|My smiling face belied being a victim of domestic violence|
The recent release of the video of Ray Rice and Jenay Palmer in the elevator has increased discussion about domestic violence in popular culture. It was difficult to watch and many question how his girlfriend, now wife stayed and married Ray after the assault. As a survivor of domestic violence, I know firsthand how complex this type of relationship can be. I’ve written about my experience here but I think this line from my post can provide some insight.
- You can turn in your unused phone in store or by mail - they will even pay your postage!
- Purchase a Verizon purple Hope Line accessory in September and October and $3.00 will be donated to Hope Line.
October is Domestic violence awareness month and if you are in the market for new phone accessories, I suggest looking at the HopeLine merchandise. And remember, at any time during the year you can donate your old unused cell phones and make a difference with Hope Line!
If you are a victim of Domestic Violence call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for help:
