Domestic Violence Month Update

By now many of you have heard or read about the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of three members of actress Jennifer Hudson’s family. Hudson’s mother, brother, and nephew were found shot to death earlier this week in Chicago. While the police have not arrested anyone in connection with crime, Hudson’s brother-in-law remains a person of interest in the case and is currently being held on other charges. This sad story has brought extensive media coverage to a topic we’ve been discussing all month – domestic violence in America. In addition to supporting a highly-rated charity on our site with a monetary donation, you can also help with a non-cash donation to your local shelter. The three-star Shelter for Abused Women & Children in Naples, Florida is looking for many non-perishable food items.
