Did you know the month of October is National Breast Cancer awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness month? If you didn’t know, now you know. I will be wearing pink and purple ribbons throughout the month to raise awareness and bring in support to these causes. Many people know about Breast Cancer awareness, so this month I will dedicate my blogs to poems and facts on domestic violence awareness.
Domestic violence is a subject matter that has crept its way into our churches, communities, and families and the time has come that we blow the whistle on it. It’s time to be a voice to the voiceless.
What will you do to help a cause or raise awareness on these topics? I will be racing for cure on October 13, 2012 (Susan G. Komen) and running to raise awareness on Domestic Violence on October 27, 2012 (From Hurting Hands to Healing Hands-Lend a Hand to Help End Domestic Violence). If you are interested in participating in these events feel free to send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will you do to help raise awareness?
Remember cancer doesn’t discriminate and we can support the agencies who are fighting for a cure. Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate and we can help raise awareness by educating ourselves and by sharing what we learn with others.
Join me in raising awareness.
