For a Cause, and For Empowerment

I don't know if you knew that October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness month, but also Dating and Domestic Violence Awareness month ...

I don't know if you knew that October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness month, but also Dating and Domestic Violence Awareness month. To me, this also encompasses emotional abuse, and not just physical. It's about power and control, and the lack thereof, and that is, to put it mildly, so not cool. So what can you do to help? 


mark. is doing a Pintervention, where every time one of the pins on their Pintervention board gets repinned from 10/8 to 11/8, $1 will be donated (up to $10,000) to their m.Powerment fund, a fund that's already raised over $1 million in just about four years, and is dedicated to breaking the cycle of dating abuse and partner violence. It's that easy! So get over to Pinterest and repin one, or all, of their pins, and help the cause. What may take you a couple seconds could potentially save somebody from physical or emotional pain - what's more selfless than that?

Plus, if you buy any of the following items, 10% of the proceeds will go to the fund as well! So treat yourself to something new while shopping for a cause - that's the best reason to shop at all.


Have a great weekend, and thanks for supporting the cause!!

  1. This is such an important cause. I think the strength for people to survive these circumstances is especially needed.

  2. I like that you emphasized that abuse does not only involve physical but emotional as well. People forget that just because one is not bruised physically that they are not abused. Thanks for posting. Kudos to mark for this cause!
