April is Prevent Child Abuse Virginia Month. I like this idea of the Pinwheels and would love to put one together at the church. Check this site out: http://www.preventchildabuseva.org/blue_news_2008.htm
Prevent Child Abuse Virginia (PCAV) is proud to introduce the pinwheel as a new symbol for child abuse prevention. This April, PCAV and many of its partners are planting pinwheel gardens in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month. We invite you to visit Prevent Child Abuse Virginia’s Pinwheels for Prevention display at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Henrico County during April. The display is included with regular admission and includes 3,000 pinwheels “planted” along a lake in the Children’s Garden. Each pinwheel represents a child who has been served by our Healthy Families Virginia program during the last year in Central Virginia and Tidewater: www.lewisginter.org
We invite you to plant a pinwheel garden in your community this April: Plant one in your front yard honoring your children; at your church; or in front of a business or community building. Pinwheels may be purchased for $1 each by calling (804) 359-6166 ext. 309. All proceeds benefit Prevent Child Abuse Virginia.
James 1:27, Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
