As much as I love my BlackBerry world, it’s not often that I can say I get to cover something that is truly important. Today I am telling you about a theme developer that has stepped outside of his comfort zone and not only addressed an important issue but shared something personal along with it. Jake from BlackBerry ThemePark let me know about his new Domestic Violence Awareness Theme yesterday and I admit I was taken back slightly when I read the post. Jake has shared how Domestic Violence affected his own life and has done an incredible job with his theme as well. The theme is $6.99 and an incredible 50% of all the profits from theme sales will be donated to support the cause.
Domestic Violence Facts:
- An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
- One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
- Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police.
- Almost one-third of female homicide victims that are reported in police records are killed by an intimate partner.
