Prevent Child Abuse America launched the national Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign in April 2008. Since then, more than 5 million pinwheels have been displayed nationwide. The campaign symbol, a blue-and-silver pinwheel, is a reminder of the happy childhoods and bright futures that all children deserve. Prevent Child Abuse Virginia adopted the Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign to spread a message of resilience, engage communities and inspire individual action across Virginia.
