Blackburn Center Fundraiser: April 2016

Carolyn’s Online Magazine (#COMe)

FUNDRAISER FOR THE

BLACKBURN CENTER,

GREENSBURG (WESTMORELAND COUNTY),

PENNSYLVANIA

During 2016 Carolyn’s Online Magazine  (#COMe) is sponsoring subscription/follow challenges to raise funds for designated organizations.

For each subscription/follow made to Carolyn’s Online Magazine  (#COMe) during April, 2016, I’ll donate $2.00  to the BLACKBURN CENTER in Greensburg (Westmoreland County), Pennsylvania.

Many women ‘walk on eggshells,’ often unsuccessfully, to prevent a domestic or sexual violence incident. They hold their breath waiting for the incident they know will come, and they hold their breath during the incident. And many women never take another breath again.

The BLACKBURN CENTER advocates for the rights of all individuals to live free from this domestic and sexual violence in their homes and communities by eliminating the root causes of this violence and providing for the well-being and safety of survivors/victims.

Please share this post with your friends and relatives. The more subscriptions to Carolyn’s Online Magazine  (#COMe) the higher the donation to the BLACKBURN CENTER

Although the Blackburn Center is geared to domestic and sexual violence it is appropriate to feature during National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Much violence against children—including spouse violence—occurs in the home, and children learn domestic violence and sexual abuse behavior in their homes. The chain must be broken.
