February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (#TDVAM).
“You have rights in your relationship.”*
You can set up boundaries for yourself and others.
No one has to live with violence in his or her relationship.
There are many ways teens are abused. Some are subtle.
The wheel here shows types of abuse, whether physical, emotional or sexual.
If you need help, you can text “LOVEIS” to 22522 to speak to an advocate, or visit loveisrespect.org.

Take Youth by the Hand and Lead Them
When you see a child, take them by the hand and lead them to a future they never imagined they could never had. At Innov-E Foundation, this is what we are endeavoring to do. It could be a teen in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, or anywhere else in the world or a child with special needs that might not even be able to communicate. All these children need an opportunity to find their niche in life or find a way to put some of their energy into a productive way by acting, writing, singing, photography, film producer or film director. We want to help children, no matter their financial, physical or mental capability to that chance.
We are in preliminary planning stages of holding an online and live art auction in South Florida and we need finances to do this. We are a new non-profit and we want to help artists from the Caribbean get exposure for their paintings as well as raise funds for our next project. Right now we need $6500. If you would like to help the future youth of our country and the world, take the time to go to our website and donate to Innov-E Foundation. Qualified donations are tax-deductible.
“The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.”
~Ray L. Wilbur, third president of Stanford University
