PRINCETON, NJ (Thursday, October 1, 2020) – VictimsVoice is announcing its newest partnership with The Halo App, a private, peer-lending community connecting people for loans up to $1,000. The two partners will launch and promote a donor promotion throughout October in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Halo launched in 2015 by introducing its services through The Halo App, where its mission is to “transform the way you define being free.” By using proprietary technology, it evaluates the financial health and trustworthiness of users outside the credit system.
“This partnership with The Halo App is incredibly significant for us as it attends to the most crucial need for victims: cash,” said Sheri Kurdakul, CEO of VictimsVoice.
According to a 2020 study by Freefrom, “Survivors report that they need, on average, $730 to stay safe.”
“It’s tough to not leave financial trails for a significant other to find, but victims still need some funding for help,” Kurdakul explained. “That’s what inspired us to kickstart our donor promotion.”
Individuals can donate a gift card where $10 of their donation will go to the VictimsVoice Halo Fund (VVHF). The fund will be money set aside in a separate chart of accounts until it reaches $800, where VictimsVoice will then become a live “Backer” on the Halo App for victims in need of cash.
The Halo App (THA) takes 10% as fees from every loan, so if a borrower requests $1,000, then $900 would go to their bank account. For this program, THA will take 2% of this money and roll it back into the fund so that it will always be able to back a victim “borrower.”
Additionally, the two partners are looking into offering a free t-shirt for anyone who donates $50 or more on top of the card donation. The shirt would include the saying “I’ve got your back” on the front with the VictimsVoice Halo Fund logo on the back of the shirt.
“After October, we will continue to offer the VVH Fund with additional higher cash donation amounts available. As part of our commitment to Pledge 1%, the VictimsVoice activation cards will remain the same price as part of this program.”
VictimsVoice is a tool that fixes the legal documentation burdens victims face when recalling details for reporting acts of violence, abuse, and harassment. It is built to meet HIPAA and VAWA compliance, as well as the strict legal standards (Daubert Standard) of court admissibility, and provides the evidence needed for legal teams to successfully hold offenders accountable.
