October – Awareness Month

October is the awareness month for two causes very important to me – Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer. Over the summer, we raised nearly $2,000 for The National Domestic Violence Hotline. I’m hoping we can meet or beat that between the two causes this month.

So here’s the deal (edited 10/15 with new info):

  • Make a donation to The Hotline here and I’ll match the total raised at the end of the month.
  • Make a donation to NBCF here and I’ll match the total raised at the end of the month.
  • Make a donation to any other organization serving domestic violence or breast cancer, send me the receipt (email tokristie@kristiecook.com) and I’ll send the same amount to either The Hotline or NBCF.

I’ll donate at least $250 to each cause, but let’s make it more, okay? *bats eyelashes* ALSO, send me your donation receipt, and I’ll send you Soul Savers swag, including bookmarks and whatever else I find to throw into the envelope.

I hope you’ll also join me in The Hotline DVAM Challenge. Details are here. Let’s raise some awareness, and hopefully some funds, to put a stop to domestic violence. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own homes!

I hope you’ll do whatever you can, even if it’s just spreading the word. In today’s world of social media, we can bring a whole new meaning to “raising awareness.” Join me, won’t you?

*Email your donation receipt dated between 10/1/12-10/31/12 to kristie@kristiecook.com by 11/5/12. Be sure to include your mailing address for your bookmarks.
