#Elktober is nearly over, but you can still vote!

Vote for CAPS Purple Penelope in the Purple Elk Challenge!

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and YWCA North Central Indiana and CAPS are joining forces in Elkhart to raise awareness of the ways domestic violence often intersects with child abuse and neglect.

1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year.

Join us in bringing awareness to this issue by participating in the Purple Elk Challenge! Teams, or herds as they're known to elk, will be covering Elkhart in purple, the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. You can vote for your favorite elk to win by making a donation at the elk's personal fundraising page. Visit the elk in the "wild" and take pictures with them, using hashtag #Elktober to share them with all your fellow elk watchers!

All proceeds from the event will be split between YWCA North Central Indiana and CAPS to prevent domestic violence and child abuse.

The winning elk will be the elk that raises the most donations throughout the month of October. The winner will be announced on Friday, November 4th. Visit www.ywca.org/purpleelk for more information and to vote! And please vote for Purple Penelope today to help us hit our first $200 goal!
