Go Blue Day in Texas is Friday, April 3, 2020. This is a day that people across the state of Texas will be wearing blue in honor and memory of child abuse victims.
The Fannin County Children’s Center has several blue shirts available for sale for this occasion. Orders can only be placed and paid for on-line at www.fanninccc.org. Short sleeve shirts cost $12 each, long sleeve shirts are $18 each and sweatshirts and hoodies are $20 each. Youth and adult sizes are available in three different designs.
Orders must be placed by March 24 in order to guarantee a shirt in time for Go Blue Day on April 3, 2020. When ordering, there will be an option for free pick up at the Children’s Center after March 30 or pay extra to have the order shipped.
“On Go Blue Day, we hope to once again see lots of photos on social media with people wearing blue in support of victims of child abuse,” said Sandy Barber with the Children’s Center. “Whether they are wearing our shirts or not, we encourage schools, businesses and other organizations to wear blue and take group photos and send them to us so we can share too.”
“Statistics tell us that 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused by their 18th birthday and that many victims wait to tell,” said Barber. “When we wear blue on April 3, we will be sending a message of support to both the victims who have found the courage to tell, as well as the ones who are still silently bearing the trauma of abuse.”
The Fannin County Children’s Center’s mission is promoting safety and improving the lives of abused and neglected children. The agency’s programs include CASA, Children’s Advocacy Center and child abuse prevention classes.
