Blue April Day
Blue April Day
WHAT IS IT?
Families First created the “Blue April” project as a collaborative effort to recognize National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The goal is to remind the entire community of the role we all play in creating safe, and healthy futures for our community’s children.
Participants donate $5 or more in support of Families First programs that have been preventing child abuse in thousands of families for 33 years.
HOW CAN MY COMPANY JOIN?
Joining is simple. Return the form provided by scanning and emailing it to email@example.com or by mail in the envelope provided. As a participating company, appoint a team captain to collect donations and distribute the information Families First will provide about “Blue April.” Families First will publicize the participating companies on its website and social media. If you donate $5 or more, you will receive a bracelet for your support. Additionally, we encourage all participants to wear blue on Friday, April 21st, to show a unified community effort to build awareness for this cause. Please share your pictures and tag us in social media.
WHY SHOULD MY COMPANY GET INVOLVED?
“Blue April” is not just another cause or fundraiser – it is a movement that can collectively make an enormous difference to our county’s most vulnerable – our children. Child abuse prevention requires community partnerships and this project provides a unique, fun, and inexpensive way to do just that. It also creates an environment of purpose and teamwork within your organization.
WHAT IS FAMILIES FIRST OF PALM BEACH COUNTY?
Families First has successfully been preventing child abuse for 33 years by providing needed services to families whose life circumstances leave them ill-equipped to provide safe and loving homes for their children. By providing services in the areas of child abuse prevention, housing, health and behavioral health, families become stable and self-sufficient. For every child protected from abuse, the community saves $105,000 in future costs of hospitalization, special education, juvenile justice and school failure – all aftermaths of abuse.
