Today is “Giving Tuesday” and I invite you to participate.
All gifts received this Giving Tuesday will support one of our most highly utilized programs – our 24 hour Domestic and Sexual Violence Hotlines. The hotlines are always available and are staffed by highly trained professionals in the field of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking. Everyday, 180 is answering calls and helping to guide victims to safety.
Nearly 3,000 calls are made to 180 annually. The hotlines are often the entryway into additional agency services including: emergency shelter at our safe house, counseling, legal and court advocacy, and programs for children such as our Amanda’s Easel Creative Arts Therapy program or the 2NDFLOOR Youth Text and Helpline.
Please donate in honor of Giving Tuesday and your gift will help us answer the call in a victim’s moment of crisis. Your support at any level makes a difference!
P.S: As you probably already know, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Thank you for including 180 Turning Lives Around in your giving plans this year!
