Ronda Rousey is partnering with Nevada-based charities to raise funds and awareness for families impacted by domestic violence.
As she prepares for her UFC World Bantamweight Championship fight on Dec. 30, Rousey is selling "Fear the Return" t-shirts with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Noah's Animal House (NAH) and The Shade Tree Shelter. The fundraiser ends Dec. 14. Fans can buy the shirts here.
NAH has helped more than 1,000 pets by providing 80,000 nights of boarding to stay united with their families at The Shade Tree Shelter. Both charities are free of charge to families transitioning out of an abusive situation, often times helping them throughout their period of crisis.
Rousey also donated funds from an online auction of her autographed memorabilia to help raise awareness and funds during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
