Purple Purse*

20 Oct

After sharing my experiences volunteering at the Domestic Violence shelter and my Domestic Violence awareness cupcakes, I’ve been getting many emails on different ways to raise awareness on the topic. While all of the feedback I’ve received regarding this subject is meaningful, an email that caught my attention was regarding the Purple Purse Project.

While Domestic Violence is an issue that affects one in four women, nearly 1/3 of Americans never discuss it. As a way to create awareness and as a resource to those affected, Purple Purse Project was created by the Allstate Foundation & the YWCA. The campaign provides disguised resources to make starting the conversation much easier. The website appears to be an online shopping magazine (similar to SendTheTrend.com), but after scrolling down the page, you will find a variety of information and resources about domestic violence.

With so many women affected by domestic violence, it’s likely that someone you know has a personal experience with it. I encourage you to help me to continue to empower women and help create awareness about Domestic Violence.
