CORAL GABLES, Fla., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Domestic violence continues to be one of the most critical issues impacting Florida's families and children. You may be surprised to learn that children represent nearly fifty percent of the residents in emergency shelter at any given time. In fact, during the 2013/14 Fiscal Year, Florida's 42 certified domestic violence centers provided emergency shelter to 15,611 individuals, 7,219 were children. Florida's 42 certified domestic violence centers are the primary lifeline for domestic violence victims and their children. Through my work with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV), I have learned that our domestic violence centers employ a comprehensive and seamless approach to providing services to domestic violence survivors and their children. In an effort to increase private revenue for our state's domestic violence centers, I became a founding board member of the FCADV Foundation, whose goal is to create a statewide, private revenue stream to ensure that life-saving services for domestic violence victims and their children are less dependent on government resources. On October 25, Jeb and I hosted the third annual "Door to Hope" fundraising event that benefits the Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of many, the event generated in excess of $400,000 net revenue, with a three year total of approximately 1 million dollars. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and purple is designated as the campaign's signature color. It is the month we coordinate our efforts to create a "top of mind awareness" of the impact that domestic violence has in our state, our communities, and our families. Perhaps you noticed purple bows hanging on a friend's front door or received an invitation to a fundraising event for your local domestic violence center. Perhaps you turned on your television to see a Public Service Announcement that displayed the…

NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Design-driven audio accessory brand me.u today announced the winner of its earphone design contest with Pratt Institute, a global leader in higher education. Ten Pratt students – five in its Fashion program and five in its Industrial Design program -- participated in the "sponsored studio" that challenged them to develop designs for the next generation of me.u's high-quality earphones. The winning design was created by 21-year-old Tiverton, RI native Chantal Galipeau, a senior Fashion major. "It was a difficult decision for us, as the Pratt students presented so many exciting designs," said Johan Persson, Creative Director, C'Monde Studios, an award-winning Swedish industrial design studio based in Hong Kong that is the creative force behind the me.u brand. "But Chantal's design stood out for its boldness and innovation. It fits well with our brand's style aesthetic, and we feel it will speak to today's young creatives." "I draw a lot of my inspiration from the vibrancy of New York City," Galipeau explained. "I live in Brooklyn and am surrounded by rich colors and textures every time I walk down the street. So I tried to embody that energy in my design." As part of the contest, Pratt students were tasked with choosing materials and selecting color palettes and finishes for their new earphone design. Galipeau opted for a slick teal color scheme, inspired by Adelphi St. in Brooklyn and made from brushed aluminum with a silver plastic finish. The student designs had to fit the aesthetics of me.u's original product line, which was introduced earlier this year. The company's earphones embrace a colorful and bold street style that appeals to its target market of students and young creatives. Pratt faculty members provided guidance to the students, as did designers from C'Monde Studios. "We were…
