Evolution of the CAN Man

The CAN Man is the symbol and official logo of Child Advocacy’s Child Abuse and Neglect (CAN) Prevention Programming. Our CAN Man was created in 2009 by Chris Brown, an Art Instructor at Alma High School. Over the years, Chris has volunteered his time to making new versions of the CAN Man as our fundraisers and programs have changed.

This collage showcases the CAN Man in his many forms, from his original smiling stance, to running in our first  5K races, wearing a cape for the superhero 5k , spinning a basketball at the Alumni basketball fundraiser, to his latest form, holding a baby for our new program, the Baby Pantry.

Child Advocacy would like to thank Chris for all of the time and creative energy that he’s put into the CAN Man logo. Every time we have needed a new logo, Chris has taken our idea and brought it to life. You’ll find all variations of the CAN Man on Child Advocacy t-shirts, signs, flyers, and brochures. The CAN Man has become a recognizable symbol in our community for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Awareness of our CAN Prevention Programming allows us to serve more families, which in turn helps to create a safer, healthier, and happier community.

Thank you again to Chris Brown!
