30 MORE Days of Blogging -- Day 18
Day 18 – A charity or a cause you support and why
This is a very personal subject for me and honestly something I am not forthcoming about for various reasons – some valid and some out of pure shame.
I work on that shame daily – because the shame is what silences victims and enables the abuser.
With that being said…
I support Elizabeth Buffam Chace Center -- a local hotline/crisis center/shelter for individuals and families affected by abuse.
I do so because I became personally involved with EBC and the wonderful counselors who work there after leaving an abusive relationship.
I do so because I believe in paying it forward and because I hope that maybe the small things I do will help someone to never be where I was or worst.
