Will YOU Take The Pledge for a #BraveWoman in 2012?

Did you know that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime?  Staggering statistic, don't you agree?  I have 4 girls!  That means that at least one of them, in theory, will experience domestic violence.  That's more than disturbing to me!  Are you willing to help?  Can you stand up for these BRAVE women?  It's very CAN help!

A while ago, I told you about My Story of Suffering in Silence.  I was the ONE in that 1 in 4 women equation.  I got out, but so many are still suffering in silence!  Will you help them? 

The Brave Woman Foundation recognizes that "leaving a life of domestic violence is a series of moment-by-moment decisions requiring brave choices and bold actions".  They are here to show that brave women everywhere have a choice!  They are there to support those brave women, and they need YOUR voice too!

Show these brave women that you CARE.  Show them that you believe in them!  Take the PLEDGE in 2012 to make a difference and show THEM that YOU support their bravery!  It's so simple! 

"I pledge to honor and respect brave women and children who tackle the difficult journey of change from domestic violence to a new life. I acknowledge my own moment-by-moment bravery, will remain aware of what is happening to others around me, and speak up against violence in any form. I will stand up for human dignity and safety for women and children."

This organization offers hope!  You can support their efforts.  These brave women can GET HELP.  Yes, there is hope!  

Please, if you do nothing else worthy in 2012, do this NOW!  Take the pledge to show them that you care!  Will you help them be brave?  I took the pledge, and I implore you to do the same.  It only takes a moment of your time and it could mean the world to someone!  They are 1 in 4!  Will you be the ONE that helps them?

  1. The statistics are shocking. I am so happy that you "got out" so you could be a safe, and a brave example for your daughters!

    I am so glad that we can all do something to support brave women. They need and deserve our help!

  3. When I talk to women I feel like it's more than 1 in 4, having experienced it myself, but as long as we are Brave and get the info out there, maybe we change that statistic!

  4. Thanks for sharing your story! I just signed the pledge!

  5. You rock! You know I took the pledge!

  6. Your story brought me to tears. Thank you for being brave for yourself and your children. Thank you for being brave enough to put your story out there for all of us. I am sure your story has touched a reader in a way that she will be brave too! I included your post in a post on my blog- so as many people as possible can be touched by your story. Thanks again for sharing!
