The Hop to STOP 2016


It's time for the 3rd Hop To STOP with Becca Cruger.

Purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. 
Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet.

From October 15-30, Becca Cruger be hosting the 3rd annual Hop to STOP Domestic Violence. The Hop is designed to raise awareness for victims and survivors of domestic violence. 

How can you be involved?

1. Link up a card
that *features* the color purple during the hop October 15-30 and show your support!

2.  Hop along!
The first year Becca did this, she wasn't expecting the tumult of what happened. Bloggers from all around the world were sharing their own stories and receiving encouragement from one of the most supportive communities out there (crafters of course!).

3. Send a card.
During the Hop, you can send Becca cards that will be delivered to the Community Violence Intervention Shelter in Grand Forks, ND - a nonprofit that provides emergency shelter, counseling, supportive services, and safe visitation.

More information can be found on Becca's Hop To STOP event FACEBOOK PAGE.  Please join the event, share with friends, and feel free to grab that image above to put into your sidebar!

HERE
is the link to Becca's Blog post introducing The Hop To STOP,
it is also the place where you get to link your purple cards.

I look forward to making a purple card or two and to helping raise awareness for victims and survivors of domestic violence, I hope you will too.
