YWCA Domestic Violence Awareness TweetUp
Monday, October 24, 2011 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
Subject: You’re Invited: Show up to help end Domestic Violence
During the time it will take you to read this email, 5 women will be affected by domestic violence – that’s 145 people every hour. Sadly, 1 in 4 women will be affected during their lifetime.
But you can help. YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish hopes you will join us for a special event to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness month. Lunch will be provided.
On Monday, October 24 from 11:30 to 1:00 at YWCA Greenbridge Learning Center you will learn how to approach and talk to a family member, friend or co-worker you suspect is a victim of domestic violence. Learn what you can do.
We have been challenged by The Allstate Foundation to have at least 100 people attend the event. For every attendee, the Foundation will donate $100 to the YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish to fund programs that support domestic violence victims.
And, if you haven’t heard already, there’s a secret on purplepurse.com so check it out today. We will share more about the story of the purple purse at the event. You can show your support by wearing purple and/or bringing a purse to donate.

RSVP today and help end domestic violence.
