Goal: To purchase 120 books to donate to teens through Adding Doses of HOPE Daily Foundation. We would love, in the near future to purchase 1000 books to donate. This will be the first Kickstart campaign to work towards that goal… UPDATE… we've reached our goal of $1000 to purchase 120 books, now we've moved on to reaching $2000 to purchase 240 books. HOW EXCITING IS THAT :).
There is no better feeling then to know that during this holiday season you will personally be a part of making a change in the life of an individual. With your donation we will purchase more books that will be offered during our workshops. Our workshops will cover the topics in the book DONATA: In the Mind of a Victim… our goal is prevention not intervention. If we can get to our teens before they are caught up in an abusive relationship we can decrease the statistics of women that are victims of abuse.
Growing up I didn't see relationships where there was domestic violence involved so surviving a 7 year abusive relationship and now sharing my story is powerful. Unfortunately domestic violence happens more then we ever want to imagine. One out of 3 teens and 1 out of 4 women we be, have been or are currently in an abusive relationship. How many teens and women do you know? My own sister didn't know that I was in an abusive relationship. She noticed I wasn't acting the same and she didn't like my boyfriend but she never knew what I went through till I wrote my blog 2 years ago.
This book is powerful. It not only tells my story but explains the steps I took to rebuild myself. Knowing how to come out is half the battle, learning how to stay out is the other half. This book is for all to read, those watching a loved one deal with an abusive partner, those that have come out of an abusive relationship and for individuals that need an extra kick to build themselves up so they don't find themselves in an abusive relationship. One organization we are looking to partner with alone book count need is 200.
Mental, emotional and physical abusive happens everyday. Help us spread awareness through your donation.
Here are some of the young girls that we have been working with over the past year through our foundation, Adding Doses of HOPE Daily www.adhdfdn.org. We want to touch the lives of many more teens.
Thank you ~Donata Joseph
Risks and challenges
We don't foresee any risks with our project. We are already conducting one program with a group of teens at a local high school. With the launch of this book we look forward to providing the girls in this program and expanded programs the opportunity to receive a copy of this book. Offering more workshops around this book is our goal. As we raise money to purchase more books we will continue to add more workshops.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
