April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Colonial Flag Foundation has joined forces with many child abuse prevention organizations to help end child abuse. Each year approximately 3 million children are reported as abused in the U.S. – sadly, that number is growing.
The Colonial Flag Foundation has raised over $42 million dollars to help charities through its Healing Field® and Field of Honor® flag display events. Now, for the first time, it is hosting a Virtual Healing Field® flag display to raise funds to end child abuse and give the victims of abuse more resources.
Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display Program
Beginning on April 1st through April 30th, 2019 Colonial Flag Foundation and its partners Operation Underground Railroad and the National Exchange Club will launch in a national effort the first Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display where individuals across the country can stand together in a united effort against child abuse.
For a $5 donation, individuals, churches, businesses and organizations can sponsor a flag. Sponsored flags will be flown on our Virtual Map to raise funds while at the same time inspiring others and show support in ending child abuse.
Flags may be posted ‘in memory’ of someone and may include a short bio or a short message.
Please take advantage of this unique opportunity and spread the word with your audience.

Sixteen years since that first flag display, his idea has taken off with hundreds of cities and organizations nationwide.
“You can see the power of the field when you watch people touch the flags,” said Swenson, now 62 and chairman of the Colonial Flag Foundation, a nonprofit that helps cities and community groups nationwide create “healing fields” of their own for Patriot Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and the Fourth of July.
