Supporting Domestic Violence Awareness
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten. It is an issue that crosses all social and economic boundaries and is prevalent throughout our country.
Our friend and colleague Jana Kramer recently shared her story on Good Morning America and inspired so many. We stand united with Jana in support of the critical need for awareness about what is considered domestic violence and how to get help.
We at Go Girl Designs were founded by a mother-daughter team and proud to support the Salvation Army’s Joy D. Baker Center. We will donate $5 for every bracelet sold now through November 10 to the Joy D. Baker Center. This secure facility not only helps women but women with children as well. Domestic violence can impact all family members and this facility wants to help women stay safe as individuals or with their family if needed.
Domestic violence starts with an act by an intimate partner. Men, women, and children are all victims and more than 20,000 calls come into hotlines across the country per day. If you or someone you know needs assistance with their situation, they can get anonymous, confidential help by calling the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE).
There is help and there is hope.
