Show to Raise Funds for Victims and Survivors of Relationship Abuse
Press Release – LOS ANGELES, Calif. (December 7, 2017) — Emmy® Award-winning show Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen announces a new #WeAreGiving donation campaign in partnership with the National Domestic Violence Hotline (The Hotline) to raise funds for victims and survivors of relationship abuse. As the only crime show in daytime syndication, Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen is furthering its mission to help victims and survivors of crime. Relationship abuse affects one in four women and one in seven men, and also affects children, parents, friends and other concerned family members. The Hotline is a national nonprofit that receives 1,200 calls per day from people affected by relationship violence.
“Every day we hear another tragic story of someone trapped in a violent relationship who desperately needs help. Enough is enough. We are the show that crusades for victims and we can’t think of a more worthy cause for our Crime Watch Daily audience. We hope this initiative raises awareness and provides a lifeline for women and men in danger,” said Crime Watch Daily’s Executive Producers.
“We know that many of the people who reach out to the National Domestic Violence Hotline are one phone call or chat away from serious, if not deadly, violence,” said Katie Ray-Jones, CEO. “We are grateful to Chris Hansen, the Crime Watch Daily team and their viewers for helping to shine a light on domestic violence and dating abuse – an epidemic that impacts more than 12 million Americans a year.”

Through Crime Watch Daily and the support of our viewers, we can help ensure that when a survivor is ready to speak, someone at The Hotline is there to listen. One call to The Hotline costs about $20 to answer. Any donation amount can help answer the call to support and shift power back to the thousands of people who contact The Hotline each year.
