Through the “B.A.B.E. Stop the Violence Campaign”, we are raising funds to assist various Bay Area Non-profit organizations who specialize in helping women and children (victims) of domestic violence and abuse. Statistics have proven that 1 in every 4 women will experience some kind of physical assault in her lifetime. It is important to bring this travesty out of the shadows and into the light. With your assistance, we can help those directly affected; their families and even their communities get the support they need.
