What is the Pinwheel Challenge? It’s your chance to spread awareness and joy as people stay home to combat coronavirus pandemic. The Pinwheel Challenge is one of many ways to raise awareness and show your support for McMahon Ryan during National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April.
We are asking you to download one or all of the pinwheels below, print it out, color it and place it in a window of your home. While people are on their daily walks, they can see your pinwheel and hopefully this will encourage them to spread awareness as well.
While downloading pinwheels to print is free, we strongly encourage you to donate $2 per pinwheel to help end child abuse and neglect in Onondaga County. It shouldn’t hurt to be a child and we need your help to continue to heal those who hurt in our community.
Why pinwheels? The blue pinwheel is the national symbol of child abuse and neglect prevention. It stands as an uplifting reminder that all children deserve a happy childhood and future.
Download your pinwheels here and don’t forget to take a picture of your pinwheel, tag us on social media @mcmahonryancac and use the #PinwheelChallenge hashtag!
