Help Paint Waco Blue 2013

This year's Paint Waco Blue Campaign has been a real learning experience and a successful fundraising campaign for our local Family Abuse Center.  To expand the campaign next year I am looking for donors/sponsors who would be willing to purchase pinwheels for one, of not multiple PinWheel gardens next year.
According to the official Pinwheels for Prevention site:
Join us in preventing the abuse and neglect of our nation's children by participating in Pinwheels for Prevention™, Prevent Child Abuse America's campaign introducing the pinwheel as the new symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention nationwide.

The pinwheel represents Prevent Child Abuse America's efforts to change the way our nation thinks about prevention, focusing on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.

Nearly 900,000 pinwheels have been displayed since April 2008. Join us by bringing Pinwheels for Prevention to your community!
This program is something that I would be very excited to add to our campaign next year. 
In addition Paint Waco Blue will be participating in the National House Party Weekend in October.  This is a national fundraising program in which the host opens up their home or venue for an event of their choosing.  I am planning a Dinner and Games with friends event either at my home or the Erath building.  The way funds are raised is that participants are asked to either pay a set cover charge or make a donation to the cause.  I have set a $500 goal for Paint Waco Blue.

Keep brainstorming with me and we can make the 2013 Paint Waco Blue one for the history books!!!
