Purple Purses Can Make A Difference

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and The Allstate Foundation. 

Did you know October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month? I had no idea, since domestic violence is not a commonly talked about subject. The statics are astonishing and we should all be talking about it. I was asked to participate in The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Project. This project was started 3 years ago by Allstate to raise money and bring awareness to domestic violence in the US. 

Domestic Violence affects 1 in 4 women, which is more than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. Yet no one is talking about it, but today we can all do our part to make a difference and help out those woman and children affected. You don’t have to be a victim or suffered some type of domestic violence to participate. It’s very easy and doesn't cost you a thing…it all starts with a Purple Purse. I was sent a cute little Purple Purse to share and pass along to other women. Inside the purse is a code you enter at and every time a code is entered The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA up to $350,000 can be earned for programs aimed to help domestic violence survivors stop the cycle of abuse.

A majority of Americans agree that domestic violence is tough to talk about. More than one-third of Americans have never discussed the issue with family or friends and Purple Purse provides a conversation starter. I know it’s not something ever discussed with my family or friends. Although I have never personally been a victim of domestic violence, I know woman who have been and sadly witnessed someone being abused as a child. The memory of this woman being hit by her boyfriend is forever ingrained in my memory. As a child I didn't understand why this was happening and couldn't do anything about it. Now we can all help with The Purple Purse Project.

Not everyone will be able to get the actual Purple Purse, but I have a virtual purple purse to share with all my readers. Take this code 0003, enter it at and every time you do $5 will be donated to YWCA until the end of October. It really doesn't get any easier than this and a simple gesture can help many woman and children who are or have been victims of domestic violence.
