment & Order Form. If you need pinwheels, place your pinwheel order on the 2nd page of the form. If not, just submit the Commitment Form and continue planning!

Ordering pinwheels is not required – join the campaign even if you are reusing pinwheels from a previous year, not using pinwheels, or found pinwheels elsewhere.
