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.

Domestic Violence Workshop

October 20, 2012, Donata Joseph, Founder of Adding Doses of HOPE Daily Foundation conducted 3 workshops with children ages 8 – 18 during Domestic Violence Awareness month. In this workshop, she spoke about her story of surviving an abuse relationship of 7 years. It was amazing to see the kids/teens asking so many questions on why she stayed so long, what her thought process was during the relationship and more. The education needs to start earlier for our youth.

Adding Doses of HOPE Daily Foundation’s mission is to encourage, empower and elevate individuals and families with resources that will improve their overall mental and emotional wellness. Our Foundation offers several programs to individuals from all walks of life. Through our programs women, men and teens are challenged to work on deep core issues in hopes of healing from the inside out. Our programs and events focus on challenges from everyday life where we put our E³ (Encourage • Empower • Elevate) spin on it.

The foundation believes that it takes hard work and unity to impact our community. Therefore, we have created several partnerships with other agencies, faith based organizations and schools in the Tri County Area of (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties). Through these partnerships we have been able to connect with various organizations and make an impact one person at a time. One of our collaborations has resulted in our Annual Women’s Empowerment Expo during Domestic Violence Awareness month.

Adding Doses of HOPE Daily looks to continue making connections with different organizations to empower our families as a unit and especially our youth. Our youth are our future, we aspire to build their character and give them the confidence they need to face every aspect of their lives. Allow us to E³ you, your organization or your teen(s).
