The Side Effects Campaign

Helping Victims of Domestic Violence find courage and support.



October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and JustMy is using our #TheSundayPaper platform to bring awareness and support to organizations around the country who are helping victims break free from the prison of Domestic Violence.

by: JR Robinson

This October, JustMy is using National Domestic Violence Awareness month to bring awareness to local non-profits that provide help and support for victims of domestic violence. The team here at JustMy is proud to announce a donation of $275,000 in media services for organizations that help serve the needs of victims.

The Facts about Domestic Violence

On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.

Nearly three in ten women (29%) and one in ten men (10%) in the US have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by a partner.

Nearly, 15% of women (14.8%) and 4% of men have been injured as a result of Intimate Partner Violence that included rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

One in four women (24.3%) and one in seven men (13.8%) aged 18 and older in the United States have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

Domestic violence has side effects that hurt in many cases far more than the pain of the abuse itself. Victims in many cases are isolated and left feeling trapped with no where to turn, no way to provide for themselves, and with a feeling of worthlessness. Many victims find themselves feeling like they are somehow at fault.

During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month the team here at JustMy is excited to spend the month sharing stories of life after domestic abuse and providing help and awareness to groups and organizations that provide resources for victims.

Helping Local Organizations

Part of the goal of the Side Effects Canpaign is to provide help and support for local organizations who are working with victims. JustMy is looking to team up with at least 185 organizations around the country. JustMy will provide $1500 in on-going media support to verified local organizations.

Organizations will receive a Profile page on JustMy, promotional support of events and programs, social promotions of events, press release and story coverage, and finally on-going tips and ideas for getting more donors, volunteers, and awareness of your programs. If you provide services to local victims, please submit the form below to be included in the Side Effects Campaign.
