The Facts about Domestic Violence
Sadly domestic Violence affects one in four woman in their lifetime.That"s more than Breast Cancer,Ovarian Cancer and Lung Cancer combined.Only half of Americans say they know how to help a victim of domestic violence.
The Allstate Foundation are helping to give a voice to this issue with the Purple Purse campaign. Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation's symbol for domestic violence, proudly represents a woman's way to escape the cycle of abuse by gaining financial independence. Now in its third year, The Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse campaign has pledged to donate up to $350,000 to the YWCA for programs designed at assisting survivors of domestic violence and other women in need.
As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Allstate Foundation is sending more than 1,000 purses carrying domestic violence information throughout the country. The purses will be passed between co-workers, friends, and family, sparking important conversations along the way. For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA.
