Raise your hand to the Challenge

The end of Domestic Violence Awareness Month is creeping ever closer. This month, we have talked about the dynamics of abuse, recovery, healing, and awareness. When October draws to an end, we hope you will not forget the following:

  • Abuse happens far more than you think
  • It happens everywhere, to men and women, to rich and poor, to young and old
  • Physical violence is NOT the only destructive form of abuse
  • Domestic Abuse can only continue when it stays behind closed doors.

We are committed to raising awareness and offering a place where targets become survivors. We will continue our work, but we cannot do this by ourselves.

So we ask for your help!

We need all the help we can get, and whether your contribution is sharing a post on social media, volunteering for the site, or making a cash donation we are grateful!

Here’s What You Can Do

Sharing is Caring. SwanWaters uses social media to share information and support to targets and survivors. Help us get the word out by sharing our social media posts far and wide. You never know who is suffering behind closed doors, so you could be saving the life of one of your friends! So give us a follow on your favorite social media platform: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram or Tumblr.

Walk the walk, but more importantly talk the talk. Too often the topics of domestic violence, emotional abuse, and emotional trauma are swept under the rug. By keeping the conversation going you can help raise awareness, and you give targets the important signal that they are not alone.

Can your story help others? Even if you feel you have overcome your own abusive experience, your story could help others do the same. Why not join our forum to share your story or become a guest blogger?

Can you help someone become a member? If you can afford a donation, we would be very grateful! Donations are used to help the running of the site, and to be able to provide scholarships for people in need who cannot afford the membership. Find out more about the options for donating.

With Your Help, More Targets Become Survivors ♥



Having gained experience while working for a variety of European non-profits, I am proud to now work with SwanWaters. My connection with the website is not only professional. I am glad to tap into my personal experiences to help those who are living in toxic relationships whether with parents, partners or in their professional life. We need to make the world more aware of the devastating effects of emotional abuse and help more people on their way to heal and thrive.
