October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month…Tell a Gal P.A.L.

September 30, 2008 • Off-Topic


October isn’t only Breast Cancer Awareness month. Domestic violence impacts 74% of all Americans – personally or through someone they know. 
“Ugly Betty” star Ana Ortiz (“Hilda”) is partnering with The Allstate Foundation to encourage people to speak up and “Tell a Gal P.A.L.” – “Pass It On, Act & Learn.”

This word-of-mouth campaign encourages everyone to talk openly with “gal pals” about domestic violence. To kick off October’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Ana Ortiz is encouraging Americans to donate purses and professional bags now through October 3 at participating Allstate offices.  Through an Allstate Foundation partnership withOnna_ehrlich_purse_2
Dress for Success, the donated items will help provide professional attire to domestic violence survivors or women in need as they enter or re-enter the workforce and get back on their feet financially.

You will also have a chance to win an Onna Ehrlich purse from Ana’s own closet at ClickToEmpower.org while spreading the word about “Telling a Gal P.A.L.” Interested in donating? Visit ClickToEmpower.org to find a local donation location and other information regarding the program.
