LifeHouse's Pinwheel Protector Campaign

LifeHouse's first ever Pinwheel Protector Campaign is happening now! The campaign, which kicked off October 19th, 2020, is happening through November 5th, 2020. 

We want to thank our sponsors for helping us make this campaign happen! Evergy, Security Benefit and the Shawnee County District Attorney's office!

The pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention, and serves as a physical reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. By its nature, the pinwheel exudes playfulness, joy and childhood.  Unfortunately, too many children are robbed of this feeling and have been a victim of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse or witnessed violent crime. 

Our goal is to raise awareness and much needed funds to continue providing services to child victims in our community.  We have created 279 pinwheels, one for each child who received a forensic interview at LifeHouse in 2019, and placed them on our front window.  The pinwheels completely cover our oversized window! 

During the Pinwheel Protectors Campaign you can help us clear our window and help protect kids!  It’s super easy, buy a pinwheel and it will be removed from the window. Pinwheels are $20 apiece.  We have 279 available so buy as many as you want! To purchase your pinwheel(s) you can call or email LifeHouse, make a donation through Facebook, or mail a check directly to LifeHouse. 

For those who purchase pinwheels, LifeHouse staff invites you to come remove your pinwheel(s) yourself if you’d like!  And of course we would love to share it with a photo and a shout out to you on Facebook!   We will be doing this on Fridays from 12:00-1:00 or by appointment only so call or email LifeHouse if you are interested. 

We also have matching opportunities!  If you would like to match some pinwheels yourself, or in honor of someone, contact us for further details or to provide your information.  We have a special “Match” wall to acknowledge your gift! 

Follow along on Facebook now through November 5 and watch how supporters clear our window!  Also, make sure to check in on our Facebook live over the lunch hour every Friday for updates and to watch our pinwheel protectors take down child abuse!  #PinwheelProtectors #PinwheelProtectorsCampaign
