You have decided to take a stand and help bring awareness to domestic violence, thank you! To break this cycle of violence we must bring this epidemic out from behind closed doors. Awareness is key and funds are needed to support these survivors as they move into a life free of abuse.
The number one reason people give money is because they are asked. For real. This is lesson #1 — you need to ask for donations. Lesson #2 is — the worst response you can get is “no.” You ask for a donation and someone says “no.” No big deal. Thank that person, say “have a great day” and move on. Because lesson #3 is — lots of people will say “yes.”
