Across Ontario, the month of October was Child Abuse Prevention Month. One of the most physical pieces to represent this campaign is the Purple Ribbon. Purple is the signature colour of Child Abuse Prevention. Throughout October, Quinte Children’s Foundation and Highland Shores Children’s Aid had numerous events and activities raising awareness around this critical issue.
The mission of our “Go Purple!” campaign is to make a difference in the lives of children within our surrounding communities. We want to thank all of you who participated throughout the month of October. Each and every one of you have had a hand in breaking down the stigma that surrounds Child Neglect and Abuse.
