Did you know that domestic violence affects one in four women in their lifetime? That's more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. The statistics are staggering, only about half of Americans say they would know how to help a victim of domestic violence.
There's no doubt that domestic violence is difficult to talk about, but with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, our friends at The Allstate Foundation are helping to give a voice to this issue with the Purple Purse campaign. Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation's symbol for domestic violence, proudly represents a woman's way to escape the cycle of abuse by gaining financial independence. Now in its third year, The Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse campaign has pledged to donate up to $350,000 to the YWCA for programs designed at assisting survivors of domestic violence and other women in need.
As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Allstate Foundation is sending more than 1,000 purses carrying domestic violence information throughout the country. The purses will be passed between co-workers, friends, and family, sparking important conversations along the way. For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA. You can even pass a virtual purple purse by logging onto Facebook.com/PurplePurse orwww.purplepurse.com. (A Spanish-language site is available at www.bolsomorado.com.) Each time a virtual purple purse is shared or re-shared, The Allstate Foundation will make a $5 donation to YWCA.

I was given the great opportunity to review the Canvas Prints at Easy Canvas Prints. I am a canvas fan. I don't have a lot of canvas in my house, but every so often I try to replace a framed photo with a canvas....especially with those super special pictures that you want to cherish forever. Through Easy Canvas Prints, you can turn any photo to canvas....and they are perfect for your home or office, or even as a gift! Their canvas prints design program is really easy to use....and it makes the most simple picture look amazing and like a work of art when it is on the canvas! What makes Easy Canvas Prints so unique is that their canvas prints are printed and stretched in-house by their canvas professionals. By the time they get to your house, they are ready to hang or display with a classic semi-gloss finish. All you have to do, is pick the size you want and then the wrap thickness and upload your pictures...or art, and finally choose your border for a print that is all yours…
