Prevent Child Abuse Oregon is proud to announce the launch of our 2019 Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign. We have big goals this year and to kick us off, we’re having an Early Bird Special!
Pinwheels for Half the Price
Pinwheels for Prevention® is a nationwide public awareness campaign first launched by Prevent Child Abuse America in 2008. The campaign features a blue pinwheel to represent the healthy and carefree childhoods we believe every child deserves. Since the campaign began, nearly 900,000 pinwheels have been displayed nationwide.
This year our goal is to 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. We also want to encourage each person to recognize that small actions, every day, that can help us create great childhoods for every child.
To help us reach this goal, we’re having an early bird special from now until noon on February 22nd. For orders of pinwheel cases (240) we’re offering half price- 50 cents per pinwheel! If you need to order a different amount, we’re offering them for 75 cents each to account for repackaging and shipping.
We hope you will join our campaign and help spread the word so that we can send a strong message this April, that Oregon is a place that cherishes and celebrates its children and families.

We all love the idea of child abuse prevention, but sometimes it can be hard to fully grasp what it is, or how to do it. If you want a better understanding of prevention, watch the first 8 minute of this video featuring Jerry Milner, Associate Commissioner of the Children’s Bureau.
This video from the Capacity Building Center for Courts featuring Jerry Milner, Associate Commissioner of the Children’s Bureau, discussing the importance of proactively preventing child maltreatment and investing in the capacity of parents to keep their children safe rather than disproportionately investing in supports and services, such as foster care, after children have already suffered maltreatment.
Prevent Child Abuse Oregon is proud to partner with organizations across the state to advocate this legislative session for programs and policies that we know will lead to stronger families and safer, healthier kids.
