#PutTheNailinIt

Recently, I was invited to attend an event at Henri Bendel in NYC hosted by Safe Horizon.  They are the leading organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence.  While I was unable to attend, I did read the literature they sent to me about their #PutTheNailinIt campaign and I was totally blown away by the statistics.

 As a Mother I find those stats so frightening and I would like to do what I can to help.  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I figured I would pass along the information to you guys in case you want to participate in this worthy initiative also.

To take part in #PutTheNailinIt you complete three easy steps.  First, make a donation on the Safe Horizon website.  Next, you paint the ring finger on your left hand purple to show your support.  Finally, post your new #PutTheNailinIt mani on social media using the hashtag to encourage others to join the movement.

I hope you will participate!

    I feel like domestic violence doesn’t get near the spot light that it should!!! So many victims are out there that don’t come forward and suffer in silence.

    This is such a great cause, and I definitely don’t feel like it gets enough attention. It’s terrifying how many suffer through this! Thank you for sharing something so important.

    I use to mediate for Safe Horizons in law school and got certified to do it, so I will occasionally hold a session. It’s a wonderful cause and so damn important and I’m so glad to see someone bringing awareness to it!
