We hope to ignite awareness, conversation, and fundraising for our local shelter. Making our community better and stronger is the ultimate goal ...and getting women and their children the help they need to be safe and to thrive...should motivate us all.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 17, 2016
Fort Lauderdale Insurance Services has debuted the latest charity campaign in a widely recognized community involvement program serving the families of greater Fort Lauderdale. Turning their attention to domestic violence and the financial dependence which so often accompanies it, the agency hopes to raise community awareness and empower local women. Readers who wish to support safer lives and brighter futures for victims may contribute to the local domestic abuse shelter here.
The statistics are staggering – 1 in every 4 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. And all too often, women hesitate to leave due to financial dependence. With nowhere to go and no way to support themselves and their children, victims remain in dangerously escalating situations. Local shelters are key to providing a safe way out, counseling to aid in healing, life skills training, and educational opportunities which empower women to gain independence and self-sufficiency.
“It’s high time domestic abuse was brought out of the shadows,” said Mike Burke, owner of Fort Lauderdale Insurance Services. “We hope to ignite awareness, conversation, and fundraising for our local shelter. Making our community better and stronger is the ultimate goal of our Community Program, and getting women and their children the help they need to be safe and to thrive is something which should motivate us all.”
Fort Lauderdale Insurance has set a fundraising goal of $500, with the agency itself pledging to donate $10 for every referral they receive for a no obligation insurance quote over the two months the campaign is active. Readers may have a donation to this worthy cause made in their name simply by submitting recommendations of family and friends at http://www.flinsuranceservices.com/Help-Us-End-Domestic-Abuse_16_community_cause.
The agency’s caring team is mobilizing a vigorous email outreach initiative and social media to help spread the word. Additionally, the campaign is featured in this month’s issue of their vibrant community magazine, Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of households in greater Fort Lauderdale every month.
