2018 April Child Abuse Prevention Month shirt order form. You’ll notice that along with the regular style t-shirt we have two softer style t-shirts available, including a baseball tee. All shirts are unisex. No shirts will be ordered without payment. Orders will be taken through April 27th. Contact our office at 903-784-5787 for more information on how to order.
Join us in honor of the children served by the center in 2017. We invite everyone to attend and help us plant pinwheels. The pinwheels will remain on display throughout the month of April. The pinwheel serves as a reminder of a happy, safe and carefree childhood, one that every child deserves. The Pinwheel Garden planting will take the place of our annual Hope Floats Balloon Release.
Invite your faith community to get involved by asking your faith leader to share a statistic or story during the service.
§ April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month! Stand Up for Children! We all make a difference when it comes to protecting children. How will you stand up?
- If you want to save the world, start by saving one kid. Learn more at http://www.cacparis.org/index.php/resources
- TALK to your child. Talking about personal safety is an on-going dialogue, not a single event.
- Child abuse can be a difficult topic to talk about. Be brave enough to learn the signs and start the conversation. You are enabling others with the courage needed to speak up. You are changing the world.
The Hope Floats balloon release supports the CAC mission of promoting hope, healing and justice. In spite of bad things that happen to kids, we work so that their hope will always “float”! Here are photos from our 2017 Hope Floats event:
