This year, we are joining domestic violence programs across the country for #GiveForDV, a campaign that calls on individuals to step up and give back to support survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and the programs that help them find safety. #Every1KnowSome1 who has suffered abuse; 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience severe physical violence in their lifetimes, but abuse is so much more than physical - it's psychological, emotional, verbal and financial, too. Help us build a safer New York by participating in #GiveForDV.
We are thrilled that NYSCADV sponsor and supporter, CDPHP, is partnering with us on our #GiveforDV initiative in New York this year. We extend our thanks to CDPHP and look forward to encouraging New Yorkers to #GiveForDV this November and December!
Here are some ways you can support the #GiveForDV campaign in New York:
- Participate in #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, and it's a great opportunity to make a difference. We hope you will join NYSCADV on November 30 for this annual day of community, connection, and giving back. Join us on #GivingTuesday by making a gift to support our work to end and prevent domestic violence. If you'd rather not wait until November 30, you can also make your gift early!
- Spread the word! Follow NYSCADV on our social media platforms. Encourage your friends and family to join you in making a real impact on November 30. Everyone knows someone victimized by domestic violence. Share what our mission means to you and why you support NYSCADV. We will also be posting #ThankfulThursday posts throughout November to express our gratitude for our amazing network of advocates, volunteers, sponsors and supporters. Follow along and participate in our #ThankfulThursday messages!
- Join our Facebook Fundraising Challenge! Set up your own Facebook fundraiser supporting NYSCADV. Any fundraiser that raises $100 by December 31 will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift card!
