On the 7th day of prevention I…

bought presents for my families and friends that promoted and helped preventing domestic violence.

We go out and buy “things” all the time for people, and that’s wonderful…but, we could be doing more. What if we donated $5-10 in the name of our friends and relatives towards domestic violence prevention programs?  They would have a vested interest in the cause, and you’ll probably spend less money.

If you truly have to give a “thing”…there are multiple organizations selling holiday gift items where the proceeds go to preventing domestic violence.

A few ideas:

NCADV – National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Every state has a coalition against domestic violence

Your local shelter might be as well.
