#WODV

Does your partner humiliate or yell at you? Do they act excessively jealous or possessive? Do they constantly check up on you? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, this is a sign that you may be in an abusive relationship. While attending the Savvy Thriftique White Out Domestic Violence fundraiser a few weeks ago, I learned that every 9 seconds a woman is assaulted or abused in the US and that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women. Hearing those statistics was totally unbelievable. Of course I was not ignorant to the existence of domestic violence, but I did not know that so many people were affected by it.

Terra & Ellen, owners of The Savvy Thriftique, sponsored a lovely event benefiting two local domestic violence organizations. Chayil, an organization founded by Heidi Day, works with existing transitional programs to assist women up to 12 months after leaving a shelter. Their two phase system equips individuals with the tools they need to "makeover" their life and also shows them how to utilize the learned tools. On the other hand, NuRevelations, founded by Darlene Sheardon, is a faith-based organization whose mission is to motivate and empower everyone, not just women, to obtain their God-Given purpose.

After hearing from the matriarchs of both organizations and noshing on delicious eats, the fundraiser part of the event began. Savvy Thriftique, a mobile resale boutique, had racks and racks of fabulous thrifty finds for us ladies to tear through. I scored a FAB vintage rose pink dress, that will make it's way in a post this fall and also got to catch up with some of my fellow Blog Fab Fashionistas. The night was truly empowering and was a great success in helping to White Out Domestic Violence.
