Dose 3 of Period of PURPLE Crying
Due to restrictions of COVID-19, CLICK for Babies will look different this year. Many distribution sites cannot hand out hats. Thanks to generous volunteer participation from previous campaigns, there are enough caps available to provide to hospitals and programs still able to distribute hats during November, December and January. The Prevention Board and some collection site will still accept donated hats, they will get distributed in a future year after COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
Although public awareness about Abusive Head Trauma and the Period of PURPLE Crying will be missed this year, the Prevention Board is still dedicated to spreading awareness about Abusive Head Trauma Prevention. A funding opportunity was recently released designed to reach more hospitals and local agencies to provide the Period of PURPLE Crying to families.
