MESA, Ariz. –
The Giving Season is here and there are so many ways to help support Control Alt Delete and the work we do helping people escape domestic violence.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men are being abuse right now https://ncadv.org/STATISTICS
Someone you know is trying to figure out how to escape.
Control Alt Delete provides one time assistance in helping people escape domestic abuse. When a referral comes in from a victim advocate, prosecutor office or crisis response team we immediately work to find solutions that remove the barriers keeping those Survivors in unsafe situations. Since Control Alt Delete is 100% volunteer run $1 of every single dollar donated goes directly towards helping Survivors escape.
Let’s look at all the different and unique ways you can help this Giving Season:
- Donation Drives
- Wish Lists
- Roundup App
- Fry’s Community Rewards
- Amazon Smile
- AZ Tax Credit
- Holiday Hero
- $12.28 a month Saves Lives
- “Change” Lives pocket change collection
- Decorate the virtual Control Alt Delete Christmas tree
- Hold a “Safe for the Holidays” social media fundraiser
Donation Drives are a fun and engaging way to help Survivors of domestic violence. Control Alt Delete gives a BIN Bin (basic immediate need basket) full of hygiene items and essentials to every in-person escape allowing the Survivors dignity in not having to ask for necessities. A very fun way to collect these items is the Control Alt Delete Reverse Advent Calendar.
Grab a basket and add an item each day.
Hold a donation drive at your work, you school, your gym, your daycare, your neighborhood.
While BIN Bin items are necessities the Control Alt Delete Safety Kits provide much needed safety measures to Survivors escaping domestic violence. A donation drive for Safety Kit items goes a long way to helping Survivors heal and feel safe again.
Collect items that help Survivors feel safe again.
BIN Bin items and Safety Kit items can be found on many of the Control Alt Delete wish lists; another easy way to help.

As we enter the giving season consider donating to grassroot nonprofit organizations.
Some things to think about when giving:

Where will you donation likely have the biggest impact?
Can you designate how the funds are used?
1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men are being abused right now. Someone you know is suffering from domestic abuse.
For Control Alt Delete – a grassroot nonprofit agency a donation of any amount is significant to our mission. Since we are volunteer run 100% of every single donation goes directly towards helping people escape abuse. $1 of every dollar saves lives.
You can designate how a donation is specifically used at Control Alt Delete.
Designate by service: Transportation, Lodging, Food & Essentials, Security
Designate by Survivor: Moms, dads, woman, man, Veteran, with pets.
You can donate $5 and designate it for a gas gift card to go to a mom with pets and $5 will help a mom, her kids and pets escape domestic abuse.
