October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the color for this cause is purple. I’ve been busy making purple ribbons and would love to offer one to you! If you would like a ribbon, please send your address to the SSB email (SpiritualSB@gmail.com) and I will send one off. If you have a preference for a lighter or darker purple, let me know. I have plenty of yarn!
The best thing you could do, though, is make yourself aware of resources in your area so you can help someone who is looking to leave an abusive relationship. A good place to start is the National Domestic Violence Hotline. You can also do a simple Google search with “domestic violence” and the name of your city or county which should bring up resources in your local area. Finally, you can follow the National Network to End Domestic Violence (#31n31) throughout the month to read survivor stories.
Now, if we could get NFL players to wear purple socks for part of the month….
