Behind too many closed doors, people are living with physical, verbal, and financial abuse. What will trigger the next argument that will turn what should have been a beautiful day into a nightmare? As one little boy in our care told us, "I stay awake as long as I can to try to protect mommy."
We're very excited to be a part of The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a national fundraising challenge. It's a chance for us to fund programs that will help victims and their families live a safer more independent life, a life free from abuse.
To give back, Allstate Foundation will be donating $500,000 to ignite public awareness and fundraising for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. The charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will get a $100,000 donation. Second place gets $75,000, third gets $50,000, fourth gets $25,000 and 5th-10th each get $10,000. We're out to raise as much money as possible for our cause so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation.
We think we can win. To do so, we definitely need your help. We hope you will make a donation or even join our fundraising team. Every donation makes a difference, no matter how small.
