And, the best part of the Challenge is that even if you don't win any of the grand prize money, you get to keep the money you raise during the campaign. So, so great.
By donating to NHCADSV between now and October 3, you can help the Coalition raise even more money to do their vital work. The awareness of domestic violence is heightened right now with professional athletes involved in domestic violence cases.
Most of us know this is a problem. A boyfriend once dislocated my jaw. I've had 3 stalkers, one who stalked me off and on for 10 years. Domestic violence recently re-entered my life in a vivid and personal way. (I'll have more to say about that in the months ahead.) Please help the NH Coalition. They do important work, they lobby against bad legislation and for good legislation - the kind that protects the rights of victims. And lets be clear - both women and men can be victims of DV.
The odds are high that you have a friend, a relative, or a neighbor that has been abused. Please donate generously to our friends at the NH Coalition so that they can continue to help everyone who needs help.
