Domestic Violence- opportunities to help

Written on: November 20, 2014

After we blogged about October being Domestic Violence Awareness month, we received information on nationwide campaigns trying to make a difference.

The first is Hope Line, an initiative of Verizon Wireless.  They have already collected over 10 million phones nationwide, while donating over $18 million dollars to domestic violence organizations.Click here for an explanation of the program.
In June, a program was launched through HopeLine called “Because Voices Have Power,” a national campaign designed to increase awareness of domestic violence and provide a platform for the public to send messages of hope to victims and survivors. For each message of hope shared, Verizon has committed to donating $3 to local and national domestic violence prevention organizations across the country.
We invite you to add to the conversation and encourage others to submit a message of hope online at: #Voices Have Power
