AS MANY Of YOU KNOW, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). As our part in advancing the cause of DVAM, we would like to announce that for the remainder of the month of October, 10% of all my royalties from the sale of my book, Real Advice For The Newlywed currently on sale at Amazon.com will be donated to NoMore.org’s campaign to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
Some alarming facts:
· Nearly one in four women in the U.S. reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life.
· On average, three women are killed every day as a result of domestic violence. More than 40 percent of female murder victims are killed by their husbands or boyfriends.
· Data found that women experience over two million injuries from partner violence each year.
· Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States.
From first page to last, Real Advice For The Newlywed was written as a guide to help married couples navigate their way through the sometimes tempestuous strife and turmoil many couples encounter - including the threat of physical and emotional violence. There is one entire chapter devoted specifically on how to handle the threat of physical and mental cruelty.
If you haven’t yet purchased your copy of Real Advice For The Newlywed, for yourself or as a wedding gift to a couple you know, now is the time to do so before October ends. This is an important and vital effort to ensure the continuation of NoMore.org’s efforts to educate and eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault. Make it yours.
I invite you to share this with as many of your contacts as possible.
