Domestic Violence Awareness Month and J.B.W.S.


It's that time of year again! October is domestic violence awareness month.

Did you know that an estimated 1 in 4 women will be victims of domestic violence in their lifetime?

This October, I will be raising funds for Jersey Battered Women's Services, one of the state's nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping victims of domestic abuse. J.B.W.S. had been working with families affected by domestic violence in Morris County since the late 70's and is a full service, non profit domestic violence agency. They offer comprehensive services to prevent abusive behavior and assist victims, children, and the family members and friends who want to help.

For the entire month of October, $10 of every massage I do will go toward this wonderful organization's efforts to improve, protect, and educate our community. This year, I'll also be including gift card sales. If you'd like to participate, but can't get make it in for a visit, you can go here to get an instant online gift card.
