Bodyguards Support the Fight Against Domestic Violence

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?
