October - Awareness Month

October is the awareness month for two causes very important to me - Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer. Over the summer, we raised nearly $2,000 for The National Domestic Violence Hotline. I'm hoping we can meet or beat that between the two causes this month.

So here's the deal (edited 10/15 with new info):

  • Make a donation to The Hotline here and I'll match the total raised at the end of the month.
  • Make a donation to NBCF here and I'll match the total raised at the end of the month.
  • Make a donation to any other organization serving domestic violence or breast cancer, send me the receipt (email and I'll send the same amount to either The Hotline or NBCF.

I'll donate at least $250 to each cause, but let's make it more, okay? *bats eyelashes* ALSO, send me your donation receipt, and I'll send you Soul Savers swag, including bookmarks and whatever else I find to throw into the envelope.

I hope you'll also join me in The Hotline DVAM Challenge. Details are here. Let's raise some awareness, and hopefully some funds, to put a stop to domestic violence. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own homes!

I hope you'll do whatever you can, even if it's just spreading the word. In today's world of social media, we can bring a whole new meaning to "raising awareness." Join me, won't you?

*Email your donation receipt dated between 10/1/12-10/31/12 to by 11/5/12. Be sure to include your mailing address for your bookmarks.
