INSPIRED BY KERRY WASHINGTON.
Financial abuse is the #1 reason why domestic violence victims can’t “just leave.” Help victims become #FreeToWalk by donating to the #PurplePurseChallenge. GCADV is participating in the All State Foundation Fundraising Event to Spread awareness of domestic and economic abuse and empower survivors to lead financially independent lives.
The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge is a fundraising competition where charities benefiting domestic violence survivors compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations from The Allstate Foundation. We have the opportunity to win $100,000 to $15,000 in addition to our local donations.
Most, if not all, of us have been impacted by domestic violence. We have witnessed or experienced the hurt, pain, loneliness, and tumult it causes. We, as individuals and community members, want to make a difference in the lives of those impacted, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. A small donation is a big way to start.
Help us to continue to make a difference. Over 44,000 crisis calls were made to Georgia domestic violence agencies in the past year. Close to 6,000 victims and their children were housed in domestic violence shelters across the state this year. In 2015, 139 victims and their children lost their lives to domestic violence in Georgia. Let’s work together to end these statistics.
Thank you for your support!
