October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which first started in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) as a day to bring awareness to victims and survivors of Domestic Violence and connect and unify women’s advocates across the country.
The NCADV is a motivated organization whose mission is to educate others to have zero tolerance for Domestic Violence by being a catalyst for change and to be the voice of the victims and survivors.
NCADV’s goals are to:
- Eliminate domestic violence
- Empower battered women and children
- Promote and unify direct service programs
- Alert and educate the public
- Promote partnerships
Shockingly, one in three women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Of those women, females who are between the ages of 18-24 are at the highest risk for domestic violence. More than 10 million men and women worldwide are victims of physical violence and abuse by an intimate partner each year. Sadly, many of these incidents go unreported to the police.
It is time to break the pattern. Mineral Fusion and NCADV take a stand against domestic violence together.
Mineral Fusion partnered with the NCADV to help raise awareness of this increasing problem and show these strong women that they are survivors and they are not alone. We want to contribute positively to social welfare through expanding awareness and increased compassion.
Mineral Fusion is devoted to helping the NCADV achieve its goals and vision. We donate a portion of our sales to assist the organization’s mission, and donate product to the NCADV’s network of shelters. For more information on how you can help, please visit ncadv.org, or call The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
Let’s re-commit this month and the month’s moving forward to finally break the cycle of domestic violence, together.
