If you've been looking for a way to help others or improve your community, there are a ton of easy ways to help victims of domestic violence. Agencies like the one I work for can always use a little help. Find out what agency or organization serves your area and see how you can help. You don't have to necessarily volunteer time or donate money. Do you have some old cellphones laying around? They can be donated to be used as emergency phones for victims to contact 911. Victims and their children sometimes flee to shelters with only the clothes on their backs. At our shelter and others, I'd imagine, donated clothing, toiletries, and baby items are essential.
I'm including some great links below that have ideas for other ways to help and that are working hard to raise awareness. I don't mean in any way to belittle the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness, but I think this cause deserves some attention too!
