Causes to work with for the whole month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Home should be a place of love, warmth, and safety. But, unfortunately, that isn’t the case for many.

On average, 20 people are abused by intimate partners every single minute. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year. This has to stop. And, it is exactly why Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a critical initiative.

First declared in October 1989, Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a time dedicated to acknowledging survivors of domestic violence and while also garnering much-needed support to current victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence impacts every member in the home and often has lasting, devastating effects across several generations.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to IARC Globocan (2008), there are roughly 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer each year — making it, by far, the most common cancer in women.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an effort to help increase knowledge and drive support for the awareness, early detection and treatment, as well as palliative care of this disease. When detected early, the chances of survival is high. If detected late, the consequences are dire. This is precisely why we must do all we can to support this cause by raising awareness and driving as much financial support to the organizations leading in research, treatment, and support.

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day celebrates awareness for the global community in an empathetic way, with a unifying voice, helping people feel hopeful by empowering them to take action and create lasting change.

Over two decades ago, the World Federation for Mental Health, dedicated October 10th as a day to promote mental health advocacy, educating the public on issues surrounding mental health. Since then, this national day of observation has grown globally, boasting incredible success.

This year, mental health is top of mind for just about everyone. In 2020 alone we’ve been socially distanced as we battle the novel COVID-19, we’re seeing social unrest spill into our streets after the killing for George Floyd, families across the country are experiencing massive food insecurity, and thousands of families have lost their homes due to wildfires and devastating hurricanes. Our country is in pain, with over 190 000 families grieving the loss of life due to the pandemic.
