Something that personally hits home to me every year, every week, every day, every minute. My story on how my business was started is e-mailed to each individual customer who places their first order with us and I hope you've had a chance to read it! I didn't have the opportunity to let my situation get me down externally. I had to provide for 2 beautiful children and a baby on the way. Inside I was dying. Had I not had the support of so many people I didn't even know prior to, I may not be alive to share my story today. My goal is to help as many people in similar situations as I was escape their abusers, once and for all.
Here are some facts you may not know about DV:
On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence.
1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.
On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.
Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime.
Though there's no way to stop Domestic Violence, we can help the victims by giving them the resources needed to successfully leave their abusers once and for all! Many people are living in abusive relationships with no way to escape, no hope for a better life. Throughout this month I will be sharing stories and encouraging you to share yours. 100% of the proceeds from these tees will go to help the victims like myself who don't have the resources or support to leave their abusers.
