Did you know one in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime? In DC alone, 31,232 calls were placed to 9-1-1 in 2009 related to domestic violence. I think that is so outrageous. The Capitol Fashionista stands with Hello Cupcake to support an end to domestic violence.

So help Hello Cupcake stand up to domestic violence! 100% of the sales of purple ribbon cupcakes today will go to support the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCCADV). Purchase early and often to support women and children who need our help.
