ASPIRE to end domestic violence — even toward just one person

I hope none of you, nor your loved ones, will ever be in an abusive situation. But I know it’s entirely possible. You may not even realize it. So it’s essential we all talk about help that’s available if we ever need it. Robin McGraw is leading an anti-domestic violence initiative called ASPIRE, and they have developed an *amazing* free app (iPhone and Android). In this linked article, from her visit to The Doctors TV show, Robin explains the initiative and walks through the app itself, which discreetly and sensitively provides information and also can instantly turn the phone into a secret alert signal and recording device. This technology can change lives! The campaign targets a spectrum of ages and materials are available in English and Spanish. Here’s the direct link to the campaign. Please share this information with EVERYONE. With your help, it may reach someone who needs this more than you’ll ever know!
