October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
pass on information to your work place/DR departments
Talk to someone who is in crisis or that you suspect is being hurt
volunteer at the local shelter/crisis hotlines
donate clothes to the shelter in your hometown
talk about with others, facebook it, tweet or whatever other magic you do so well.
Did you know that your old cell phones can be turned in to most dealers for DV victims so they have immediate access for 911? they dont work for anything else but emergency calls... the companies like T Mobile and Verizon have been doing this for a few years. Clean out your drawers!
Pick up pamphlets at your local centers and leave them on counters at dry cleaners, resturants, windsheilds, wherever.
Ask to put up a flyer in local stores windows.
a portion of all my jewelry sales goes to the Houston DV shelter.
Love isnt supposed to hurt. There will be more information over the next few weeks. In the meantime You can follow the collection to the left for artfire, you can plurk, tweet, blog Facebook it... or connect to this blog. Leave a comment and let us know!
So what are you going to do about it???
