Girls in Gis Wish List Donation Drive benefiting SafePlace

It's extremely upsetting to me how many lives have been destroyed or lost due to domestic violence. The worst part is that unless these stories end in tragedy, a lot of the times the abuse can go unnoticed and undetected.  Domestic violence and abuse isn't just for the poor or destitute. It can strike anywhere regardless of social-economic classes. Because the emotional and psychological abuse inflicted it's the victims that carries the burden of shame and embarrassment. It takes a lot of courage for these women to leave (or escape in most cases) and seek help because of the severe emotional, physical and sexual abuse inflicted upon them. But thanks to organizations like SafePlace there is hope for a better future. The work that SafePlace does is phenomenal. They have amazing resources and services to get these women and children's lives back on track. 

Please help us collect donations for those who need it most to start off the new year right!
