With the new cool site by Keadworks, you can:

  • interact with their photo gallery & video over the years (Try this feature too)
  • read impactful stories of survival from victims around the world
  • subscribe and get alerts via email/mobile on the latest NEWS powered by a custom DV News Ticker.. and much more upcoming features for web and mobile

My Favorite Part:
What I love about this site.. victims around the world can easily submit stories to the website using their PCs or mobile phones – to share their moments of courage, strength and endurance before they successfully became survivors. They can do it with their real names or as an anonymous individual. I read one story yesterday that moved me and touched my heart completely.

I hope you will join me in supporting Becky’s Fund – let’s do all we can to End Domestic Violence together – SUBSCRIBE to the website to get invites for upcoming EVENTS, read their BF NEWS and follow Becky’s Fund on Facebook and Twitter.
