Prevent Child Abuse Florida encourages Floridians to take action on behalf of children during Child Abuse Prevention Month
(Tallahassee, FL)–Prevent Child Abuse Florida urges all Floridians to participate in Wear Blue Day – a day dedicated to honoring child abuse prevention efforts across the country – on Friday, April 5th.
“April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Wear Blue Day allow us to highlight our partnerships with organizations, businesses and individuals across Florida and to bring awareness to child abuse prevention efforts,” said Chris Lolley, Executive Director of Prevent Child Abuse Florida.
Inspire others to get involved during Child Abuse Prevention Month by taking these steps:
- Wear blue on April 5th and tell people you are participating in a national day to highlight child abuse prevention
- Take a picture of yourself and your colleagues dressed in blue and share it on your favorite social media platform using #WearBlue
- Share a story of how you help mentor children, advocate for policies that keep kids safe, or donate time or money to a local child serving organization
“We encourage everyone in Florida to follow #WearBlue on Twitter and Facebook to see how they can get involved during Child Abuse Prevention month,” said Lolley.
This year, Prevent Child Abuse America will use #WearBlueDay to highlight ways that people can prevent child abuse by mentoring, donating or becoming advocates in their community. Prevent Child Abuse America will be using their social media channels to explain how those actions connect to child abuse prevention and highlight stories and snapshots of people around the country who helping great childhoods happen in their community.
