Dear family and friends,
Last year I came to many of you to ask for your support on an issue I hold very close to my heart. Your support helped the House of Ruth raise awareness about the epidemic of domestic violence and brings vital resources to the many women and children it has affected. This organization continues to advocate for and assist those who have been robbed of their self-esteem, empowerment, and hope for the future by the physical trauma of domestic violence.
Why the Purple Purse? Because not all domestic violence is physical! The primary reason domestic violence survivors stay in an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free--many victims are literally robbed of their personal earnings by their abusers, leaving them with few choices. The Purple Purse Challenge is here to raise awareness about domestic violence and financial abuse! Please partner with me and the House of Ruth to help us end this invisible threat.
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.
I am very passionate about providing assistance to survivors of domestic violence and am asking for your help to support the organization in reaching our goal! There is only a small window, so let’s get busy. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell your community. I know we can do this! Will today be the day that you help make a difference?
Thank you for your continued support. The Lord be with you always,
