For the month of October, Allstate will give up to $350,000 to the YWCA (Young Women's Christian Association) to help domestic violence survivors gain vital information to stop the abuse.
Just go to http://www.purplepurse.com/ and enter the virtual purse code of 0002 with your zip code, and Allstate will give $5 for every purse passed. Share this information with others.
Allstate is also working with http://nomore.org/ to stop domestic violence and assault.
I've known too many friends that have been afraid to speak out about their situation and how they could not leave because of finances, children or even them thinking that's the way their spouse shows love. And it's not only about women and children, men are finding themselves on the receiving side. It doesn't matter what race, religion, gender, age, etc.
