General Welfare ("PTGW")*
* I Do For You. You Donate To A Cause.TM
Domestic violence of all kinds is a serious and endemic problem all over the world also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence, and intimate partner violence (IPV), has been broadly defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors by one or both partners in an intimate relationship such as marriage, dating, family, or cohabitation. Domestic violence, so defined, has many forms, including physical aggression (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, slapping, throwing objects), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (e.g., neglect); and economic deprivation. Alcohol consumption and mental illness can be co-morbid with abuse, and present additional challenges when present alongside patterns of abuse.
Awareness, perception, definition and documentation of domestic violence differs widely from country to country, and from era to era.

Promote The General Welfare
*The Concept of PTGW
Many people would like to support a cause but may not have money to donate. There is an indirect yet extremely effective method I call: Promote The General Welfare ("PTGW"). I propose people volunteer service for others in their circle-of-influence. Those people compensate for benefit received by donating to a cause named by the volunteer. This can be summed up: "I do for you. You donate to a cause."
When individually aggregated or applied to groups such as, political parties, scientific associations, student unions, humanitarian causes, etc., it is a significant wealth building method which simultaneously includes community service (a win), increases an individual's GDP (a win), increases the GDP of the nation (a win), and provides funding for great societal causes (a win). It starts with one person helping another (i.e. community service). As this idea spreads the corpus of donors expands considerably.
