Additional Information


April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month and Dallas Children's Advocacy Center's Save Jane Society, their multigenerational advocacy group, launched a Virtual Pinwheel Scavenger Hunt to help spread awareness and bring community recognition of DCAC’s symbol for hope – the pinwheel.

During social distancing, so many people are walking their neighborhoods to get out of the house and this is a great way to educate the community about DCAC/show support for the children of Dallas County.

For every donation made in the month of April, a virtual pinwheel will be sent to the donor with instructions for how to participate in the scavenger hunt.

To get started they can print, decorate and hang a pinwheel in their own front window or door, before going on a scavenger hunt in their neighborhood to try to find more pinwheels. For each pinwheel found, they can take a photo and post to social media with the hashtag: #PinwheelsofHope and tag @DallasCAC.

There will be several categories for winners announced each week, including Most Colorful Pinwheel and Most Creative Location. To participate, readers can just make a donation of any amount to DCAC at and a link to the instructions will be included with their donation receipt.
