Chris Brown has it wrong: The world, at times, isn’t loyal. Society tends to be loyal to the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Their minds are consumed with their own problems or scrolling down their Facebook timeline to get a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s latest antics. As we enter into the holiday season and sit at our family dinner tables breaking bread and giving thanks, we can choose to un-follow society’s lead and ground ourselves into the spirit of giving to our fellowman in need. During November and December, stress runs high in most families. Finances are stretched to buy gifts or to travel to see family members. Seeing those family members we don’t quite get along with or not being able to see relatives and friends can add even more stress to a relationship. Excessive alcohol consumption is usually an added factor at this time of year. Sometimes our expectations of what should happen compared to what actually happens can give us the holiday blues. Many of us try to out do ourselves during the holidays and arguments happen. But what about abuse during the season? How can it be prevented?On Sunday, December 21 D.I.P. Foundation will be hosting its 2 Annual Food, Clothing & Toy Giveaway: 712 West Duval Street Jacksonville, FL 32202 at 2PM. The event’s purpose is to rally community supporters together in order to ease someone’s pain by bringing some holiday cheer to needy families in Jacksonville. We all endure our own challenges in our lives. We go through them so that we may be a beacon of light to others. Help someone know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The pressures of celebrating the holidays sometimes causes tempers to flare, energy levels to soar and arguments to ensue, culminating in an explosion of domestic violence and abuse. Parties, celebrations and festivities are everywhere and the temptation for excess can be intoxicating. Alcohol, drugs, heightened emotions and the wrong combination of family members, are very often contributing factors in violent holiday explosions. In fact, the holiday season can be an exceptionally tough emotional period for many domestic violence victims, even children. Most loving mothers will do whatever is necessary to create a fun and festive holiday environment for her children, however, for children living in a home where violence occurs, very often, Christmas represents a prolonged period of trepidation due to the anticipation of violence.
D.I.P. Foundation is anon-profit that is working to prevent and end domestic violence by developing innovative programs and events that:
“On Saturday, December 13, & Sunday December 14 from 1 – 4pm, D.I.P. Foundation invites children to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus!
