Did you know that domestic violence affects one in four women in their lifetime? That’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. The statistics are staggering, yet only about half of Americans say they would know how to help a victim of domestic violence.
Join us for an informational and empowering Twitter discussion, to learn more about how our friends at The Allstate Foundation are helping to give a voice to this issue with the Purple Purse campaign!
Purple Purse Twitter Party
Date: Thursday, October 3rd
Time: 8-9 p.m. EST
Host: @MomTalkRadio(Maria Bailey, Founder of MomSelect)
We can’t wait to tell you all about how 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. For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA. During the party, we’ll share how YOU can get involved by sharing a virtual Purple Purse by logging onto Facebook.com/PurplePurse or www.purplepurse.com.
You’ll even have a chance to win an actual Purple Purse that you can pass to a friend, family member or co-worker, to spark meaningful conversations about this important topic! We’ll be giving away five (5) Purple Purse prize packs throughout the party, which include a $25 Visa gift card, as a thank you for spreading the word about this important cause.
