BENEFITING: Center Against Domestic Violence
ORGANIZER: Center Against Domestic Violence
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2015
Please join me in helping support the good work done by The Center Against Domestic Violence. As many of you are aware, this cause is very near to my heart as I have been witness to the devastating effects domestic violence has on families and communities first-hand. Nearly 1 in 4 women have been the victim of domestic violence in their lifetimes and over 30% of children have witnessed domestic violence in their homes firsthand. It affects people of all races, genders, religions and economic levels, and likely has affected a person you know.
By supporting this challenge you will enable life-changing enpowerment services to help survivors and their families build safer lives.
The Center Against Domestic Violence works toward a society free of violence by offering a range of programs for education, prevention, and intervention. It operates 3 full-service shelters for survivors and their children, provides advocacy and outreach in the greater NYC community, and develops and runs groundbreaking anti-dating violence and anti-bullying education programs for NYC elementary through high school students.
By supporting the Center, you help domestic violence survivors and their children rebuild their lives. Please consider donating or fundraising on behalf of the Center.
