Dollar a day

My mother grew emotional the first time she told me about Tyaisha Leary. Her eyes filled with tears as she talked about the terrible night in 2009 when Ms. Leary's ex-boyfriend set her house on fire, killing sons Taevon and Michael. You can read more about this sad, sad story here.

Northeastern Pennsylvania has a domestic violence problem but, it's hardly alone. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women will personally experience domestic violence. That is simply unacceptable. 

The horror of Tyaisha Leary's story prompted my mom Linda to take action to helping others. I, in turn, have been inspired by her work as a member of the board of the Women's Resource Center and have pledged my support via WRC's Dollar a Day program.

It doesn't have to be a recurring contribution like I'm making (although that would be sweet). Any amount of support is appreciated.
