I have mentioned this lady before, the one who actually survived meeting me under the clock at Waterloo Station in London, and chatting with me while her amazingly patient husband watched the sight of two bloggers realising the other one was a real person.
Her sister was murdered by her own husband in May 2010, and on the 31st May this year she is holding a walk to help raise funds needed to keep awareness for this issue near the front of our minds. Read her Blog at http://myinnerchick.com and you will soon get a sense of what kind of admirable person she is, and more about the issues she deals with.
Domestic violence and bullying of all kinds is often done under the cover of privacy while the bully maintains a charming and smiling exterior for the world at large.

On a technical point, it is a matter of some sadness that the link to the donation page has not come out in a pleasing pinky kind of colour to show it is a link, but I have copy and pasted said link into the appropriate space and it does take you to the right page. As always, I apologise for my technical limitations and hope they do not prevent you supporting this most important cause.
