Domestic Violence has been an issue near and dear to my heart. The fact that so many women out there are verbally, financially, or violently (domestic violence affects one in four women) abused by spouses just brakes my heart. Verbal abuse can still be classified as domestic violence, it still leaves scars. Now Financial abuse is also abuse. Did you know that the number one reason victims remain in relationships with their abusers: they lack the financial knowledge and resources they need to break free. So if you’re suffering from verbal, financial or physical abuse I urge you to seek out help.
If you’re not in an abusive relationship then I ask you to help us make a different for those in need. I am teaming up with Allstate, Purple Purse, and YWCA USA to raise money for Domestic Violence. PurplePurse.com and its resources are brought to you by The Allstate Foundation in partnership with YWCA USA and the National Network to End Domestic Violence.
Allstate is donating 100.00 for every person that shows up to our local charity event in Seattle up to 100 people. So we have to fill this room people!
When: Oct. 24 11:30 to 1:00
Directions: 9720 8th Ave. SW
Seattle, WA 98106
