A Single Blue Ribbon...
A single blue ribbon was hung on a car antenna by a grandmother in memory of her grandson - his battered body found was found in a toolbox at the bottom of Dismal Swamp Canal in Virginia on March 8, 1989. Since then thousands of ribbons have been displayed in many ways to call attention to thousands of abused children.
 
Please wear blue or display your blue ribbon every Wednesday. Tell others why and let them know what they can do to help a child. To report incidences of child abuse please call 855-LA-4KIDS (855-524-5433) or PCALs 800-CHILDREN (800-244-5373).

The first step in helping abused or neglected children is learning to recognize the signs of child abuse and neglect. The presence of a single sign does not prove child abuse is occurring in a family, but a closer look at the situation may be warranted when these signs appear repeatedly or in combination.

If you do suspect a child is being harmed, reporting your suspicions may protect the child and get help for the family. Any concerned person can report suspicions of child abuse and neglect. Some people (typically certain types of professionals) are required by law to make a report of child maltreatment under specific circumstances—these are called mandatory reporters.

For more information about where and how to file a report, contact your local child protective services agency or police department.

An additional resource for information and referral is the Childhelp® National Child Abuse Hotline (1-855-4LA-KIDS) 1-855-452-5437.
