Clever Idea in the Battle against Domestic Violence

While attending an educational luncheon on the topic of domestic violence, I was acquainted with a novel way for care providers to give out domestic hot-line phone numbers, a method likely to fly under the radar of the abuser.

The agency phone numbers are either printed on a clear sticker that can be adhered to a tube of lip gloss or printed directly on the chapstick/lip balm in what looks like a bar code number. That way the victim of violence has the phone number at the ready in her purse or his pocket when she/he decides the time has come to seek outside help.

This is genius on several levels.
