JOYFUL HEART FOUNDATION

Dear Friend,

In the 24 hours since I emailed you, 29,520 people became victims of domestic violence or sexual assault.
The statistics are staggering:

Every minute, 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner.

Every two minutes, someone is sexually assaulted.

One in three women experience sexual or physical violence in their lives.

One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused or assaulted before their 18th birthdays.

This violence is preventable. And healing is possible.

Yesterday, I wrote to you about Joyful Heart’s signature retreat programs and the work we are doing to make this healing experience available to even more survivors.

Can you help us? Your gift today will guarantee that more survivors benefit from Joyful Heart’s retreats—and take the next step in their healing journey.

29,520 people in the past 24 hours. 20 people in the minute it took you to read this note. You can help change it today.

Please, give what you can.

With gratitude,
Maile Zambuto
Chief Executive Officer
Joyful Heart Foundation
