24/7 Abusive Relationship Awareness Blog Hop



Welcome to the Abusive Relationship Awareness Blog Hop. While this may not be your typical blog hop theme, we decided to put together this hop in order to shed light on a topic that often goes unspoken about, when the truth is many of us have either been in an abusive relationship or know of someone who has. We're here not to celebrate abusive relationships, but to bring hope to those who have been firsthand or secondhand victims and to provide awareness to help put an end to this growing problem. 


All of our projects showcased in this hop have something to do with hope, love, and encouragement. The color for domestic violence is purple, and as you'll see purple was used on many of our projects.


I personally thank God that I haven't been in an abusive relationship but a really closed friend of mine did... she was strong enough to get out of it. I strongly believe that no one should put up with any type of abuse or violence for that matter... if someone really loves you it wouldn't hurt you.


For my project, I created a 5"x5" card... using a Kenny digi stamp which I think it is perfect for this project because sometimes we forget how stronger we are but we should rise above all to fight and become our own hero.






To help promote awareness for abusive relationships, eleven sponsors have been kind enough to offer almost $200 worth of prizes to those who participate in the blog hop. Yes, you read that correctly, there will be 11 PRIZE WINNERS. Let's see what prizes are being offered...

You did an awesome job on your card. I'm praising God that you Friend was able to get out. My cousin lost her life to an Abusive Relationship. She was going home the same day with the cops to leave him and he know some how and he shot her when she came through the doors. He ran and he died they while he was shooting at the cops. This is near and dear to me. TFS AJ~
