How to Get Involved

Businesses pledge 25% of the day’s proceeds on 10/24 to JOIN THE MOVEMENT and support survivors of violence. All official participants of the campaign will be listed here on the Paint 757 Purple official website and across social media channels. Samaritan House will promote these partners throughout the month of October, encouraging the public to come out and support you on Paint 757 Purple Day. There are opportunities for media exposure and on-air mentions as this campaign continues to grow in popularity across our region! Own a business that doesn’t have a storefront or physical location? That’s fine! We’d love to talk with you about how you can be part of this year’s campaign.

About the Campaign

Originating in 2017, the Paint 757 Purple campaign has brought in support from more than 70 different businesses as well as local media and news outlets. What started as an innovative way to grow our support base from our 5k fundraising event in past years, turned into a meaningful way for businesses to get their employees and customers talking about the realities of domestic violence and how to be part of the solution. In its second year, the Paint 757 Purple campaign grew to include a new element, where we literally painted 757 purple thanks to a beautiful awareness mural in the ViBe Creative District thanks to local artist, Devon Miller. You can visit the mural at The Annex Collaborative Studio and read more about that project HERE.

Our goal for the P757P campaign is twofold: to raise funds for the programs that help victims of violence break free from their abusers for good, and continue to raise awareness throughout our community to ensure that people know where to turn if themselves or a loved one are ever in need of help.


October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this year we’re inviting local businesses in Hampton Roads to participate in a unique way.

Domestic violence is an issue that is so difficult to talk about, but so important to bring to light. The latest statistics from the World Health Organization show that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 41% of homicides that occur right here in Virginia are related to intimate partner violence.

For the last 30 years, Samaritan House has been a leader in the movement to end domestic and sexual violence across Hampton Roads. We offer comprehensive support services and housing to men, women and children in need of safety and support. Last year, Samaritan House served over 4,000 individuals with housing, case management, children’s services, and education resources.
