As so many of us, I have been touched by domestic violence both personally (in a past mentally abusive relationship) and through friends. I have friends who have been abused and have lost loved ones to domestic violence.
This does not just affect women, as my coworkers witnessed this year with the loss of a coworker to Domestic Violence, it can affect men as well. In fact, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in their lifetime.
I want to increase awareness and financial resources for service providers who support victims/survivors.
Domestic Violence effects so many more people than many realize! Any small amount can help, protect, and support those affected! Thanks for every little bit of help you can spare!
