Today is the International Day of Action to Eliminate Violence Against Women. At our last Sole Communicators group, that I run with CharityComms, we heard from national domestic violence charity Refuge about their Don’t Cover it Up Campaign. It was really eye-opening, from a creative campaign perspective (the campaign was hugely successful) but also from an information perspective – there were some shocking statistics. I have written a blog post for CharityComms about the campaign, which you can read here.
I was delighted today to receive an email from Emerald Street to say that they are supporting Refuge this month by donating £1 for every new subscription they receive in December. Emerald Street is a free newsletter from the Stylist team that is sent to your inbox daily so why not sign up today and support Refuge?
Christmas is usually a happy time for families but sadly not for the 2,800 women and children that Refuge helps on any given day through their refuges, independent advocacy and community outreach services. Help them reach more women and children who are trapped in abusive relationships by signing up to Emerald Street or by donating here. Let this New Year be a new start for them….
