The Kempe Foundation and Rocky Mountain PBS came together in April to help promote Child Abuse Prevention Month. In addition to running Kempe’s PSA in English and Spanish statewide, PBS also sent Clifford the Big Red Dog to Skyline Park to bring attention to our ribbon tree project.
The Kempe Foundation for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect kicked off April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month with a visual display of 12,000 blue ribbons in a large tree in downtown Denver’s Skyline Park. Each ribbon tail in the installation represented a confirmed case of child abuse and neglect in Colorado in 2011.
Passers-by on the 16th Street Mall enjoyed seeing the familiar PBS character and many wanted to take a photo with him–including an entire quinceanera party!
