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.

  • We are wildly passionate about uprooting abuse.

  • We honor promises by showing up.

  • No victim blaming, ever.

  • We Bring Love On Others More, 365 days a year.

  • We are barrier breakers- increasing help seeking among teens and young adult survivors of abuse.

  • We are trend setters- youth-driven innovation is our jam.

  • We are driven to achieve a Big Hairy Audacious Goal: educate and activate 10% of Gen Z youth across the U.S. by the year 2030. #BHAG2030

The work we do is fun, hopeful and challenging. Our goal is to educate and activate 10% of young people across the U.S. by the year 2030. This Big Hairy Audacious Goal, or our #BHAG2030, requires everyone on our team to show up with grit, passion, focus and love.


We boldly have an end date in mind; it's the day when domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers and mass shooting drills at school are no longer needed. That is the day when our work will be complete. To reach this culture changing goal, we lean on each other for support and value those who invest in us and partner with us to #UprootAbuse.
