Founder & CEO

Donna Bartos founded BLOOM365 in 2006 as "Purple Ribbon Council to Cut Out Domestic Abuse," a grassroots volunteer-led movement to break the silence, break the cycle and save lives from domestic violence. In the early years, Donna mobilized a national network of stay at home moms to raise awareness and funds through "purple" themed "Girls Night Out to Cut Out Domestic Abuse" events at salons and spas and "Rock the Purple" concerts at Hard Rock Cafes to benefit, support and empower children orphaned by domestic violence. In 2010, she developed "Are you blooming or wilting?" a research-based root cause prevention education tool which remains the foundation of our mission, vision and work to this day. Donna has over 25 years experience in non-profit management, program development, marketing and fundraising. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from McDaniel College and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from Grand Canyon University.
