I am proud to represent Between Friends in the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge 2016!
About ten years ago, I met a mother who shared her harrowing seven year struggle to leave her abusive husband with her four children. I was just beginning my masters in social work and was completely unprepared to understand why it took her so long to leave. Seven Years. Now I know the primary reason domestic violence survivors remain in or return to an abusive relationship is because they don't have the financial resources to break free and stay free.
Recently, I joined the Board of Directors of Between Friends not only because they are dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence through empowerment and healing; but also because of their focus on prevention and education. From financial counseling given to survivors to groundbreaking teen programs focused on developing healthy relationships, Between Friends is changing the dynamics of domestic violence in Chicago...one relationship at a time.
Now I need your help. Please join me in supporting these efforts by donating during this Allstate Challenge in order for Between Friends to win up to $100,000.
As an added incentive, my dear friend Laura Kofoid, has donated four Laudi Vidni purple italian leather bags to be raffled off at the end of the contest. For each donation of at least $100, you will receive one raffle ticket toward one of these exquisite bags.
Thank you, in advance, for your support.
