Safe Harbor, a haven for individuals and families working to break the cycle of domestic abuse, located in Virginia will benefit from each book signed by Moon at her book signings. On hand will also be a list and a drop box for items needed by the shelter for the women during the Christmas Holidays and beyond.
ÂChristmas is the time for giving, a time of outreach to those less fortunate than ourselves. Women who are in shelters for the holidays are there because they usually have no where else to turn and though I may not know them I know their struggles.Â Said Moon. ÂI can only hope to be able to make one woman, one family smile in spite of the hardship they are going through.Â
Safe Harbor is a comprehensive domestic violence program offering the following services to men, women and children in the metro Richmond area. A 24-hour domestic violence hotline to provide support, safety planning and crisis intervention services, a confidentially located shelter for women and children seeking safety, individual counseling for any victim of domestic violence child or adult, support groups for both women and children, court advocacy for anyone seeking a protective order, education programs targeted to professional organizations as well as a variety of children and adult groups.
ÂI am just so excited about the prospect of working with Rainey Moon! I think this is going to be such a wonderful partnership.Â Said Shannon Heady, Executive Director of Safe Harbor.
Each book sold at the signings will give 10 percent towards the shelter and it doesnÂt stop there. Moon intends on keeping the donations rolling in through her regular sales as well by donating percentage of the proceeds from both Whispered Words and Timeless Souls throughout the years to come. She also looks towards adding more shelters and organizations to the list in an effort to help women in other localities.
ÂWomen need to know they have a place to go, a place that is safe from danger and a place that wonÂt turn their back on them should they not have enough money or they wish to bring their children.Â Said Moon. ÂIf one woman can stay at a shelter free from fear because of my donations, itÂs one less woman who could fall prey to a far worse fate.Â
