My Next Project, Pinwheels  

Image: Prevent Child Abuse

We leave Hazel tomorrow in Chicago to go back to Miami. I hate leaving the team after bonding with cast members and their families. It was like one big family circle.

We stay in Miami till Monday. Then we fly very early to New York where we start a new project  that involves thousands of pinwheels being displayed in Times Square next Tuesday as a national symbol to help prevent child abuse. 

This is what we sent to the press: 

MEDIA ALERT 
  

Prevent Child Abuse America and hundreds of volunteers will be displaying thousands of pinwheels – the national symbol for great childhoods – in Times Square at 9:00am ET on Tuesday, April 12, 2016.

The Times Square pinwheel event is one of hundreds being held nationally throughout April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month by Prevent Child Abuse America state chapters. The pinwheels stand as a call-to-action that we all play a role when it comes to the future of our nation’s children.
Prevent Child Abuse America is the leading organization working solely to prevent child abuse and neglect from occurring in the first place. The organization achieves that mission through its 50-state chapter network, Healthy Families America program serving more than 80,000 families annually, and national advocacy and awareness efforts.

“The American dream starts with a happy, healthy childhood,” said Dan Duffy, President and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse America. “Every child deserves a great childhood, and we all play a role in making sure this goal is realized.”

“A great childhood starts with an investment in families,” said Tim Porter, Vice-President, Membership, Foresters Financial. “For more than 140 years, Foresters Financial has been more than a financial services provider. We’re dedicated to helping families prosper and build stronger communities. That’s why we’re proud to support Prevent Child Abuse America, and this exciting event that helps us bring our purpose to life.”

I will let you know if we get any hits. If you know anyone who can help with our efforts, please contact us. You know this is an important cause.

Thank you

  1. That’s awesome! I have used blue pinwheels over the years to display at elementary schools to spread the “stop child abuse ” message too
