Breast Cancer Awareness – October

So here it is… every year I’ve always focused the month of October on Domestic Violence Awareness and really never did anything around Breast Cancer Awareness. It’s been heavy on my heart to do something this week so I started a kickstarter campaign. With your pledge we will be able to purchase ingredients to make 1000+ Klean Boobs soaps :). Yessssss!!! We will be blessing survivors and warriors of breast cancer with vegan soaps shaped as a boob :).

I can’t imagine how hard it is to fight this battle. I only witness it from afar as my mom passed away 12 years ago from her battle. Doing something whether big or small to put a smile on the faces of women everyday facing this battle will bring a smile to all those that take  part. Please take a moment to look at our campaign. Any amount is truly appreciated. “Klean Boobs” Breast Cancer Awareness Soaps https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/434876451/klean-boobs-breast-cancer-awareness-soaps also please share with others.

** pictured below is our domestic violence and breast cancer awareness ribbon soaps. We will have pictures for our Klean Boobs soaps soon and will post them when we do.

Thank you. xo Donata

We are so excited to be launching this campaign… Give the gift of… how can you make an impact on a young one’s life? Which gift would you want them to take away with your donation? Empowerment, Freedom, Peace? Those are just a few things that our young women can take away by reading DONATA: In the Mind of a Victim.

Here is what one reader wrote after reading the book… “I commend Donata for sharing her story. She is candid in the telling of her story and the reader will be deeply affected. I admire her courage for ending her abusive marriage and I applaud her for explaining her reasons for staying so many years under the thumb of such violence. With her unabridged candor she opens the door to a sensitive, ignored and misunderstood topic.

Not only does Donata share her experience with domestic violence but she gives signs for women to be aware of a potential abuser. Statistics are noted leaving you staggered. She also includes several organizations providing aid.

This is a must read for females of all ages, learn the signals, educate yourself on the myriad of ways abuse reveals itself. Donata discusses the phases of abuse, again doling out preventative information so measures can be taken and awareness is commonplace. This is not only a story of a woman’s survival but a handbook of sorts for empowerment.

The greatest gift we can give females is the gift of knowledge, empowerment and self esteem. The value of self worth is essential in the fight against domestic violence.

After I read Donata’s story it occurred to me society continually asks the ignorant question of Why didn’t she leave? Why does/did she stay? INSTEAD society should be asking the ABUSER Why did you hit her? How could you do that to a woman? Why didn’t you get help? Why? The questions need to be answered AND directed to the ABUSER NOT THE VICTIM/SURVIVOR.

I am a survivor, albeit not anywhere on the level of Donata’s situation. I was four months pregnant when I experienced my FIRST AND LAST taste of domestic violence. I walked away immediately and never returned, vowing to never be treated as such in this lifetime again. No one knew of my situation, not surprising since society assumes all is well if signs aren’t obvious, stereotypes aren’t fed. What goes on behind closed doors is unknown until it escalates to the point of recognition.

Once again, this is a must read, this could save a life, be the life ring someone desperately needs, this could be the answer the woman behind unsuspecting closed doors needs. Donata’s story could end the torture a 16 year old girl is facing but doesn’t know where or who to turn to due to fear or embarrassment. Highly highly recommend this informative and inspiring story depicting the facts and truth of domestic violence from a woman who survived seven years of hell, desperate to piece together her life and that of her son. A brutally honest voice from the mind of a victim turned survivor.” ~Melinda.

Updated about me

So I updated my about page for my blog as we are always growing, changing and doing new things :).

About Donata… ummmm there are so many parts of me and so much I want to do to touch the lives of millions. I started to take different roads to tackle different aspects of people lives using different channels but that caused me to lose track. Being ADHD that is so easy to fall into being “all over the place” mode 24/7. So I’m going to bring it all together here. Although I started this blog just to be about my life and ADHD there are so many other things I love to talk about. So I’m bringing all of me to you via … Mind • Body • Spirit :).

What do I do when I’m not blogging I started DONATA which is a natural product line. So far we make all natural soaps, lotions, creams, scrubs, salves and will be adding more products to the line over the years. One day I’ll blog on how all that came about, it’s a crazy story. Then I have the foundation Adding Doses of HOPE Daily which I started in 2010. I love being able to give back to the community and helping others especially our teens. So this pretty much sums me up :).
