EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge 2015
I have devoted the last eight years of my life to fighting domestic violence. And, while we have made much progress over the past four decades, there is still so much to do. One out of three women -- our sisters, our daughters, our mothers -- will experience domestic violence or abuse in her lifetime. Domestic violence kills is the second leading cause of death of pregnant women and three women each day are killed at the hands of their intimate partners. It remains an epidemic in our country, and beyond. You can do something now, though. PLEASE donate to HopeWorks Purple Purse Fundraiser. The money raised will make a difference in the lives of women, children, and communities.
HopeWorks provides services that are critical to the safety, dignity, and autonomy of hundreds of women in the community where we, and our children, live. Domestic violence and domestic abuse cross cultural, socio-economic, and race lines. Please support Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this fabulous organization.
Thank you so much.
