BENEFITING: WOMEN ORGANIZED TO MAKE ABUSE NON EXISTENT INC
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2015
I volunteer my time on the Board of W.O.M.A.N. Inc. (Woman Organized to Make Abuse Nonexistent) that helps support survivors of domestic violence. For the month of October, I’m actively fundraising through Allstate’s Purple Purse Challenge which advocates women’s empowerment through financial freedom.
Domestic violence affects 1 in 3 women in their lifetime, and the number one reason victims remain in relationships with their abusers is that they lack the financial resources to break free. This past year has seen violence against women garner more attention in the media. Violence against women and children is the most pervasive human rights challenge of our time. Here are some shocking statitistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).
I personally have witnessed many friends and family members that stay in unhealthy and abusive relationships which is why I am most passionate about this cause.
W.O.M.A.N. Inc. provides programs and services to support not only the survivor but also their children, extended family, and household pets.
I hope you have time to watch the video on my fundraiser page. The Allstate Purple Purse Challenge ends October 27th. My goal is to raise $2000, but I can’t do this without your support.
Domestic violence knows no boundaries – geographic, social, demographic or economic. W.O.M.A.N. Inc. extends programs and services to include LGBTQ survivors. I want to prove that compassion has no limits as well.
