By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions - it has come to serve as a reminder of the safe, stable, and nurturing childhoods we want for all children. It is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. 

The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve.

Illuminate Colorado, the Colorado Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, leads the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign for Colorado. The campaign began in Colorado in 2009 and has progressively expanded across the state. Co4kids is proud to partner with Illuminate Colorado to help prevent child abuse in Colorado. 

Visit for more ways to get involved from ordering free pinwheels to wearing blue for child abuse prevention to helping your favorite Colorado nonprofit, school or child care provider receive a $2,500 grant.

Join Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Campaign Partners to launch National Child Abuse Prevention Month in Colorado on April 1, 2022.

Communities across the nation and Colorado are planting pinwheel gardens and wearing blue as a sign of our collective commitment to prioritizing children and families.
