BENEFITING: Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence, Inc.
EVENT: Mudderella New England 2016
EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2016
This will be one of my final "hoorahs" before trying to get pregnant. It's been on my bucket list of things to do and it's a great way to support an amazing cause.
If you want to take part in supporting the fight against violence, please consider donating! Your contributions will specifically support the Asian community. This is near and dear to my heart because I was brought up in a violent home with an abusive dad. It's so important to spread the word about how domestic violence is real and how hard it is, particularly for Asian women, to receive support and help. They need an advocate and they need their voices heard. Too often bruises, emotional pains, and the trauma goes unheard, and there needs to be an avenue for these women to get out and receive tangible help. This organization that I selected will specifically meet the needs of Asian women and work with them in the context of their culture.
Domestic violence is real and "Futures Without Violence" is a national nonprofit that is working to prevent and end domestic violence by developing innovative programs and policies that do the following: 1) support victims, survivors, and their families and help them get to safety 2) educate individuals about the critical roles that we all have to play in promoting healthy relationships 3) promote mutual respect as the foundation of healthy relationships 4) support children who are exposed to violence at home and in school 5) enlist health care providers and health systems to improve domestic violence responses and much more!
Please support the cause and help fight against the violence by donating! THANK YOU in advance!!! :)
