Preventing Child Abuse One Pinwheel at a Time

After the events of the fall, child abuse has certainly become an issue close at heart to many Penn Staters. I’m sure many of us wanted to do something in the fall but weren’t really sure what to do. Well here is an opportunity to do something and help prevent child abuse.

Pinwheels for Prevention is an effort started by Prevent Child Abuse America and brought to Penn State by the College of the Liberal Arts and Paterno Fellows Program. The idea is to sell pinwheels to raise money to help prevention efforts and display them in order to raise awareness of child abuse.

So far we have been selling pinwheels for $2 each to donate to the pinwheels garden we are creating on April 18th in front of Sparks Building. You may have seen us in the HUB last week. We will be there again at Table #8 on April 16th and 17th from 11am-2pm.
So far, between the faculty and students we have raised over $2,500 but hope to reach $5,000 by the 18th for our event. So that means we need some help!

If you wish to get involved or donate to Pinwheels, please e-mail us!

Look for us on Facebook for event information about the upcoming Pinwheels for Prevention Pinwheel garden. More about that on the CLA website.

We have some other exciting news too: We’re having some additional fundraiser’s this week for Pinwheels for Prevention! Our first was today, but on Thursday (4/12), come out for some dessert at Coldstone on Beaver Ave from 5-9pm. Be sure to mention Pinwheels for Prevention to help prevent child abuse while eating! Can’t get much easier than that. :)

Make sure to tell your friends too!
