AZLEOS, the Professional Exchange Club of Scottsdale, the Valley of the Sun Exchange Clubs Foundation, and Right Toyota of Scottsdale will team up for the 2016 Blue Ribbon Campaign for child abuse awareness. If you would like to join us in matching the donations…please contact Arizonaleos@cox.net, you can use the form below.
For the past several years the blue ribbon has been widely recognized as a national symbol of child abuse awareness. This movement began in the spring of 1989 – when a concerned grandmother took a stand against child abuse after experiencing the death of her grandson. She tied a symbolic blue ribbon to her van as a signal to her community of her personal commitment to involve everyone in the battle to stop child abuse. The spirit of her blue ribbon grew and it inspired a national effort to join forces in this tragic battle.
Today – the blue ribbon symbolizes the more than 3.2 million abused children reported each year to Child Protective Services (CPS) throughout the United States.
During the month of April – Child Abuse Prevention Month – nearly 1,100 Exchange Clubs and Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Centers conduct a Blue Ribbon campaign in their communities across America.
In recognition of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, AZLEOS is partnering with the Professional Exchange Club of Scottsdale, the Valley of the Sun Exchange Clubs Foundation, and Right Toyota located on Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd in Scottsdale for the sale of Blue Ribbons.

For every $1.00 donated, $4 additional dollars will be given for child abuse prevention. 4x your donation! In April, we could raise $2000 or more for Arizona child abuse centers that support our children and families. You may contact us using the form below.
