Black Friday – Our pledge to help end domestic abuse
Posted in News on 26 November 2020
For Black Friday 2020, we’re doing something a bit different and supporting the crisis charity Hestia and its ‘UK SAYS NO MORE‘ campaign.
Now we know you’re probably being bombarded with Black Friday emails offering discounts for anything from socks to televisions, but we think that if there is one thing we have learnt this year, it’s that taking care of one another is more important than anything.
A panorama investigation showed that two-thirds of women in abusive relationships have suffered more violence from their partners during the pandemic.
UK SAYS NO MORE is a national campaign, launched in 2016 to raise awareness and end domestic abuse and sexual violence.
Domestic abuse and sexual violence can impact anyone, at any point in their life, regardless of their background, age, gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status or sexuality.
Doxdirect are pledging to give 10% of their sales on Black Friday, from midnight tonight until midnight tomorrow (Friday 27th November) to the campaign.
A gift to Hestia’s UK SAYS NO MORE campaign will enable them to help direct survivors towards support services and equip bystanders with the tools and knowledge needed to safely aide loved ones and neighbours experiencing violence during this unprecedented crisis.
In addition to this, Doxdirect will be participating in the SAFE SPACES initiative in collaboration with Royal Mail Group. We will be placing a discreet portal on our website that opens in a pop-up window. The service provides support, advice and helpful contact numbers for those at risk of experiencing domestic abuse. Accessing the portal leaves no internet history trace and provides quick exit options for the person seeking information. Look out for this on our website in the coming weeks.
We hope you’ll agree that this is a worthwhile cause, and join us in helping to end domestic abuse.
