It is clear that domestic violence affects many people’s lives. In my previous post, I wrote about my experience with Domestic Violence. Now I want to take it a step further.
Through the month of October, I will donate $0.50 to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) for every comment I receive on each of my blog. If you tweet this post using #stopd0mesticviolence, I will add another $0.10 to the pot. If you make a donation of any amount to NCADV, I will add another $1.00 (make sure I know about it).
Although this cause is important to me, I cannot afford to leave the donation amount open; therefore, I will place a cap of $250.00 on it. Thank you in advance for your help and support. If we can help just one woman or child to escape an abusive relationship, this effort will be worthwhile.
