Waynesville, N.C. (April, 2012) — For the month of April K.A.R.E,  Kids Advocacy Resource Effort,  will join thousands of communities throughout North Carolina and the nation in recognizing Child Abuse Prevention Month with a pinwheel garden. The pinwheel is the new symbol of child abuse prevention, representing community efforts to provide children with the safe, stable, nurturing relationships they need for healthy development.  Help KARE’s garden grow with a $5.00 donation. Your donation will plant a Pinwheel at the KARE House and show your community that you support healthy, happy childhoods for all children.

 

“The pinwheel represents the bright future all children deserve,” said Jamie Meyers, Victim Advocate. “It represents our hope that all of the children in our community have the stable, loving relationships they need to become successful adults who contribute to our community.   Communities that support policies and programs that encourage children’s healthy development in all areas of their lives ensure their future prosperity.”
