I'm a supporter...

I bought this necklace some time ago because domestic violence has hit home at one point in time. I rather not relive the moments or the experience, but I can tell you that the fear is real. I would not wish "it" on my worst enemy. Domestic violence happens to you when you least expect it and you don't even realize that you are a victim of domestic violence until the damage is done.
All I can say is that I am proud to support Safe Horizon. They have a full range of services for anyone in NY that has been affected by domestic violence, rape and/or stalking. The services range from immediate telephone lines for any assistance and support, to a counseling center, to providing immediate shelter and afterwards a transitional home as they work on finding a home free of violence.

Marie Claire has joined with Safe Horizon to promote the Fundraising Circle Necklace. The lenght can be 16" to 18". The necklace has a free floating textured circle. $4 per necklace will go to benefit Safe Horizon. The price is $19.95. You can buy it at Netaya, the merchant authorized to sell this necklace.

I would also like to mention that Eva Longoria had the necklace on one of the Desperate Housewives episode. I am proud of her for representing for all of us.

Hey, I am utterly impressed with your sense of style and your passion for fashion. You always talk about style and fashion and I (with my lack of style) tend to dismiss your comments. But, I have seen the light, this is your true calling, you speak, write and dress like a true fashionista.

Also thanks to your blog I have bought the Circle Necklace. “I am a Supporter” too.
