Real Housewives race to "Heel the Soul"
Just in time for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, real housewife Nene hosted Heel the Soul event. For those of you who follow the show, you know that both Nene Leakes and Lisa Wu-Hartwell are survivors of domestic abuse. I am so happy to see that they are active advocates for women in similar situations. In this week's episode, Lisa and Nene had a touching conversation about their experiences and how it affected their self esteem. I certainly encourage you to catch the episode.
Also, Marshalls' Shop 'Til it Stops initiative is a great incentive go shopping while supporting a great cause:
"For every pair of shoes you buy in our stores from October 1st through October 15th, we’ll donate $1* to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, which provides crisis intervention and referral to survivors, their family and friends."
