Amarillo, Texas - Tens of thousands of women are victims of domestic abuse everyday, and one Amarillo woman is doing her part to put an end to it.
She's donating 25% of the proceeds from the sale of her new book to Family Support Services. Saturday night was the book launch of "The Worm Fiasco" by Carrie-Anne O'Driscoll... It tells her own story of an abusive relationship, and encourages others to seek help if they're in a similar situation.
She says, "It feels amazing, because I was lucky. In my situation 10 years ago I had a supportive family with both of my parents, I had a place to go. There are so many women that stay in abusive relationships, men too because the have no where else to go. And Family Support Services help provide a place of safety where people can get back on their feet and move on with their lives."
