Go Blue 4 Kids

go blue 4 kids ways to go blue2In 1989, a grandmother from Virginia began the blue ribbon campaign as a tribute to her 3 year old grandson who died at the hands of his mother's abusive boyfriend. Since then, concerned citizens all over the country have worn blue as a symbol to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Why Blue? Why Pinwheels? The blue pinwheel serves as the national symbol for child abuse prevention representing a happy and healthy childhood.
