If you didn't already know, we've partnered with an amazing charity for the month of October named Oasis Crisis Intervention and Agape Child Development. You can read more about our partnership here.
October is domestic violence awareness month. To help raise awareness and collect donations, Agape Oasis is participating in the Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse campaign. According to the website,
Allstate Foundation Purple Purse is a public awareness and fundraising campaign aimed at creating long-term safety and security for survivors through financial empowerment. We are making the invisible visible. Bringing financial abuse out of the shadows so victims can get the healing and support they deserve. The program ignites fundraising for hundreds of national, state and local domestic violence organizations."
Domestic violence can be devastating to families, but the effect on entire communities runs even deeper.
National Impact • 1 in 4 women report experiencing domestic violence in her lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer combined. • Lacking financial knowledge and resources is the number one indicator of whether a domestic violence victim will stay, leave or return to an abusive relationship. • Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. It affects all incomes, races and communities. • Domestic violence kills an average of 3 women each day. • Women ages 18 to 24 and 25 to 34 generally experienced the highest rates of intimate partner violence.
