Nancy Travis of SABRA Sanctuary, a nonprofit domestic violence and sexual assault program, said when it comes to giving, “every little bit helps.”

“I think it’s a great opportunity, for us especially, because funding has been cut,” Travis said. “We’re really excited about the giving that can be done during this day. We invite everyone to get on the computer to SABRA Sanctuary and give at least $10.”
