The NightLights Tree has become an icon in the center for Fort Collins with over 30,000 blue lights, as blue is the Internationally recognized color of Child Abuse Prevention. Each light on the tree is a symbol of light and hope in the dark life of a child who has experiences abuse or neglect or who is at-risk right now. The NightLights tree is an active outreach for Realities For Children, as community members are asked to please consider sponsoring a light on the NightLights Tree any time through the end of the year for just $100 per light.

Visit GiveANightLight.com for more information or to sponsor a light.
