View April 1, 2012 Pinwheels for Prevention Fundraiser status update!

Join us in bringing Pinwheels for Prevention to the Liberal Arts community. The pinwheel is the new symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention nationwide and represents Prevent Child Abuse America's efforts to change the way our nation thinks about prevention, focusing on community activities and public policies that give priority to prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur. Nearly 900,000 pinwheels have been displayed since April 2008. This Spring we're asking College of the Liberal Arts students, faculty and staff to work together to raise $5,000 for Prevent Child Abuse PA.

Pinwheels are available for a suggested donation of $2 per pinwheel; of course you may purchase them in groups of five for $10 or in whatever denomination suits you.  Purchase pinwheels for your office, family, and friends, make a donation--or designate pinwheels to be planted in the Liberal Arts “garden.” The "garden" will be part of a concluding celebration in front of the Sparks Building on Wednesday, April the 18th, 2012 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm.  Mark your calendars for the celebration now, and look for further information closer to the date.  You can also depend on us to give a progress report on the campaign in mid March, and a final report indicating how much was raised.

For more information or to place an order, please contact your building representative (list below) or send an email to Payment (cash or check made out to 'Nicola Kiver') is due with your order. Orders will be taken through Friday, April 13 and pinwheels will be distributed periodically based on order volume.

Thank you for your support.
