Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women in her lifetime – yet it’s a difficult topic to talk about.
To get the conversation started and raise awareness for domestic violence, The Allstate Foundation created the Purple Purse Challenge. SAHELI in Massachusetts is one of more than 160 nonprofit organizations across the country selected to participate.
Massachusetts residents are encouraged to join the Purple Purse Challenge by donating to Saheli by clicking here from Oct. 1-27. With 98 percent of victims also suffering financial abuse, where an abuser will limit access to money and credit, often keeping her trapped in a dangerous situation, these services are critical to help women break free and stay free.
To encourage public donations for local organizations competing in the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge at PurplePurse.com, the Allstate Foundation is investing $500,000 in Challenge sweepstakes and contests.
Supporters can donate from Oct. 1 through Oct. 27, 2015.
