A Day in the Life with Jana Kramer: Raising Awareness of Domestic Violence with Safe Horizon
Landed at LaGuardia! Woot woot!! Can't wait for the special day ahead.
Ring fingernail purple to end domestic violence! Safe Horizon's #PutTheNailInIt campaign brings awareness to the fact that although 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence, 67 percent have never discussed the issue with their friends. By painting your left fingernail purple, you can show support and help open a conversation.
I visited with Safe Horizon, which operates the largest domestic violence shelter program in New York City (and the U.S.). They provide temporary housing to over 850 women and 1,100 children after they’ve escaped an abusive situation each year. Here I am touring the shelter. This was their living area to read books, etc. And I loved these quotes on the wall - "You are amazing, you are brave, you are strong." "Life is tough, my darling, but so are you."
With survivors of domestic abuse. I loved meeting them at the shelter and hearing their stories. We smile 'cause we are worth it! We hung out in the backyard where the kids play - blessed that there is a place like this so kids can be outside and feel safe.
Getting ready for the gala with my glam girls while FaceTiming my daughter Jolie. I miss every second that I'm away from her. I smile every time I see her.
I love this dress so much. (Thanks Alex!) I love my stylist so much. (Thanks Sonja!) Ready for the night.
Beyond honored to have received this award and met the survivors I did today. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence and need help, contact Safe Horizon at 1-800-621-HOPE or click here for more information.
