August 6, 2005 -- The “Lend Me Your Hand” Annual 50 State Domestic Violence Shelter Campaign continues to aid in providing much needed resources, services and support to women and children in shelters across the United States.
The 100 Words of Wisdom for Women: A 31 Day Exercise in Empowerment TM or OH WOW! TM (See: www.100WordsofWisdom.com) national book release is scheduled to kick-off this September. All students are welcomed to apply. Students interested in gaining valuable experience in non-profit development, publishing, marketing and public relations are strongly encouraged to apply for the Hiyaah Power Internship.
“Lend Me Your Hand” was established to serve as a conduit through which concerned individuals businesses, organizations and institutions of higher learning all over the country can support and encourage the most vulnerable members of our society: survivors of domestic violence and their families.
The “Lend Me Your Hand” core team consists of an ever-broadening group of concerned women who have dedicated themselves to this national call for action. The overall mission of the “Lend Me Your Hand” outreach effort is to coordinate leaders of the private, public and non-profit sectors to increase awareness of domestic violence prevention, facilitate multi-level sponsorship of critical resources for distribution to shelter residents across the U.S. and to provide shelter residents with basic resources and a much needed sense of community support.
The “Lend Me Your Hand” team seeks to heighten awareness of domestic violence prevention in this country as it delivers resources and support. Estimates range from 960,000 incidents of violence against a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend per year. One to three million women who are physically abused by their husband or boyfriend per year.
There is great need for involvement at all levels. Hiyaah Power, Inc., has developed a unique internship and volunteer program that provides students enrolled colleges and universities across the country to become involved in a national program that will change lives.
