Domestic Violence Awareness Month "1 Thing"


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month the theme for this year is 1 Thing. The idea is that everyone can do 1 thing and Awareness + Action = Social Change. Maybe its sharing a fact about domestic violence on social media, volunteering for a program that provides services for victims of domestic violence, or making a financial donation to an organization. Its hard for one person to do it all but we can all do one thing to make out community a little better. Whats your one thing?
