BENEFITING: Futures Without Violence
For my birthday, I have selected FUTURES WITHOUT VIOLENCE (5 star rating on charity navigator!!) for you all to donate your $$. In the wake of all of the domestic violence, I wanted to bring awarness to this cause.
For more than three decades, Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund has worked to end violence against women and children around the world. Futures Without Violence works to prevent violence within the home, and in the community, to help those whose lives are devastated by violence because everyone has the right to live free of violence. Instrumental in developing the landmark Violence Against Women Act passed by Congress in 1994, Futures Without Violence has continued to break new ground by reaching new audiences including men and youth, promoting leadership within communities to ensure that violence prevention efforts become self-sustaining, and transforming the way health care providers, police, judges, employers and others address violence.
