DVAM Domestic Violence Awareness Month

At Catalyst, we believe that Love Shouldn't Hurt. We just launched this t-shirt & sweatshirt campaign to share the message and help raise money for our growing Prevention and Education Program. The last day to buy is Sunday, September 29th. Once the campaign closes, as long as we've reached our sales goal, the shirts will go to print and will arrive at your home in 8-14 business days. They are set to arrive between October 8th-17th, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month—just in time for you to wear them to the Love Is Showcase! Click here to learn more.
