The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge is a fundraising campaign for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. Everything launches on Thursday, October 1st at 12:00pmET & runs through Tuesday, October 27th at 1:59:59pmET. The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $100,000 donation.
Triumph Crisis Recovery Center is dedicated to achieving peace, fairness, justice and opportunity by helping victims of domestic violence, poverty, human trafficking, and children with special needs through crises and by working to prevent violence, unfairness and injustice.
Most of the time, victims of abuse do not have the opportunity to have a collaborated plan where they can take their belongings before they escape their abusive environment. Their entire life is controlled by their abuser, 24 hours a day/365 days a year. They are being told what they can wear, what they can eat, how much money they can have in their purse & who they are allowed to speak with. Often times, victims & their children leave with just the clothes on their backs. Did you know that with only $30.00 per day you can help feed a person escaping an abusive environment? With $15.00, you would be supplying someone with their basic hygiene products? And with $255.00 you will provide a family with shelter for 3 nights.
Through your help, we can help victims become triumphant survivors!
