Women Shelters: Day Six A Week Of Holiday Giving To Women In Need

Women shelters in your neighborhood are day six of A Week Of Holiday Giving To Women In Need.

Christmas is all about giving. You put a lot of effort into finding that perfect present to delight your loved ones, anticipating their joy and happiness as they open them. Christmas is also the ideal opportunity to give back. You can help those less fortunate and contribute to making the world a better place this year.

It is easy to dismiss the effort, after all the world is a big place and there is so much need. Money is always a blessing, but you can also give of your time. In fact, there are some amazing opportunities to work with international organizations.

AT FORTY FIVE has put together a list of organizations with international reach. Although many are headquartered in the USA, they have branches around the world.

Helping Women In Your Neighborhood

You do not have to go out of your own neighborhood to help women. Sadly, there are women’s shelters everywhere. Forty-five countries provide women shelter services.

Many women will be seeking refuge from domestic violence over the holiday season. Statistics show incidents occur over the holiday nearly threefold and one in three women will experience physical violence during their life.

Not having your own safe surroundings or the expectation that you will wake up Christmas morning to a joyful event is simply a heartbreaking reality. Many women do not have the resources to escape violence without the support of others. Often children are involved.

Shelters also provide short-term solutions for housing in cities where rents are prohibitive. Many support women with drug addiction, mental health challenges, or women in the sex trade.

In many cases, women suffer from poor self-esteem and lack self-confidence. Consider giving self-care items to your local shelter; beautiful nightshirt, bubble bath, perfume, skincare starter sets. Empower a woman this holiday.
