Domestic Violence Awareness Month Giveaway! Win $25 Via PayPal

To promote awareness for Domestic Violence Allstate has created The Allstate’s Foundation Purple Purse Campaign! Probably most people like myself arte unaware that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!

Did you know that domestic violence affects one in four women in their lifetime? That's more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined.  The statistics are staggering, only about half of Americans say they would know how to help a victim of domestic violence.

I would ask that we pass around my purple purse to help Allstate spread awareness & donate to a great cause! I will post my code & instructions at the bottom of this post so we can all work together! To show support I will also be giving one of fans a chance to win a $25 via paypal!

There's no doubt that domestic violence is difficult to talk about, but with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, our friends at The Allstate Foundation are helping to give a voice to this issue with the Purple Purse campaign. Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation's symbol for domestic violence, proudly represents a woman's way to escape the cycle of abuse by gaining financial independence.  Now in its third year, The Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse campaign has pledged to donate up to $350,000 to the YWCA for programs designed at assisting survivors of domestic violence and other women in need.

As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Allstate Foundation is sending more than 1,000 purses carrying domestic violence information throughout the country. I will be passing my purse around to friends, family & neighbors to spread the word about this great cause to help educate women!

For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA. You can even pass a virtual purple purse by logging onto or (A Spanish-language site is available at Each time a virtual purple purse is shared or re-shared, The Allstate Foundation will make a $5 donation to YWCA.
