Hi, my name is Adaeze Anyanwu and I am a volunteer at the House of Ruth. I am joining the pledge to take a stance against domestic violence.
Please help me in not only bringing awareness to this cause but in helping to raise funds through this fundraiser, to help victims who are trapped within abusive relationships because of the stronghold of financial abuse. Often times victims want to leave the abusive relationship, but the abuser has constructed an environment that makes it difficult for the victim to permanently leave the relationship. The abuser uses power and control through financial abuse by methods such as: causing disruptions at the victim's workplace to the point that the victim is forced to leave their job setting, or worse, the victim gets fired; ruining the victim's credit; taking control of the victim's income so that the victim no longer has direct access to their funds; and by using the victim's credit cards to make purchases without their permission. These are just a few methods that abusers use. Running into these barriers and hardships creates an environment of dependence of the victim towards the abuser. Without money and with ruined credit, how can the victim be #freetowalk ? Often times victims end up staying within the abusive relationship, or leaving then going back to the abuser, due to financial barriers that the victim encountered upon leaving the abuser.
Through the All-State Purple Purse Challenge, your donations will help the House of Ruth empower victims of domestic violence to be in positions of leaving their abusive situation and abuser through empowerment of knowledge and resources such as: financial awareness, learning about healthy relationships, obtaining counseling services, and by providing shelter for victims and their children.
1 in 4 women, 1 in 7 men and 1 in 3 teens will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
Help victims, by supporting the House of Ruth through the Purple Purse Challenge, to end domestic violence. Help us to empower victims to become #freetowalk.
Thank you for your kind and genourous support.
