Greeting Fam-

As some of you may or may not know, I am a certified Battered Women’s Counselor as well as a  survivor of Domestic Violence. In 2005, I lost a very special friend at the hands of her husband. He stabbed my friend multiple times and killed her… because she wouldn’t give him money for drugs. You didn’t know Adrienne, but I did. She was always smiling. She worked with people with disabilities and just like a human service professional, linked up with a man that needed her help too. She loved the Lord and was one of those people that if you asked her to pray, she’d stop and do it. I remember when I told her I was getting married… she left work, went home and got her wedding dress and made me try it on in the office. That was the last time I saw her.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and although it’s a few months away, it’s never too early to get started. Old cell phones are used by DV shelters and hotlines to offer victims (both male & female victims) a safety plan. The phones can only dial 911 and are often the link that saves lives.

DV

On behalf of Ghetto Govt #TeamQueen Daughters of Zion, I will be collecting old cell phones from now until 10/3/13 to donate to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. If you would like to donate a phone or collect multiple phones to donate, please email queentheprophet@hotmail.com put DV PHONES in the subject line.  If you are in need of help and have questions about where you can get it, (In Connecticut) dial Infoline 211 for 24/7 crisis counselors and referral specialists.

Outside of Connecticut, contact the NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
