I am raising money to support a cause that I care about deeply.
- 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in their lifetime.
- On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
- On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.
I want to increase awareness and financial resources for service providers who support victims/survivors.
By donating to this cause you are helping victims gain access to much needed resources. FADV works with local shelters around the country to help them provide what they need to as well as setting up programs with partners (like M. Global doing mani mixers). They work hard to spread awareness and educate the public about domestic violence, how to recognize it, how to help loved ones, and how to help yourself.
Most importantly: if you are reading this and you need anonymous, confidential help, 24/7, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY).
