October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month which many know is a cause that I support wholeheartedly. Today I took a few clients on a tour of Women’s Advocates – The nation’s oldest shelter for women who are victims of Domestic Abuse, and an organization I have the pleasure of serving on the Board of Directors. The shelter assists women and their children with coping with a pretty dark period in their lives and does a really good job of helping the children deal with that trauma, by allowing them to well…be children.
During a tour of one of the play areas on the site, I had to keep ducking under the low ceilings, and narrowly dodged a speeding nerf ball. Then came a challenge:
“I’ll put up $ _ ,_ _ _.00 if you sit in that kid sized chair and post the photo on facebook.”
My response was, not only will I do that, I’ll put it on my Blog.
I spent my morning contributing to aiding the fight against DV. How you can spend yours?
