A company called Meathead Movers located in California decided that they wanted to help end domestic violence, so they decided to donate their time and energy to helping anyone involved in a domestic violence situation move away from the violence they are living in for free. Moving people is hard enough work, but to donate that time and hard word for FREE is really saying a lot about the people in this company and the people they work for. Then as if that wasn’t enough- they have now gone another step into helping people involved in domestic violence by asking other companies to donate their services and time to help domestic violence victims. I first read about this story in The Huffington Post. They have posted on their company web site a place where they are asking people and companies to commit to donate their money, time, services or products to a local domestic violence shelter in their area to help their cause. I just love this! to actually hear a positive news story, to hear about people that care about other people and want to help them is so refreshing. I wish there wear more stories like this.
They have named their project, #MoveToEndDV and as of Monday, Meathead Movers has already gathered forty-two other businesses that have committed to using their company services to support their cause to help victims of domestic violence. There are still a lot more companies committing to their cause that are coming in on their website. The co-founder of Meathead Movers told The Huffington Post that they were getting all kinds of great commitments from people and companies. He says they have set a goal of one hundred companies but would certainly like more. They have had magazines commit to running articles every month about domestic violence, other moving companies donate free services to move people involved in domestic violence, free internet services, free website services, free computer services and free training classes, donations of money every year, free repair and maintenance to the shelters washers and dryers, free haircuts and facials for women at the shelters, a company donating furniture, dishes, linens, and bedding for victims new homes, free resort packages, free advertising space for companies donating, free boxes for packing, free unpacking and putting new home together services, free yoga classes and the shelters weekly, it just goes on and on.
It is so nice to see people getting involved in helping and caring about other people. It just seems like you don’t see much of this anymore. I love these types of articles and hope to see more.
