Rock Island, IL-Domestic violence is a pervasive problem in our community. It is a silent predator that affects one out of every four women and, typically, impacts several generations of family members. In recognition of national domestic violence awareness this month, Christian Care and Diamonds on the Avenue are teaming up to provide an exclusive offer that is available only in October but will help raise awareness all year long. Diamonds on the Avenue designed a one-of-a-kind necklace just for this occasion: a purple pendant that changes color in the sun and houses a floating diamond with a very special meaning.
Purple is the color of domestic violence awareness. The floating diamond signifies the domestic violence survivor who is a diamond in the rough, yet still shining through her pain. The necklace design pays homage to all who are currently suffering from the effects of domestic violence, those who survived and are thriving, and those who, sadly, did not survive. This necklace is sure to be a conversation started and, when people ask about it, both Diamonds on the Avenue and Christian Care hope that the story behind the necklace's design will raise awareness for a lifetime.
Take a stand against domestic violence: join Christian Care and Diamonds on the Avenue by purchasing a pendant from this special collection. Wear your purple pendant and floating diamond close to your heart. Pendants start at $49.00. Diamonds on the Avenue will donate $10 from every purchase of these rare pendants to Christian Care's domestic violence shelter.
Every dollar donated makes a difference. 98% of the women who complete Christian Care's holistic programs go on to live independent lives, free of their abusers. Purchase your pendant now at Diamonds on the Avenue located at 3320 East Kimberly Road in Davenport, right down the road from Red Lobster.
