Dear Scouts:

In my role as First Lady of Kentucky, I have supported many causes, most of which involve the health and well-being of our women and families.  Domestic violence is one of the most devastating problems a family can face.  It affects people of all races, religions, and economic levels. This is why it is so important to support the shelters that offer a safe haven to victims of domestic violence.

Next year, we will host the 6th Annual Shop & Share on Saturday, February 1, 2014.  As a result of everyone’s generosity, we have been able to raise over $2 million in needed goods and monetary donations.  These donations have gone a long way in helping the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association (KDVA) shelters during these rough economic times

I am so proud of the fact that young women involved in Kentucky’s Girl Scout programs are eager to step up and support those who find themselves victims of domestic violence.  It is my hope that by becoming educated about this issue, you will be less likely to become victims yourselves. 

I hope you will volunteer to support Shop & Share.  Because of your involvement, many victims of domestic violence will have a chance at a new beginning.

                                                           

 Sincerely,
