Want to join me in supporting a good cause
Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I'm raising money for SAFE House NM, an organization I've worked with for over 10 years. It is a shelter for survivors of domestic violence. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.
Here are some shocking domestic violence statistics:
3 - The number of women murdered every day by a current or former male partner in the U.S.
38,028,000 - The number of women who have experienced physical intimate partner violence in their lifetimes.
