You Can Make a Difference


Anyone who cares can make a difference. By donating your time, goods, or monetary donation you can make a difference in the lives of those "surviving" abuse. All it takes is a person who cares about others to make an impact in another person's life.



Reasons to get involved

1:It feels good. There is a sense of pride and satisfaction that comes from helping others by volunteering. When you decide to devote your time and effort to an organization you feel strongly about, the feeling of fulfillment can be endless.


2:It's good for our community. Organizations and agencies that use volunteers are providing important services at low or no cost to those who need them. When a community is doing well, its individuals are better off too.


3:It can strengthen your family. Volunteering is a great way for families to have fun and feel closer.  Children love the sense of responsibility of helping others and it shows them how to make a difference in the lives of others.

We celebrate Denim Day because in 1992, an 18-year-old girl in Italy was picked-up by her driving instructor to begin a driving lesson. Soon after, she was raped on the side of the road by the instructor. She pressed charges and won her case. The instructor appealed, and the case went to the Italian High Court.


In 1999, the Court overturned the conviction with a member of the High Court declaring that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them himself, therefore the victim must have willingly participated.


Women of the Italian Legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans to work. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest. In April 1999, a social service agency in Los Angeles, California established the first Denim Day in the United States. Since then several entities in other states have hosted events.
