National Domestic Violence Hotline Awareness

We’re Partnering with Glamour and Avon to End Abuse

We have an exciting new campaign with GLAMOUR magazine and the Avon Foundation for Women to raise money for The Hotline and increase awareness about domestic violence. We are thankful for both organizations and their commitment to end domestic violence and empower our advocates who answer the phones.

GLAMOUR has generously lent their website to displaying critical information to their readers about the issue and our new campaign.

This innovative partnership has already gained attention. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, longtime domestic violence advocates, gave an exclusive, heart-wrenching GLAMOUR interview about the issue and The Hotline. Below is an excerpt:

GLAMOUR: You’ve been working on this issue for more than 20 years now. Do you ever get discouraged?

DR. JILL BIDEN: Several times [on the campaign trail] a woman would say, “You know my sister would be alive today if we’d had VAWA sooner.” It’s just story after story.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: So when you ask, “Do you get discouraged?” No, I get angry. This is about one woman at a time. I think the scariest thing, the thing that makes my stomach just sink, is knowing how alone in a crowd these women are. [An abusive relationship] is worse than being in prison. I mean literally, not figuratively.

We will be sharing more information soon. We encourage all of our friends and readers to become involved.

    You can decorate the venue according to your own particular themes.
    Brides who truly want something spectacular may ofganize a hen night party abroad.
    For instance you could start off the day with some pampering
    at a Spa before moving onto fine ining and then a bar in the evening.
