Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues,
You all know I am passionate about ending domestic violence. I work for House of Ruth, an agency that gives countless hours of quality services to women, men and children that have suffered from abuse.
Please support my fundraising efforts with a donation to the Purple Purse Challenge! Your gift will help us continue to offer life-saving services to the people who need it most. I know I can count on your generous hearts, as you consider your charitable giving. This is a cause I believe in, and a cause that needs YOUR support.
Domestic violence is a life-threatening epidemic that affects 1 in 4 women in our society. The physical trauma of domestic violence robs women of their self-esteem, empowerment, and hope for their future.
But not all domestic violence is physical. More and more women are being abused through financial means -- many victims are literally robbed of their personal earnings by their abusers, leaving them with few choices but to either stay or return to the abuse.
House of Ruth is dedicated to increasing the safety and well-being of women and children victimized by domestic violence. Your gift towards our fundraising goal of $100,000 during the month of October will help us to expand the conversation about financial abuse and strengthen our programming and advocacy for survivors and their children.
So partner with House of Ruth and help us end the invisible threat of financial abuse as a growing form of domestic violence -- give to our Purple Purse Challenge today!
I really appreciate your support in helping me end domestic violence!
