The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) proudly accepts all funds via donations and retail sales. The funds will be evenly distributed to Purple Purse nonprofits serving domestic violence victims and survivors nationwide.

Lori got out.
But it shouldn’t be this hard.

Physically, mentally and emotionally abused, Lori knew she had to get out, but she couldn’t. Her husband controlled all the finances, imprisoning her in her own marriage.

To escape, Lori painstakingly tucked away small amounts of money in one place her abusive husband wouldn’t think to look – a box of tampons. After two years, she finally had enough to hire a divorce lawyer.
